Looking back to 1975 in my memory. Two scoops of mix per about a 2/3 fill of water in that nursing bucket with the white rubber nipple bucket. Taste test it. Should taste like really really creamy milk. Same as momma would make.

I can't say about that brand of milk replacer, the stuff I get at the feed mill the bag always has a cup buried inside and they suggest 8 oz. of powder to 2 qts water.

Watch the back end of the calf. I found the recommended amount is very generic . What calves are you feeding? When i was feeding if you feed a jersey the amount they said it would kill them most times that was for a Holstein. Same goes for a bigger Holstein versus a small one. Simple rule if there painting the walls back off

I agree with the others who said about 8-10oz per feeding of 2qt warm water is pretty close. Should be a marked measuring cup in the bag.
