The cost is $1 . 5 per hour per gallon for mixing, and $1 per hour per gallon for freezing. Production of a gallon of vanilla ice cream requires 3 units of milk, 2 units of eggs, 1 unit of pre-made powder, 2 hours of mixing, and 5 hours of freezing. Production of a gallon of mint chip ice cream requires 4 units of milk, 1 . 5 units of eggs, 0 . 5 units of pre-made powder, 2 hours of mixing, and 4 hours of freezing.
