Is 1.5lbs of CO2 enough for a keg?

So I volunteered my CO2 setup for a friend's keg party, but I only have 1.5# according to my scale. Last time I did this I ran out and had to drive home and rip out my keezer setup.

I mashed at 150F for 90 min. Although I was probably at 148 for the first 5 min after dough in due to striking too low.

Not sure about pH, I'm just using tap water and full volume BIAB no sparge.

5 gallon batch? I'm not very familiar with that beer, but I don't think it's very high gravity. Properly rehydrate your one packet and aerate well, you should be golden if the packet isn't too old.
