I recently bought 6 gallons of cider from whole foods (the one gallong carboys that have been discussed previously on the cider forum) and am planning on making several varieties, likely all using S-04 dry yeast. I assume that two packets at the most would be enough to adequately pitch into six gallons. Anyone have any suggestions / rules of thumb for dry yeast in cider?

I did a calculation for it using Mr. Malty's pitching rate calculator and 2 packets will do the job. I didn't bother using the "correct" pitching rate for my cider, I just poured a Wyeast pack into the carboy without making a starter or anything :p
