Default Hefeweizen Help!?

Hi all, long time reader, first time poster. I recently brewed (attempted to brew) a hefeweizen using WLP300. It is not fermenting. I already know that my OG was much too high at 1.080--not enough room in my boil kettle(s). It has been fermenting for 36 hours at about 71 degrees F. It has not attenuated/fermented at all. Is my beer salvageable? I agitated about 12 hours into fermentation, but still nothing. What can I do? Wait? Repitch a new yeast w/starter? Any help would be...helpful!

Welcome aboard!

(This is not the forum for advice, really)

Sounds like you need to add some boiled, cooled water and then pitch again.

Which forum did this thread start in, introductions?

Where it is now is correct.
