For normal Structural Quickcrete, 4-6 pints per sack (see instructions on back) - start with 4 pints and then add up to additional 2 as needed to get consistency you need as you mix. For your purpose, you want it so it stiffly clumps or slightly oozes out of a container when you tilt it, not runny - should be like a thick biscuit mix, not runny like cake or waffle batter. Rod it down into the hole around the post with 2x4 or yard tool handle (depending on available space around post), checking the plumb on the post as you go.

1 sack will yield 0.45 (roughly a half) cubic feet of concrete.
