Default First Higher Gravity Brew...Pitching Dry Yeasties

I have an OG of 1.082 for my IIPA. would pitching 3 packets of safale-05 be overkill?

Thanks!

Check out mrmalty's pitching calculator: Mr Malty Pitching Rate Calculator

It's a neat tool to help you decide the optimum amount of yeast to pitch. Two is enough, though.
