Easy ways to make a lot of formula at once?

My little guy is 2 & just drinks Neocate Jr so I make a lot of formula. I'm wondering if there is an easier way. We have those Tupperware shake containers with the wheel inside to help blend powder & liquid (it's made to make gravy & mix in the flour with out lumps). It makes 16 oz & I have 5 of them.
Anyone else found something that's working well to make a lot at once?

What about washing out a gallon jug that contained store bought water? Just measure your ounces and powder ratio into that, shake shak shake, and you have a gallon of his formula?

When my DS was drinking alot, i got the rubbermaid 32 oz. container with a pour spout and mixed it in that, and I found it really helpful and lasted.

Are you wanting a large container to hold a lot or are you wanting a lot of smaller easier to take along things?

I like the pampered chef mixing pitcher, there are two sizes and you pump the handle to mix

We just use the Dr. Brown's mixer. It doesn't do huge quantities but it mixes really well.

We used a 2-quart mixing pitcher - Rubbermaid makes one, and you can often find them at Walmart or Target for about $3.50. Otherwise, try a health food store - lots of people use them to mix powdered soy milk.

We have always had tons of bottles/sippys so I just fill them up so all I have to do is grab them but my son will take them cold so its nice and easy. I do about 28 oz too usually as any more gets to be a mess.

I used something similar to this (I did 4 ounces less than compacity and just shook it up. I prepped it the night before, so it would be good to go for the next day.
