More than four pounds and you could forget that there is beer under there somewhere.
Yah, from what I've read here it seems to be 1 lb per gallon (again, acording to your taste preference). In meads it seems to be 3 lbs per gallon or more since they are suppose to be much more sweet then beer of course. What I want is a beer with a cheery flavor in there, not a cherry soda with a slight beer flavor
