All depends on the yeast type so you really need to read the directions for the yeast used .
Interesting, I've never really looked at that yeast before.
They are recommending pitching rates of 1 gram per liter, presumably for a normal strength wort (12 degrees Plato). I can't recall any of the home brewing dry yeast proponents talking about pitching that much yeast. It seems that people think one 11 gram packet per 5 gallons is more than sufficient in that case.
