I cut the recipe in half and with the 1/4 c of water with the baking soda dissolved  it was too dry and would not hold together.

I added 4 ounces of water and it got the consistency it needed to be.

I tasted the first batch and added half again as much brown sugar and cinnamon and cloves to the remaing batter..

I used 9 cups of flour because I looked up how many cups were in 5lbs and it said 20.

So, If you make the full recipe, add 8oz water.

This is a 2.5 gallon container

After you finish the last batch, you put a cut orange in the container and seal it for a month.

I believe we replace the oranges two weeks into the cure time. THE ORANGES ARE VERY IMPORTANT.
