Should I put more yeast?
I just brewed my third batch, its a brown ale and turned out with a higher OG (1.080) than expected. I expected it to be 1.060, so there can be some user error involved. I pitched the yeast as suggested, but I'm nervous that it will not be enough, its been two days and everything is going smoothly, but should I put in another packet of yeast when I rack it to a secondary or not at all or anything?

Thanks for the help

Let it finish and then decide. Next time add more water after cooling to hit your OG

I thought about that, but then didn't know if it was that easy. Good to know for next time. Thank you

Use boiled / cooled water or bottled, if you have the fermentation space.

Beer will end up strong but fine, yeast may produce more esters but in a Brown that's not undesireable.
