When to put on new super

Previously kept bees for about 4 years but this is my first year back after a break. I have a super over a deep that is stacked absolutely full of drawn out but uncapped comb. Should I wait until 2/3 of the frames are capped before adding another super?

Another consideration is that the hive is absolutely brimming with bees and was concerned about swarming. At the moment I put an empty super on top of the uncapped super hoping that bees will keep capping as they are drawn to the empty. Did I screw the pooch?
