I just finished transferring my Saison to a sceonday so I could Dry hop. I just realized that I used 1 oz of Star san for 2.5 gallons of water vs the reccomend 0.5 oz of the label for sterilizing my 3 gallon carboy. Am I in trouble?

I think you'll be good, I've done that with iodine, star San and pbw. And I haven't had any weird flavors or smells in the last batch or 2. Good luck!
