Yeah I wouldn't worry if I were you, a CA Common strain has a workable range up to 68, and that
is as specified by the yeast producer. Word to the wise, once bottled, anything under 2 weeks
of aging w...

I don't have any experience adding in sugar, but perhaps find a suitable recipe and scale it

I think you simply added too much extract. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your process, but 3.5
