Just getting ready to bottle the 1 gallon batch of "kit-brew" Mrs Them gave me to get back into home-brewing, and in rereading the booklet that came with the kit, I realize that I put in roughly twice the called for yeast!

In the simplified, brewing-for-dummies style instructions, pitching the yeast is described as tearing open the enclosed package of yeast (exchanged by me for a fresh pack) and dumping it in the wort. Only later on in the booklet, it mentions one should use about half a 4-5 g packet.

Grumbling about proofreaders aside, should I just dump this batch and start a new one, is there a fix, or is this no biggie? It's been 17-18 years since the last time I brewed anything, and I don't recall anything relevant.
