    It probably would be a good idea to specify that the conversion is for non instant powdered milk. I use an instant powdered milk and a milk alternate that only requires 2 Tbs per 8 oz glass.

    If, like me, you don’t want to cut a lemon to make a little Buttermilk, my alternative is to put 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a measuring cup and fill to the 1 cup mark, then stir & stand.
    (1 cup = 8 oz or 250 ml)
