Well the ale shouldn't be WAY too carbonated. But it is true, those drops do carb on the high side. I would think an Irish red would be at 2.2 -2.4 PSI. The drops are probably 2.6-3.0.
Hats off to your wife for catching that though.
Next time: acquire some priming sugar, do the measurements (there are plenty of online calcs to help), boil 1 cup of water, mix in the sugar, rack beer on top of solution, (stirring GENTLY is optional), bottle away!
