I’m New to making juice been doing it for about a year now, I use two glass funnels and syringes. I’m trying to figure out a faster way to make juice as the demand gets overwhelming. Any ideas? Then I can make some better ones and be faster. Thanks all
Switch to mixing by weight. You will be surprised how much quicker, cleaner, and easier it is compared to syringes.
You’ll save SO much time when you switch to mixing by weight!
Invest $30 in a scale now and see an amazing immediate boost in productivity!
and money wasted on syringes and pipettes and no real messes to cleanup. A couple paper towels and you’re done.
Thanks a bunch. I’ll look into it
Moving to a scale was the best thing for my mixing. Now to get a good heated magnetic stirrer, but those don’t seem to be too cheap. Really, really want one though!
Thx for the link
When you get a scale, do you need to get calibration weights to go along with it, or will it self-calibrate?
If you haven’t bought that scale yet, you might consider this one instead:
I have that Etekcity scale, and It seems every time I am mixing a small sample, when I want the scale to be a bit accurate, it wants to start jumping around on me. Tare it, and it jumps .03 just as I am ready to dispense a flavor. Tare it, and it sits at zero, and no matter how careful I am with my movements, it jumps .04 the other way. 5 or 6 times of going through this process and it usually settles down. It’s just a fairly touchy scale and I have used a lot better. Even with no air movement at all and me holding my breath. For what we use them here for they aren’t really that bad though I guess. But I want a better one damnit.
I put that Etekcity scale on my Amazon wish list, but after reading your post I’ve replaced it with the one you recommended. Thanks. I hope to order it soon.
You need to buy calibration weights
Someone the other day, discussing scales, said this AWS LB-501 digital scale does NOT shut down if you have the AC cord [supplied with it] in use. I have not verified that [because I am lazy, or old and forgot] as I haven’t dug out the AC cord, and only use the 4 AA batteries [supplied with it].
I have several digital scales, some are pricey, and must be accurate for my use in reloading ammo, and this AWS LB-501 works as well as [almost] any of them…unless you drag out the digits to the right of the decimal.
OK…I dug out the AC power cord…it was easier than finding a place to plug it in [without me having to get off my butt]. It has been sitting for 13 minutes (totally untouched) and has NOT shut down !!!
Just put on one 200g weight, and it is within 3/100g accuracy…
Cross-checked it with one of my lab scales [$$$$$] and it reads within .0019g with the same weight.
Good enough ? [p.s. 20 minutes later, and the scale is still on.]
Can confirm…I’ve left it on overnight and it doesn’t turn off…I’ve had it for months now and periodically check the calibration with weights…it’s always right on
