I’m starting to mix my own liquids but I’m having a problem with measuring.
I have 200g scales that measure from 0.01 but for some reason the measurements aren’t right, i have followed recipes for 10ml which is approx 12g. When I reach the total for each ingredient I tare the scales so i can measure accurately but for some reason the liquid in the bottle when i have finished isn’t even past the half way point on the bottle!
is there anything I’m doing wrong or any other methods i can try?
Put a bottle on your scales and weigh out 10g of water that will show you where 10 ml will come to in your bottle - i have 50ml bottles that hold 65 ml and 100ml bottles that hold nearly 120 ml - I would just check how much the bottle holds.
Just tried the test weighing water as measured by a syringe. The difference was .5ml/mg for 60ml total. That’s .8%. I would consider that quite accurate and probably more a function of the syringe and needle than the scale. Looks pretty close to the yield I got from a batch.
