I remember I had EXACTLY the same thoughts for my first batch!
I had put 1 1/4 cups, as it said on the package, and later realised
(to my horror) that Papazian's book said to NEVER use more than
3/4 cups. However, I sould've realxed, not worried, and had a
homebrew (I didn't have any yet), since the first batch came out
beautifully without any problems. So, relax, don't worry... :-)
