i think i used 8 oz for a 5 gallon batch. it was drinkable but is very sweet. i making a hard cider right now, im gonna let it ferment dry and then sorbate it and back sweeten with concentrated apple juice.
Cvillekevin has a post about all of his cider experiments, im thinking about cold crashing my next batch having it still but leaving in the apple sugar to have more of an authentic taste, maybe someday ill buy some cornies and they forcecarb but for the time being i have no space.
you could always sorbate it and then backsweeten with apple juice and then use a carbinator cap to add some bubbles also
