Well it's roughly half a cup per 1 gallon so half a cup would be good for about 4 liters

You will need to measure it though, there Is no set rule to put in and it will be perfect.

I use kent marine salt 2cups per 5 gal yields a steady 1.025
I use a 2 cup measuring cup and been doing this mix for years
but some salts may differ from others
remember your hydrometer is your friend

There are general rules of thumb here, but in reality every salt mix is different. This is something I have learned through changing brands over and over. Always check the directions.
