Hmmm... my last two salt brands were about 1.6 cups of salt per 5 gallons - I'd do the math for 1 gallon and start there and test salinity from there.

Just a follow up

It took me 2 1/4 cups to get 1.024 for 5 gallons using the Tunze salt.

I was using Instant Ocean before the Tunze and Instant Ocean salt use 1/2 cup of Instant Ocean salt for each U.S. gallon of water. That would be 2 1/2 cups
