If this were to happen to me id almost splurge for those carb tabs assuming you have 5 gallons?
I guess a dropper would be almost as easy.way cheaper too. I would go for 4 oz. I did 1 oz per

Ouch, I'd guess the only way the USA made model is that far off is if the paper inside has
dislodged and slid down (or is that up?). You might be able to tell, on mine the paper is held
in place with ...
