## 5-Gallon Bag-in-Box Guide

"How many drinks will I get from one five-gallon box of syrup?"

Although there is not a fixed number, here's an easy way to estimate how many drinks you would get from one 5-gallon BIB. 1. Your soda bag holds 5 gallons of syrup.
2. There are 128 ounces in 1 gallon. So, there are 640 ounces in 5 gallons.
3. Your soda fountain system will mix water and syrup at a 5 to 1 ratio.
4. Divide cup size by 6 for number of ounces of syrup used per cup.
Example for 10 oz. cup: 10 ÷ 6 = approximately 1.7
There are approximately 1.7 oz. of syrup used per each 10 oz. cup
5. Divide ounces. of syrup used per cup by 640.
Example: 640 ÷ 1.7 = approximately 376
6. This is the estimated number of servings per 5 gallon bag in box, not factoring in ice**

**These estimates do not account for the amount of ice in each cup. More ice per cup would require less syrup, thus more servings per box of syrup.
