That would get added to 3/4 gallons in a one-gallon container. I believe I added something to the water to increase the efficiency of the yeast mix, but don't recall off hand. From there, you would follow tbonedeluxe's diagram to finish the set-up. There are plenty of sources with all of the details and if you do a quick google search, but hopefully this helps out a bit. If I remember any other tips to improve the system then I'll let you know.
