3250dkh / 1500ml = 2.16 dkh per ml? * 144 ml = 312 dkh dosed per day? I can't math. I thought the recipe I'm following is your recipe.
2 1/4 cups baked baking soda dissolved in one gallon = 5300dkh
there's 3.78 liters per gallon. So, first decide what ratio is my storage container 1.5 liter to a gallon of water = 1.5 liters * 2.52 = 1 gallon. 2.25 cups per gallon / 2.52 liters per gallon = .89 cups per 1.5 liters. Ooops. Over the last three years, I may have gradually just gotten lax and reduced the amount of carbonate per 1.5 liter from .9 cups to .5 cups. . .
Which may reveal why I'm dosing more. . . Consumption may have gone up, but, the amount of product may have changed over time. . .
This could be my problem.
I'll gradually increase amount of product dissolved to liquid ratio.
dKH is not a per volume unit. The solution has the same dKH regardless of the volume. dKH is already alkalinity per unit volume.
My recipe is cups before baking, not after.
