Default star san to 1 gallon distilled water

I am terrible at math..I just mixed up 1 tsp and a few drops to 1 gallon of distilled water does that sound about right?.If you go over or under a little bit does it make much of a difference? thanks

Hmm, not sure it would be the end of the world if it was somewhere between 5ml-6ml+

"1 tsp and a few drops" is about 5 ml. Sounds close enough to me.

I write "1.5 ml/qt" on the back of my star san bottle so I don't have to do the math every time. (I also use a kid's medicine syringe -- those things are perfect.)
