We were given carobel powder but I have to admit I only used it for a few days as it was difficult to use when breastfeeding and I think it made him a bit colicky (perhaps because when giving as a paste it doesn't always mix with the milk in his stomach properly). Since baby started putting on weight better and isn't uncomfortable I'm happy to leave him as a 'sicky' baby for now.
I think we did give a Dr Brown's bottle of expressed milk with the carobel added, the quantities for mixing are on the packet. We used a Level 3 teat - you're supposed to use bigger teats as the milk is thicker.

I use one and a half scoops in an 8 oz bottle. It doesn't seem to be an exact science so I would just try half a scoop or 1 scoop in a 4oz and see how you get on. Going by the instructions on the box would make it really really thick I think. It is much better than gaviscon as it doesn't make them constipated!
