Higher PPM/Lower Desired PPM = factor

320/20 = 16

So, for each part of 320PPM you have to add 15 parts of DW to get to 20PPM at 16x the amount of 320PPM you started with.

1oz 320PPM + 15oz DW = 16oz 20PPM

To go the other way where you know how much 20PPM you want and need to figure out how much 320PPM to add to how much DW, again, the factor is 16. This means that the 320PPM is 1 part out of 16 which means to 1 part of 320PPM you need to add 15 parts water so the total is 16 parts.

So...

320/20 = 16

Lets say you want 8oz of 20PPM.

8oz/16 = 0.5oz (the 1 part)
0.5oz 320PPM (1 part) + 15 *0.5oz (7.5oz) DW (the 15 parts) yields 8oz of 20PPM

Here just put 0.5oz in a measuring cup and top off to 8oz volume with DW.

And the 8oz example above would be 1 US measuring tablespoon of 320PPM Colloidal Silver because a US measuring tablespoon is 0.5oz volume.

The above works for any PPM to any other PPM as long as you're going to a lower PPM (that should be obvious but...).

Amazing forum.

It took me a while but I finally had interest in making 320 gel capped. I had been avoiding it because not using gelatine is more familiar to me. I have made 1 batch out of a very recent malto 160ppm I did and then added the needed extra malto and gelatine as detailed on the forum and processed for another 160ppm. I have done a test dilution of 3.75ml with the remaining zero water filtered water to make 60ml and it is just a little tad darker than normal 20ppm and looks very much like Keph's 20ppm gel capped colour sample!

This dilution to 20ppm does not "quite" have the same crystal clarity of my actual 20ppm non-gel version but it is very close and I suppose an aspect of the gelatine inside it. But it looks great!

Thanks to everyone on the forum participating, making this the best place for Colloidal Silver information.

Oops. Never mind. I was right with my math the first time. Scratch this reply lol.
