Not the while pack but I'd say 2/3 or so. I think I over pitched.

K. I'm thinking of doing a half-batch of Apfelwein with 1118, and I was going to toss in the whole pack, but maybe I'll do like 2/3 - 3/4 to be on the safer side.

I'd scale it back even more. The while packet is for 5 gallons now that I think of it. So if you are doing a 2.5 gallon batch pitch half the packet.

I thought it didn't really matter how much you used for half-batches. I actually ended up making a full batch with 1118

I'll be making another batch in a couple weeks with a different juice and Wyeast 3068.

I pitched about 2 grams of 1118 into 1 gallon of juice with roughly half a pound of brown sugar and that was plenty to get through top up with about a quart going into secondary (fired up easily). Good carbonation at bottling with priming too. FG was .996.

Not to thread-jack at all (more to compliment this one) - I'm doing something similar to your experiment, but rather than alternate yeast, I'm seeing what 1118 can do to different brands/qualities of apple juice. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f32/cider-apfelwein-half-batches-375529/

As stated in my last post (in my thread), I think I'll take one of the last 2 brands of juice, and make an alternate batch with 3068.
So end result will be 3 batches with 1118 and 1 batch with 3068... and once those are done fermenting, I'll just keep pushing through ciders with different juice/yeast combos.
