I'm curious for people's opinion on this.
I brew 3 gallon batches rather than the standard 5. I know, I know - it would make more sense to just replace what I have with a 5 gallon setup, but...
Anyway, given that the Wyeast packs are measured so you can just dump the whole thing into 5 gallons of wort, what do you suppose will happen if I dumped one into three gallons of wort?
Is it a bad thing to have too much yeast in there? Will it lead to off flavors?
I'll be making an ale with a starting gravity @ 1.055 or so. In the primary for a week, secondary for two, then bottle.
