12 teaspoons or tablespoons per 2.5 gallons of water?

12 teaspoons. The first conversion I did was on 2.5 oz because I misread your post.

I'm assuming it's liquid ounces?

You have to weigh it I think. It is dry has a different volume then wet stuff. I got c Brite with my first kit, switched to Star San after the first batch.
If I remember, c brite says it is no rinse, but it contains bleech that should be rinsed.
So, be careful if not rinsing it.

12 teaspoons is really wrong. They make small one use packages. They are 0.8 oz. and they make 2 gallons of no-rinse solution. The packs are small, it can't be more than a tablespoon (3 teaspoons). Time to get a scale or borrow one.
