if you got a food scale that weighs in grams use that
1gram dextrose = 1 carbohydrate so however many you want in your PWO shake

The ON scooper won't work because the protein powder will be a different density than the dextrose.

If you don't have a food scale, 1 Tbsp of Dextrose is about 10g.

4 Tablespoons is a LOT of sugar.

Yes 1 tbsp is about 10g of carbs. And if I remember correctly the ON whey scooper is just about 4 tbsps...thus a scoop of dextrose is about 40g carbs.

The ON scooper is 70mL.

1 Tbsp = 15mL

So 1 ON scooper has 4.6 Tbsps

I believe dextrose has 4g of carb for every 1.25 tsp.

So that means: 3.2g per tsp.

3 tsp = 1 Tbsp

9.6g per Tbsp...or as someone else stated...10g.

1 ON scooper has 44.2 g of carbs of dextrose.

I use it...I love it...I find it tastes better than table sugar...

My PWO shake is:

2 scoops ON whey
1/2 scoop Dextrose
1/2 scoop Maltodextrin
5grams micronized creatine

I get about 48g protein and almost the same for carbs...I usually get more carbs, since half a scoop is not usually exact.

I believe the only thing I've seen around here for maltodextrin is called "Carbo Gain." A big huge tub of it but it's dirt cheap. You could try some place local as well.

NOW also makes a product called Carbo Gain as someone else mentioned.

Just search Maltodxtrin on BB.com, and I think it is the first link.
