Default Yeast from previous cider batch as a starter for new cider batch?

Hi Guys, I am about to make my first raw juice cider. I am also trying a small experiment with some store bought apple juice in a 1 gallon demijong which should be ready to rack to a secondary at about the same time I get my 5 gallons of raw juice. Can I use the leftover yeast from the 1 gallon demijong as a starter and just pitch it into the raw 5 gallons of juice?
