When doubling or trippling a recipe, do you need/want to double the yeast?

I am brewing my first cider this weekend and am in the process of getting all the ingredients around. The recipe I have is for 1.5 gallons of cider using 1 packet of Safale S-05 yeast. I am planning on making 3-4 gallons...Should I double? Thanks!

Christian

The yeast packets are good from 1 to 5 gallons. No need to double it.
