What David said....you may get a bit of yeast bite while sampling it green, but if you give it time to flocculate out and condition it will be fine. It is far better to overpitch then underpitch. And brewers brewing 2.5 gallon batches often pitch the size they would use (like an entire packet of dry yeast) for a 5 gallon batch, to no ill effects.
