How much pectic enzyme should I add to 5 gallons of cider? And does cider need yeast nutrient?

Not sure if this helps but reading other posts I just made a 5 gallon batch of blueberry cider and I added 1 tsp of yeast nutrient per gallon

I would highly suggest some nutrient and/or energizer. It'll help keep your yeasties happy and prevent the sulfur smell. As for the pectic enzyme, it will almost always say the dosage on the bottle. Mine is 1/2 tsp. per gallon but it might be different for you.

The sodium metabisulphite had it on the package but the pectic enzyme doesn't. I'll put some nutrient in there too.
