Let it ride. Yes you are under pitching a bit but not to worry. Just rehydrate the yeast. To do so Boil water for 10 min, cool to 75-80 degrees, add yeast and stir it up. Cover with foil for a half hour then add it to your wort. I have pitched a single pack into a brew that is as strong without re-hydrating the yeast and it came out fine.

I vote "let it ride". Don't know your recipe details, but a "dark wheat" as you posted probably has enough other flavor components to mask any minor off flavors. Wheat beers don't have "clean" flavor profiles anyway. I expect it will just start slow and maybe finish a bit high, but otherwise probably be OK.

Re pitching rate: according to BeerSmith for a 1.086OG, 5.00 gallons, you need 26.38g of dry yeast (WB-06 comes in 11.5g packets).

Something to consider for high gravity brews in the future: appropriate pitching levels and aerating the wort. Both help it get off to a good start and reduce the odds of off flavors or other ferm problems.

See Fermentis web site for re-hydration instructions. With dry yeast, I have re-hydrated and then pitched into a starter to step up with no ill effects.

Let it ride. You'll be fine.

I'll also vote "let it ride" especially since you have signs of active fermentation.

Let it ride, you would be surprised by what yeast can do.

1/2 krausen has formed, and we have a lot of CO2 production. This went off a lot faster than my Noddy 2 weeks ago. Now I will check on it every few hours.
In the last few months I've missed a day of work because I drank 120 oz of green beer. Yes, I searched this site and figured out my kit was a pipe dream....ferment for 1 week, bottle for 2 weeks....drink great beer at the 3 week mark. My Toilet Paper bill, almost cost as much as the kit. My second batch was a brown ale. It was in Primary for 2 weeks, and is racked to secondary for a week. Next week I plan to bottle it at the 3 week mark. Then I will wait a month and then try it. I have this odd feeling that I may be missing Monday to babysit this blow off tube.

A suggestion: forget about calendar dates and base your decisions on hydrometer readings...this will keep your TP bill down.

Route the blow off tube into a bucket and just let it go...it will be fine.

Drinking 120 oz of any beer at once would have me rockin' the thunder bucket for at least a morning, if not most of the day.

If it is going that fast, you should be fine.

As to green beer having adverse effects, I usually associate that with less than a week corked in a bottle.

Some people are probably more sensitive.

I drink mine at a week frequently and don't have big issues.
