Can you use too many oxygen absorbers?

You may need more or less depending on your individual conditions and the remaining residual volume of air. There is no danger in adding too many as this does not affect the food. Oxygen represents 20% of the total volume of air and the number in cc's above represents the amount of oxygen that would be absorbed.

How many oxygen absorbers do I need for a 5 gallon bucket?

For 5-gallon bags you should use 5-7 300cc oxygen absorbers or 1 2000cc oxygen absorber. You should adjust this number up a little bit if you are storing less dense foods, such as pasta or some lentils, because the bags will contain more air even when full in comparison to very dense foods such as rice or wheat.
