    So I bought a 10 oz pkg of corid powder. It makes 125 gallons. 4oz makes 50 gallons. I need to make it 1 gallon at a time. How much powder do I need, in teaspoon measure?

    I can't believe I can't convert this. I'm an accountant for heaven's sake. I think my brain is fried today.

    I think it would be about 1/2 teaspoon per gallon, but check my math....

    3 Teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon = 1/2 oz. dry measure

    10 oz. pkg. = 20 Tablespoons = 60 Teaspoons

    Therefore, 60 Teaspoons makes 125 gallons

    So....125 gal. divided by 60 Teaspoons = 1/2 Teaspoon per gallon (approximately)

    I agree with motherjean.

    This is, of course, assuming that 8 ounces of this powder is one measured cup in volume. Not all substances work with that formula, so you might want to check the volume - or just measure it - before you start dosing it out. If there is one and a quarter cups of powder total in that package, then we're right. If not, we might need to recalculate.

    I hope that made sense. I'm no mathematician.

    I'm in nursing school and we just had an exam on dosage conversions...
    4 oz X oz
    ------------ x ---------
    50 gallons 1 gallon

    50X=4

    solve for X, 4 divided by 50 = .08oz

    .08oz = .48 teaspoons or 1/2 teaspoon (per gallon)
