    What you buy ready to use is .5% so that is what I try to mix up.

    For a gallon, you want .64oz of full strength (128*.005). My concentrate is 36%, so I would use 1.7oz of the concentrate to the gallon (.64/.36).

    So, 2oz of 36% concentrate in a gallon of water will get you a little stronger than the .05%.

    If you have a different concentrate, just substitute the % concentrate in the above formula where I have .36. If you want a quart, use 32 instead of 128 in the formula.

    You need 6.4 ounces of 10% per gallon to get to .5%. Your 1 ounce to a gallon is way too weak.

    Oh, sorry, didn't realize you were a cow. Yep, the rate for a cow is .15%. For people it is .5%

    Difference is you're putting it on a cow. For humans you're just soaking or applying to clothing and letting dry

    If you had your own answer, why even ask? If you do what I said, you will have exactly the ratio you buy buy in the "ready to use" spray bottles from Sawyer. But, it is obvious you are going to do something different anyway.
