Default Check My Math

so i am trying to determine how much liquid fruit extract i should add to a 12oz bottle. most recipies call for 4oz per 5 gallons, which have worked fine for me. In determining how many tsp per bottle, is the answer .45 tsp?

i am trying to experiment with different flavors, etc. from one batch.

thanks!

looks right to me

24 tsp per 5 gallons, 4.8 tsp per gallon, .0375 per oz x 12oz = .45 tsp per bottle

This is why I want this country to go metric. Keeping track of tsp, quarts, pints, and oz is nuts.
