Overpitching w/ 3gal Berliner Weiss

Planning a 3 gal AG Berliner Weiss based off JZ’s recipe on the BN podcast. He recommended pitching 1 pack each of lacto & yeast (5335 & 1338) for a 5 gallon 1.032 wort. If I’m only doing 3 gal will it cause issues to use the same qty, or should I cut the pitch? I want the ratio to be 1:1 and know that will be hard to “eyeball.”

Thanks,
Pat

You’re good. I’ve read that overpitching by 20% and more is bad though.

Pretty sweet application, and it makes pitching painless.
