    i bought a package from the feed store. Problem is that it is for 110gal. of water. Obviously i don't want to mix that much at a time. The package is 8oz. How much should i mix in a gal. of water.

    OK, admittedly, My math has NEVER been my best subject,
    BUT:
    1 cup (8oz)powder= 16 tbs= 48 Tsp
    1 Tsp powder to 2.5 gallons
    1/2 Tsp per gallon
    2.5 Gal=9 Quarts

    so you could also use about 1/8 a tsp per quart of water...

    That's just about a pinch!!!
