    @Dexter just to clarify if they say 0.5ml/galon of recipe 1 does that mean its 0.25ml of calcium and 0.25ml of alkaline or 0.5ml each

    Basically you need to decide wich recipe you want to make. if you are referring to the table they say what you must add. so it will 0.5ml per 3.78l of water. Use the calculator. Its much easier and it tells you exactly how much to add.
