Say 1 cup took 3 tsp.
You would then need 144 tsp... theres 48tsp in 1 cup so you would need roughly 3 cups of the sweetener/concentrate to make the entire batch taste the same.
I would take a SG reading of the single cup and after I added two cups I would start to slow down and keep testing the SG till it hits the same.
These numbers are just to show you how, not actually HOW to do it.
. Should I add another can of lemonade concentrate as well? Or should I just add the sugar one tsp at a time and find a ratio from there (and ignore adding more concentrate)
Also, why does the recipe have you put the 3 crushed campdens in the must before you even add the yeast starter? I thought you added campden tablets once fermentation was finished. It doesn't tell you to add them at the end for sweetening, but should I add them in the ratio suggested (along with the potassium sorbate?
