Not sure exactly which yeast "brewers yeast" is, but I use a tiny pack(5g I think?) for 5 gallons, have done several one gallon batches with half packs and the latest one with 1/3 pack per gallon, with great results, so 1/3 cup is ALOT of yeast.

From bulk barn website :"Brewer’s yeast should not be confused with baker’s yeast, which is used to make bread rise. Brewer’s yeast is an inactive yeast, meaning the yeast cells are not live and have no fermentation or leavening power."
