Half a Gallon? Sheesh! My first thoughts would be cracked connector
fitting under the Expansion Tank and second would be the two O-rings
connecting the metal coolant pipes to the cylinder heads (underneath
the the air cleaner intake). Unless the coolant leak is at the front
of the motor -- which would point to water pump. In any case, find
out WHERE the leak is coming from FIRST.
