Thx!
I mix mine in 1 gallon increments: 6ml (0.2oz) StarSan to 1 gallon water and I measure that with a small syringe (I think you can get them at the pharmacy). I like mixing 1 gallon at a time because I can just dump it back in a gallon jug when done for storage. Hope this helps.

+1 on the syringe. Using a syringe of the appropriate size makes a huge difference in accurate measurement.
