that probably is over done for a light beer. one packet of dry yeast is usually enough. its all good though. also something to think about is a blow off tube. that way if your fermentation is super crazy like this one it won't make a mess!

Fermented at 72F ambient or are you measuring the fermenter temp?

I've had a beer go up to 72F while being in a 65F basement. Yeast metabolic activity creates a decent amount of heat.
