Do NOT add the flavour pack..you won't need it. Nor, drink anything in between because you won't need it. A gallon is enough.
Definitely drink it with the straw.
The prep should be kept in the fridge..you won't need ice.
Pour your first glass...set the timer for 10 minutes. Drink it with the straw as far back as you can get it (because you won't taste anything that way) and drink it all.
Pour your next glass...set the timer for 10 minutes...drink after it goes off...
pour, set timer, drink...etc.
The reason I suggest pouring it and letting it sit for 10 minutes is that it'll take some of the intense chill out of it.
I'll be doing my 8th prep today....and I use the gallon based on preference and results.
I've used that process for 20 years.
Let us know how it goes.
