Yes, i have been doing that. I have all of that info in pool math. Actually, I think a member above (instead of pool math) said it should take 1.5-2.0 gallons to get to 12 so that's what i used in the beginning and used extrapolation for the next batch per what happened with the 1.75 gallons. i say 1.5 gallons because i couldn't remember how much it was in ounces and it was just faster when i was typing. lol
I will stick to pool math from now on. Am i going to need stabilizer in the near future? i can get it when i go for more reagents. thank you Dirk.

Use your test kit, Pool Math and this page to answer that question! I'm teaching you to fish, not handing them out! 🎣 ;)
