Just made a recipe that I have made numerous times, always using weights, and never had an issue, however, today the numbers looked a little large, in particular the vg weights. Still I thought it must be right and so I went ahead with the mix. On completion of mixing, instead of the recipe totalling the usual 150ml, its gone way over, closer to 180ml. Is anyone else experiencing this, or do I need to go buy a new set of scales?
thats weird, it could be a glitch or something a few weeks back the same type of thing happened to me i made 60ml of something and as i was pouring it oit of the beaker i to a 60ml bottle their was about 20 to 30ml left over hmmmmm
I noticed that too only it still wouldn’t be enough to make 20-30ml over in the final recipe. Just checked out the flavours and the Orange Cream has a lower manufacturer specified gravity: 0.970 g/ml compared to the BC Manufacturer specified gravity: 1.068 g/ml
Also I have checked the box in my setting to use Manufacturer specified gravity
Ah, that explains that. I usually avoid doing this myself, so that was why I noticed it right away. It was definitely not enough to make it over on it’s own, but if you mixed using SGs of 1, it would of been something to look in to.
Yes, they do. For the most part, it’s so miniscule and that’s why I don’t bother. Plus it’s hard to find every SG for over a thousand flavors, haha.
I didn’t know he uses them, so that’s why I questioned the weights.
So I must apologise, today again my mix appeared to be 20-30ml over. Frustrated, I tipped the mix out of the beaker into a measuring jug and found the quantity was infact all correct. So the issue is / was just a cheap beaker with inaccurate measurements marked on it. Note to self(and others), dont expect beakers bought on flea bay to be accurate
