I wonder if I pitched too much yeast. I had 1 pint of washed yeast and 1 pack of dried yeast and this is what I got after just 2 days.

Not too worried, just trying to learn how much yeast to use. This is only my 3rd batch and I've not had this much settle out so quickly before

That's not just yeast. That's trub and yeast together. Completely normal. Use MrMalty or Yeastcalc or some such calculator to figure out how much to pitch.

I always pitch big. Don't worry about it, it's fine.
