Ok, I was told that when converting a 1 gl recipe to 3 gl, don't triple the......something, tannins, acid blend?????? Now I forgot...

Does not make sense to me....if you made 3, one gl batches, then poured them together...what the heck....it's all tripled....

But, i'm doing an Oregon cherry wine...3 lbs puree per gl....

with 1.5 tsp acid blend
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1.5 lbs sugar
1/2 tsp enzyme
1/4 tsp tannin

I did a cherry port that basically tripled the sugar and berries...8 lbs berries per gl...and it was awesome!....

the wine above is my cheap, card game wine....

By gl you mean gigalitre right? If so I think you'll need more than 1.5lbs of sugar.

+1 on the yeast. It will make as many yeast cells as it needs to do the job, 1 gallon or 6 gallons.

Would you be willing to share your recipe for the cherry port?
