Making hard cider, how much yeast?!

Question: Making hard cider, how much yeast!?
I'm gonna make hard cider, but all the directions I can find say to use one pack of yeast for a gallon!. If I have a bottle of yeast, how much bottle yeast is equal to one pack!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

The directions you speak of refer to a 1g packet of dry wine yeast!.

Wine and beer yeast are the same type of yeast as baking yeast, but a different strain!. They all do the same thing, but each one does it a little differently!. Baking yeast leaves a funky tasting cider!. It won't be bad or dangerous, just very yeasty!. It's not as catastrophic as what a lot of the "no, it's all wrong/bad/sucky/whatever" people will tell you, but it won't be that good, either!.

All in all, a teaspoon should do the trick just fine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

2 and a 1/4 teaspoons

you will be fine with 1 or 2 teaspoons!. Remember, yeast multiply anyway!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
