An suggestions on a good scale [R]

Hey fellow Ents, Our scale died and my husband is set on getting a tri-beam scale. He hates digital scales due to past experiences, but a tri-beam is just way too bulky. Any suggestions on a good digital scale that might bring him around without being too expensive?

I'm a silversmith and I have to very accurately weigh gemstones and precious metals every day.

I use this $15 scale to weigh fractions of carats and it is way more accurate than you need.

In the old days, a triple beam stolen from the high school chemistry laboratory was the gold standard, but not anymore

So I’ve heard that magic mushrooms grow in cow crap and living on a beef cattle farm, that’s convenient 😂

So my question was, in terms of size (not weight, I don’t have a scale for grams), could someone help me microdose? (don’t wanna hallucinate just yet lol, there’s family everywhere) I also may need help confirming if I’ve picked the correct mushroom. When I pick it I’ll add a pic to this thread.

$13 worth it. When MD, you shouldn't feel it though, 0.15g was good for me, 0.2g was too much. For MD, you need a scale. It's "micro dosing" you have to get down to the micros.... Lol...

Ok I'd like to say I have taken breaks in the past (2-3 days) with little to no side effects what so ever. Well, I'm on a remote location for work and I've run out. Today was day 4 and things are just getting worse. I'm constantly aggravated, restless,haven't slept more than 3 hours a night in 3 days, and the RLS is killing me. My question is what else should I expect and how much longer will this last? I've got about a week left before I go home and restock so any tips on going through this would be appreciated. For reference I've been taking roughly 10g-20g a day for about 3 months since my last break.

You can get a good scale on Amazon for ten dollars. This is a good one because it goes to the 0.01 and maximum weight is 100g. This one goes to the 0.1, maximum is 600g and it is a little less expensive. A level, unpacked measuring teaspoon is 2.5 grams give or take a few tenths. A level unpacked measuring tablespoon in the ballpark of 7.5 grams.

Check this one out it's only $10 and it weights to .00 so you're not potentially unknowingly dosing up to 50mg off what you want to be. I've been using these exact ones for like 6 years now and haven't ever had a problem with them and they're pretty commonly recommended scales.

https://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-AWS-100-Digital-Resolution

Edit: And btw you don't necessarily need a .00 scale when it comes to regular phenibut but imo the $10 convenience is worth it. Things like f-phenibut where 50mg makes a potential huge difference is where you really need to be using a .00 scale.

You could use it, but the resolution is low. For dosage purposes I'd recommend a 0.01g scale such as the AWS-100 which will accurately measure within about 50 milligrams.

Cj4000 only does half gram increments, not good enough for me for espresso. Sc-2kg does 0.1g, which is good, but it’s spendy.

Get a scale like this and take the guesswork out of it.

Quantity of leaf is really a personal choice, but I typically use 2-2.5 gm per 6-8 oz of water. That could mean 3 teaspoons of a light fluffy tea, or a 1 teaspoon for a dense tea. Really depends on the kind of tea you're drinking, which is why for me a scale works best.

Darjeeling Autumn Crescendo from Glenburn [Review] [R]

1 year, 3 months agoYatraTeaCo posted submission on tea.
April 23, 2018

Darjeeling Autumn Crescendo [Strong note, not my first Darjeeling. Also, had it the previous day Grandpa Style. Will do again for better review]

Bought from Indigo Tea Anchorage, Alaska; Supplier is Glenburn.

Measurement, approximately 2 Tbs spoons

Served in a 16 oz. ceramic Starbucks cup using a Forlife basket infuser. Temp conditioned, or “washed” every time.

Temp, approximately 190F from an industrial coffee brewer (of red lever spicket fame).

3 Steeps

First Steep, 4 min, Liquor is black as pitch:

Honestly this represented everything I hate normally about black teas, an experience I’m familiar with the traditional Western tea bag experience. It is darker, it’s strongly bitter but can tell it’s of fine quality. It just tastes like plain tea, that traditional tea taste you get from Lipton or some English Breakfast style. I’m new to the tea world, and I’m going to take a stab at these but I would say Darjeeling would be a common leaf in English Breakfast (Maybe because India was in the Realm?). I don’t have anything positive to say. After a few sips I realized it would probably be best whitened and sweet. Added about a TBSP and a half of H&H and two packets Splenda. At the level in my cup, might have added too much H&H, perfectly sweet. Other than the heavier than intended H&H, this is ironically one of the best creamed teas I have had. I believe a hint of too much leaves may have been responsible, because I do not believe a fine teas was meant to be this strong where no aroma or taste could be undistinguishable than some “$2 box of 100 packs” tea. Final Thought: Too strong, maybe too many leaves. Not delicate. Though one of the best sweetened and creamed Blacks I have had.

Second Steep, 4 min, Liquor is a dark honey:

I figured the first infusion was due to heavy handed measurement. I hear that after the first steep you add a little extra time; to weaken the brew I gave it the same time to maybe bring it. Smart move! Lighter in color, I get a wonderful earth aroma, slight grass and leaves with a hint of floral. Such a wonderful name for a tea with such an appropriate smell. To the label it says it was picked in November, which I assume is a third wash? Well it will be wonderful to try this Fall while basking in our Alaskan yellow and purple foliage. I get some slight sweetness that is over powered by the delicate bitter earth notes. Near the end, it does get overshadowed with bitterness. When finished, there is a decent amount of fannings. Final Thoughts: I think this is how it was intended for a first steep. Glad I went through with more steepings. The bitterness from the fannings at the end wasn’t a total turn off, but I would have enjoyed sipping on those earth notes a tad bit longer.

Third Steep, 6 min, Liquor is a rosey gold honey: This is phenomenal! The smell was like rose petals and lilac. Still a bit earthy. It feels dainty, it feels delicate, and it’s just plain smooth. The floral notes come through in the taste as well, but a wonderful natural sweetness lingers. Everything lingers on the front and the back of the tongue. It’s like a little gift to just stay so you can enjoy. Best steep. Cannot believe how good this is. Final Thought: I just wanted to see how well 6 min would actually do. I wasn’t going to drink a third infusion but that was a really smart thing to do, otherwise I would not have experienced a magnificent opus, and a highly entertaining experience. I am looking forward to buying First Wash and Second wash before the last bags get snagged. It’s amazing how a cup can go from fresh soil, to Fall foliage in a cup, to just a splendid sweet botanical garden over the course of a couple steeps.

Edit: some (noticed) spelling and punctuation. At work, spent too much time, will go over after work! Sorry if too sloppy.

It may be overkill to some, but I use a simple digital scale to measure out 2.5 gm for a 6-7 oz cup of tea. I realised I am not good with eyeballing leaf, so this small scale works well.

  • Is there a technique you want to discuss?
  • Just have a general question?
  • Read the side bar and still confused?
  • Pretty sure you've infected your first batch?
  • Did you boil the hops for 17.923 minutes too long and are sure you've ruined your batch?
  • Did you try to chill your wort in a snow bank?
  • Are you making the next pumpkin gin?

Well ask away! No question is too "noob" for this thread. No picture is too tomato to be evaluated for infection! Seriously though, take a good picture or two if you want someone to give a good visual check of your beer.

Also be sure to use upbeers to vote on answers in this thread. Upvote a reply that you know works from experience and don't feel the need to throw out "thanks for answering!" upvotes. That will help distinguish community trusted advice from hearsay... at least somewhat!

2) To piggy back on this, I got this scale (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012LOQUQ/ref=ohauidetailpageo03s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) with this weight (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SVUBYE/ref=ohauidetailpageo03s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for calibration, and it works perfect for hops/brewing salts. The reviews all indicate that its great for times when amounts matter (be it insulin dosages or less-than-legal drugs that charge by the gram), so I figure it's probably good enough for hops and calcium carbonate.

Dilution of Brewing Salts for Storage [R]

I'm brewing on a fairly minimal setup right now but want to get into water chemistry. Although I don't want to shell out any money for a decent scale that is accurate to 0.01 grams, I do have a fairly nice graduated syringe and a couple of different sizes of pippettes. Has anyone attempted to keep their brewing salts in distilled water at known dilutions and measure out volumes instead of masses?

My plan is to use 1, 2, or 3 liter PET bottles filled with distilled water and whole packages of salts. I'd measure out larger quantities with a graduated syringe thats marked at 5ml increments and then use a small pippette thats marked at 0.25ml increments. Any advice?

I've been doing keto for the past 4 months and yes I've fallen off the wagon here and there (who doesn't enjoy a few beer once in a while) but recently I've had an issue with recovery after a workout. I workout strictly for performance and the look of muscle is just a bonus. I'll be sore for 4-5 days after a workout which has never happened before when I lived off a carb heavy diet. My current macros are 181 protein, 174 fat, and 30 carbs. Is there anything that I can do to help the recovery process aside from the normal BCAA and protein shake.

Electrolyte Guide:

Materials Needed:

  • Sodium: Salt / Lite Salt
  • Potassium: Lite Salt
  • Magnesium: Magnesium Citrate Powder off of Amazon
  • Scale: Must measure to the hundredths of a gram (0.00). I use this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012LOQUQ/ref=ohauisearch_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  • Water Bottle: I use 40oz Takeya Flask (same as Hydroflask)

Mixing:

  • Sodium for my himalayan salt is is 580mg for 1.5g in weight, I weight ~1200mg or 3g in weight. This varies from bottle to bottle, you have to read the label.
  • Lite Salt is 290mg sodium, 350mg potassium for 1.4g weight. I weight 2.1g or 1.5x the serving, so I get roughly ~450mg sodium and 425mg potassium.
  • Magnesium Citrate Powder, I drop a pinch ( there are tiny measuring spoons you can buy) for something like 200-300mg magnesium.
  • I drop it all into an empty bottle, and then put water in it shaking/swirling the bottle. This may end up grainy if you drink right away (I did this for a while) or if you let it sit it’ll mix better. Alternatively, I turn on the kettle and pour a small amount of hot water into the bottle and the mixture dissipates, then fill the rest with cold water. This makes the electrolytes blend much easier into the rest of the liquid.

Notes:

  • I do 2 bottles a day, so in the end I get near 4g in sodium and 900mg potassium (2x 1800mg and 2x 450mg potassium). Lyle McDonald recommends 5000mg sodium/1000 mg potassium minimum.
  • I also heavily salt/soy sauce/spice up foods for the rest of the salt I need.
  • If I sweat working out or on a hot day doing nothing, I take in more sodium (salt). The body will use salt before the potassium, and too much potassium can send you to the hospital, so I would rather have extra sodium than not.
  • If I get headaches (never had before in my life until I did keto) I know I need to take in salt, so I’ll drink broth or again drink salt and water.
  • On workout days I usually add 750-1000mg in sodium, and 250mg in potassium into the preworkout I’m taking (caffeine/beta alanine/l-citrulline malate/MCT oil).
  • Lastly, because I had this scale I tried measuring spoons of salt/lite salt and it was highly inaccurate. Also I use caffeine powder, and 300mg caffeine is really different than 600mg caffeine and you’ll be in bad shape taking too much at once.
  • You can alternatively use magnesium elemental and mix it in hot water, mix with cool water and then maybe have 1:8 ratio of magnesium to water and spray it on after/before a shower (takes a few minutes to pass through the skin) which is a way to avoid swallowing magnesium. There are sprays already made online for more $$ than making it yourself. You can also epsom salt bath.

That scale says 0.01oz which is very different from 0.01g (which is what you want). I use one of these.

edit: The scale I linked only goes up to 100g, so if you plan mixing large batches, like over 100ml, get something with a higher limit - I never mix over 60ml at a time so it's fine for me.

Please buy a scale. You can get one for $15. [R]

Too many folks spending money on expensive drugs then saying: I don't want to buy a scale. I can't find one in my country. I can't afford it.

This is the scale many people here use. Aliexpress will ship to almost every country.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Portable-Milligram-Digital-Scale-20g-x-0-001g-USA-Fast-Free-Shipping/32717660707.html

If you live in the US, you can get the same scale for a little more, but with 2 day shipping from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012TDNAM

Please just buy a scale. It's worth it. Thank you.

Edit: You do also need to know how to use a milligram scale correctly. Here's a link to a write up I did: https://www.reddit.com/r/phenibut/comments/6g0neh/how_to_use_a_milligram_scale/dimm8iy

Adrafinil mixed with water (to calibrate dosage)? [R]

1 year, 11 months agoeverydayguy20 posted submission on afinil.
Sept. 12, 2017

Someone asked a few months ago whether you could crush modafinil and mix with water, to take into an exam. I have a similar question with different motivations.

Could adrafinil (not modafinil) powder be mixed with water and retained for a medium-term length of time (like a few days to a couple weeks) and retain its potency?

The reason I ask is that I currently have 300mg capsules and this is usually too much for me to take at one time. I have cut up the capsules and used part of the powder, but this is sloppy and imprecise. I don't want to bother with buying a tiny spoon and measuring microdoses if I don't have to.

I thought that maybe an alternative solution was to just pour the powder into water and mix it up, noting the amount of fluid, and then whenever I wanted a dose, just give it a stir and then measure out the amount of water corresponding to the adrafinil dose I wanted. But I didn't know if the product would degrade over time if left in water.

Sept. 14, 2017

I think you're really only option is to dump them all out and mix them really good to make sure there is an even balance between filler and adrafinil and use a scale, then just buy powder from now on which is widely available and cheaper.

I use this scale for adrafinil https://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-Digital-Scale-sensitivity/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=sr12?ie=UTF8&qid=1505399726&sr=8-2&keywords=american+weigh+scale

What Kind of Scale to Measure Many Grams of Kratom? [R]

Sept. 8, 2017

I currently have a gemini-20 milligram scale which only measures up to 20 grams I think. What kind of scale do you use to measure like 100 grams of kratom? Would it be a "gram scale" or something different?

any links to pictures would be appreciated, or the exact make and model of your scale. Im not good with numbers so I can't figure out which scales are good for what. Ounces confuse me so grams would be preferred (if ounce scales are even a thing?) lolol

Edit: Thank you all for the helpful info. Think I've got a grasp on this thing now ;)

  • Creatine can be taken any time, 5g everyday, even on days you don't lift. Some folks get a bloated feeling, so I wouldn't take it before working out. I usually take mine after I work out in the morning. Then I have the whole rest of the day to stay hydrated, you have to drink a lot of water with creatine, so I'd also expect the scale to go up a few lbs just from water weight retention. Creatine sucks up water into the muscles as it's trying to pull as much into the muscles as possible. Lots of scientific data about this increasing one last rep.

  • I used to use a ton of preworkouts, now I just buy bulksupplements and a weigh scale that can measure up to hundredths, and really small micro measuring spoons so it's easier to get out of the bag. I just use caffeine and beta alanine for the fire ants feel before the workout. BE SURE OF MEASUREMENTS, you'd be in a world of hurt if you go over 600mg of caffeine (200mg is like a cup of black coffee at starbucks). I've only ever gone up to 400mg, and usually it's more like 200-350mg

  • Weigh Scale I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012LOQUQ/ref=ohauisearch_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  • Measuring Spoons: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009X1P9S/ref=ohauisearch_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  • Creatine any time, don't need it before the workout, only thing you need if you want is caffeine. I highly recommend 1000mg salt and 300mg potassium (from no salt/lite salt). You can use MCT oil, but i would wait on that until later.

  • If you're just endurance training (running/cardio) I wouldn't use creatine. Creatine is made for the weight lifting and contractions to get bigger muscles. Now if you're weight training (anywhere inside 1rep-15reps) for bigger muscles, then I'd just take creatine everyday.

  • BCAAs is recovery, not really necessary during a workout, but some people swear to them. It's a waste of money, you can just get it in a whey protein shake after the workout. I usually take one after I workout (just regular whey protein) as it already has some BCAAs in them. I wouldn't take it for endurance cardio runs; many people on here have documented their endurance is through the roof once keto adaptation takes place. They only need water and just destroy marathons or cycling runs or longer runs in general.

I ordered some powdered phenibut recently and it came with this little scoop. I assumed it was a standard serving size (250mg) because it came with it and the package said the serving size is 250mg. I decided to contact the sellers after feeling no effects of 4 scoops. Turns out the scooper is only 6-10 mg per scoop! I don't have a scale other than one that weighs in pounds. How can I measure out grams in any other way without purchasing a scale? The package also says 1/4 of a teaspoon 1/2 and 1 teaspoon with the various mg, but I took about 1/2 teaspoon which is supposed to be about 800mg and I still felt nothing 4 hours later, without eating 2 hours before I took the phenibut.

I suffer from anxiety, PSTD and depression. It feels like one of my last hopes. The thing is I want to avoid heart disease.

Is there something I can do to verify I'm not causing any issues?

June 13, 2017

I'll just post here what I wrote to you privately, as it might help somebody else too here.

No worries, glad to help in this area, especially as it has helped me.

So, dosage: I bought myself a grinder (link below, but a coffee grinder works too), and with that I grinded my shrooms into very small pieces, but not into powder (only because I couldn't, the grinder was too coarse). Those I then measured with a precision scale to a dosage of 0.10-0.25g, and I took the dose every third day (the Fadiman method, so Monday dose, Tuesday and Wednesday no dose, Thursday dose, etc.). I found out that 0.10g was the sweet spot for not feeling anything and still getting the benefits, but then again I took 0.25g last Saturday, didn't feel a thing, but on Monday was having the time of my life.

Anxiety: So, before I started I had a severe fear of fucking up my heart with this, due to the exact same articles and links you posted in your Reddit-post. I was diagnosed with panic disorder on 2006, and one of the main reasons for this is the fact that I fear cardiac arrest like crazy. I'm in my early 30's and generally quite healthy, so I shouldn't have a reason for that, but I still do have the phobia, so that factored in big time when I started to think about doing this.

The first day I took the dose (0.21g), I mainly played some video games and didn't feel a thing, but I did feel a bit of anxiety due to the fact that I was expecting something happening in my body. The next day I felt awesome in many ways, but I still had the same anxious feelings and did get a very small panic attack when visiting my therapist. Luckily I have been able to talk openly about the microdosing, so when I got the panic attack I could explain very well what's going on in my head, after which the anxious feelings dropped significantly, so I'm quite certain they were in my head. I did get some more anxiety when doing a dose of 0.16-0.17g, but they most probably have also been in my head, as I didn't get any when doing 0.10g or when doing 0.25g.

When I got the anxious feelings the second time, I sent a mail to Dr. Fadiman, who replied that the elevated heart rate should not be due to the microdosing, as the dose is so low that there shouldn't be any physical effects. Then again, elevated heart rate is very much a symptom of anxiety, so it definitely might be that. The best advice I got for the anxiety is 1) to remember that there's nothing we can do about our irrational fears, other than face them, and 2) if you're feeling more anxious, skip one dose and see how you feel. In the material that Dr. Fadiman provides, he says that if you're feeling any ill effects, you should stop the microdosing, but don't let it scare you away from trying it in the first place.

My reasons for starting the microdosing were basically to try out something for the chronic depression I've had for the last 15 years. Anxiety, negative (EDIT: even suicidal) thoughts, inability to get stuff done or start doing things, issues with self image, bad self esteem, etc. have been there for ages, and only during this year I've been on 6 different medications for it, out of which venlafaxine helped with anxiety, but not with anything else. I've now taken 10 microdoses and I can definitely say that it did help me a lot! I hope that it will help you too.

First of all, I am getting sick and tired of my computer underlining kratom in red like I'm spelling it wrong.

I repeatedly see in posts how many of you are measuring out kratom in grams. How are you accurately measuring it? I assume you have a small scale? Can you recommend one if that is the case? Bonus points for an Amazon link.

Currently, I have a strain called Borneo Green that I bought in capsule form. I am taking 5 caps and breaking them open and mixing with a little juice. The amount seems to be working well for me. I am wondering how much I am taking compared to the rest of you since most of the sources I've read seem to agree that kratom rewards minimal usage. So, I'd like to get it measured out to know where I am at. I also figure that knowledge will come in handy when ordering other strains to experiment with.

As always, thanks for the advice, and most importantly, for the support.

I'm Experiencing Kratom Withdrawal - I think? [R]

2 years, 3 months agoVonFluffington posted submission on kratom.
May 3, 2017

Hey everyone, I'll keep this short.

I first took kratom around a year ago. Thought it was awesome, but didn't think of it too much. I have done different opiates in the past but I've never taken any for more than a couple days in a row and I've certainly never experienced withdrawal before. Right when I got out of college, I had a pretty nasty drinking habit. I would spend days so hungover and would look for anything to help ease the pain. Then I discovered kratom. Kratom would help with my hangovers so much, and that's why I started taking it, but I wouldn't take it any other days.

Fast forward to about 3 months ago. I have started taking kratom every day. It would help with everything. I would have no desire to drink or do any drugs. I haven't drank alcohol in months. I was sleeping better, life was grand. I have now been taking kratom every day for about 3 months. Kratom is the only substance I've been putting in my body. I don't know how much I take because I don't measure it, I just put a familiar amount on a piece of paper then fold it and toss and wash. If I had to guess, I would say I'm taking about 15 grams two to three times a day.

Here's where the problem comes in. If I don't take kratom, I start to experience what I think is withdrawal. It will happen about 8-10 hours after my last dose. I'll feel pain, and I'll get so unbelievably tired that all I want to do is sleep. I have no motivation to do anything. If I take kratom the symptoms will vanish almost immediately. But now it's like I have to take kratom just to feel "normal" again. I haven't gone 48 hours without taking kratom in the past 2-3 months and now I'm really concerned that I'm physically addicted. I really don't want to "need" kratom to get through my day.

Has anyone else experienced this? How long will the withdrawal last and will it get worse after a couple days?

IS THERE A GOOD WAY TO WEAN OFF KRATOM? I really don't want to need to take this stuff every day any more. I want my old life back where I was sober every day.

Anyone? Thoughts? Can anyone relate?

2 years, 3 months agoVonFluffington posted on kratom.
May 3, 2017

In my experience, any substance that can cause withdrawal symptoms should be tapered. No need to drive yourself crazy dropping it all at once, unless other factors force you to do so.

You can certainly try going down one gram a day or one gram a dose. Another method may be to try taking half a dose and see if it evens out the symptoms without giving you any other positive effects. You may be able to dial in an amount that gets you to your goal more quickly this way. In any situation, I’ve successfully tapered off of caffeine and nicotine with little ill-effect. I wasn’t so lucky when my prescription for tramadol (an insidious drug in my opinion) ran out and my doctor thought I would be ok cold turkey. Restless legs all night, switching between feeling far too hot then far too cold, no appetite but knowing I needed to eat; I got withdrawal symptoms like it was a job and it was sheer hell. So I know where you are coming from and feel for you man.

Take some advice on supplements from the others in the this thread, get yourself set up on a good taper schedule, and stick to it. You’ll be fine, just make sure you start weighing you powder. It can vary greatly in density, depending on grind and how it gets settled in a container. I’ve seen the same ½ teaspoon scoop give me anywhere from .5 grams on a super loose scoop to 2 grams on a tightly packed and heaping scoop. I’ve been rocking this little guy for as long as I can remember, but anything similar should be fine. https://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-Digital-Scale-sensitivity/dp/B0012LOQUQ

I've been using a food scale but it only weighs stuff down to the gram. It doesn't go any lower than that so I never know if I'm taking more than a gram like maybe 1.1-1.9 grams.

Do the majority of you bugs have scales for testing weight. If so what are some reliable brands out there along with things to watch for or stay away from? Do you really need to break the bank for a reliable scale?

Absolutely get a scale!

I bought a 600gm capacity American Weigh Scales (AWS). Nicely portable, works great, no problems after a year.

Depending on your needs, a better choice might be a lower-capacity scale. Greater sensitivity and presumably better accuracy.

Whichever scale you choose, for best accuracy get a calibration weight. A complete set of weights is best, but might be overkill. I use one 500gm weight to calibrate my 600gm scale.

Volume vs weight for "flavour" additions, and weighing very small weights? [R]

April 2, 2017

Hi!

Still a new brewer, on my 5th batch. 2 weighing questions:

  1. When reading recipes for flavour additions like tea, coffee, coriander, orange zest/peel, I tend to see everything in ounces. I assume people mean by weight, like with hops, but sometimes this means a very large volume of tea or dried orange peel, and I've seen people use units of volume (cups) for priming sugar. So: What's "standard?" Anyone here use a lot of spice and flavour additions that can weigh in?

  2. I've been playing around with Palmer's water calculators and trying to adjust mine for ideal beer style. However, my kitchen scale isn't accurate to "around a gram" weights and I'm leery of trying to measure out 1/3 of a tsp (that can't be accurate either, looking at the "balls" of calcium chloride). Anyone have tips for additions for 5-ga batches?

Materials made out of irregularly-shapes pieces (tea leaves, sugar crystals, anything that's ground) don't pack evenly into a volume, so you've got some amount of airspace that varies with the average size and irregularity of the particles and how exactly they're packed. This means that it's impossible to get a perfect measure of how stuff you actually have. Mass, on the other hand, won't change with how the particles are packed, so you know exactly how much of the stuff you have.

I use this scale, which works really well and was very cheap.

Dealer said this was a quarter ounce. I paid $50. Its really dank. Did i get ripped off? [R]

Ok giving kratom another go! [R]

2 years, 4 months agonakedz posted submission on kratom.
March 24, 2017

So after reading and researching lots I decided to try kratom to help with anxiety, substance tendencies, and to not use opiates. I ordered red vein Thai from herbal salvation (shout out! It arrived in 2 days and I got a little sample pack of something else!) and toss and washed around 4 grams last Saturday. I realize these are mistakes #1 and #2: not weighing correctly and toss and washing. I continued to cook dinner for my mom and sister and had a beer and 2 glasses of white wine. DEFINITELY mistake #3. I'm not much of a drinker anymore and shouldn't have mixed with kratom. Anyway, the evening went fine until about 5 hours later in the middle of the night and awoke with intense nausea and vomited and shit (sorry tmi) all night and into the morning. I threw up my whole dinner, water, and whatever else was inside of me. When I woke up I was weak for the whole day and my stomach was off for days. So I'm trying again. I used 1/2 teaspoon mixed in with some mildly warm mint tea. I took 2 antacids beforehand and plan on eating in about half an hour. I REALLY hope it goes well. Wish me luck!

Edit: Kratom not Keaton

You can get a scale to make sure you get the correct amount, I have one like below. But your dealer sold you trim, it will likely give you a buzz, but you should complain about not getting buds. Don't be sheepish about it. Don't be too bold making threats or anything. But confidently tell the dealer you know he ripped you off because there were no buds in the bag, just trim. He may offer you something he may not, but he'll know you know better. Don't deal with him again.

If you read farther up the thread, when he said "46.2 here" he meant that's the weight of his scale upside down. People were taking their scale, turning it upside down and posting the weight they got.

After he posts the weight, he proceeds to say that he wants a two-decimal scale because it's more accurate. The thing is, the scale he already has, the one he turned upside down to weigh is a .01 scale. So when he says he wants a two-decimal scale, he really means three-decimal scale, because he already has a two-decimal scale.

As for 46.2, if the measurement is exactly 46.20g, then you drop the zero because it's implied.

Edit: I see what you're saying. I assumed he had a .01 scale, given the context of this thread. At any rate, I know the difference between a .01 and .001 scale. Thanks for asking

I've already explained this several times. In this comment, OP reports the weight of this scale upside down as 46.2g. That scale is .01. Which means OP already has a two-decimal scale, so when he said he wanted a two decimal scale, he was actually referring to a .001, which is what I linked... He proceeds to have a conversation with me about it in the replies, if you're still in doubt. Please try to follow along next time.

Plenty of people need one. The person I specifically replied to asked for one... He said two decimal points, but given the fact that he already reported the weight of this scale upside down as 46.2g, that means he already has a .01 scale... That means he was actually asking for a .001 scale, which is exactly what I linked...

The definition of harder drugs is incredibly subjective too. If you measure anything in milligrams, you need a .001 scale. Thanks for chiming in though.

It very well could be. The density of weed depends on a lot of things, mostly how dry it is. Less dense weed may look like more but be 3.5 grams, just as more dense weed can look like less. My advice is to invest in a scale like this one. $11, durable, goes to the .01 gram, and closes to protect the sensitive weighing surface. I like to weigh when I buy (before smoking any) to be sure I got what I paid for, no matter how much I trust a dealer, and you can also keep track of your usage more efficiently.

If you really want to know weight you'll need a scale. Here's a good scale for $8. If you want to keep doing drugs maybe you should be able to dose them accurately. A 3.5g trip and a 5g trip is a HUGE difference. This looks like about 4-5g. Good luck!

I'm about to throw them all out, but in case there is any method to save these, I am asking here.

I used a recipe that called for 3g salt. Unfortunately I have discovered my food scale is very bad at measuring small gram changes so I probably put in way too much. I didn't taste-test before (dummy!).

I used almost a carton of both cream and eggs :'( Any ideas?

Also, any suggestions for a quality food scale that measures 1-gram increments appropriately? It will notice the weight when I add a bunch of stuff at once and is accurate, but it won't measure things like a tbsp. of flour or tsp of salt.

Thanks

Hey guys, a week or so ago I made a post asking some things about Kratom and I noted I have a heart deformity (floppy interventricular septum) I'm 3 days into kratom use and wanted to let it known how it's going.

Day 1: 1/2tsp Red Indo in the morning. Felt good throughout the day.

Day 2: 1/2tsp Green Bali in the morning. Felt good throughout the day.

Day 3(today): 1tsp of Red Thai. Felt good throughout the day; until the come down. I began to heavily sweat, and soon after came a heart rate of currently 104, im very anxious. My Dad helped me lay down. I'm writing this now to try and distract myself from the situation and regain myself. As I said in my original post, this was actually something I was worried about using Kratom BECAUSE of the deformity. Do you think it's because I went up half a teaspoon? Is it because of the strain? Or should I just stay away? Any insight would be great. My anxiety is going away as I calm down the write this.

EDIT: I'm reading now and I'm seeing that Thai's are generally a good thing to avoid if you have anxiety...oops..

She's sensitive, low tolerance and going for very light medicinal effects. She doesn't have typically have pain or use for pain, it's more of a mental boost thing i think.

There was someone recently that was suggested to get a scale. He posted back thanking everyone as his scoop (tsp) would vary as much as 2 grams either way ( https://www.reddit.com/r/kratom/comments/5ornjs/finallyboughta_scale/ ).

Hi all. I've posted in the comments some, but never really introduced myself. I'm a fairly new collector and grew up watching my dad collect as a kid. At this point in my life, I mostly collect PMs and /r/animefigures. I think they are both fun and interesting in their own way. I'm a back to school student, in the middle of nowhere, so mostly I buy online as the nearest LCS is a good distance away. Used to live in Houston, now in Hattiesburg, MS. Oh and I have trouble not sounding like an asshole when I type, so if it seems that way, it's likely not intentional.

Anyways, onto the topic of my post. I'm about to make an amazon order for some household supplies. To meet the $49+ shipping requirement, I figured I'd throw in things I should get in this field. Ex. scale with 2 decimals. Probably would add 1 or 2 things per order I do until I get everything needed.

Only problem is, I don't know what is recommended and the wiki loosely mentions tools of the trade. I have a r/BuyItForLife mindset for most things. Lastly, it would need to be shipped from Amazon or at least fullfilled by them. Please also note that if it would be better for it to come from somewhere else, I'm all ears.

So far, I know I want to get a flat clinch stapler. currently looking at this one, but sounds like its prone to breaking

Even a $10 gram scale from amazon with a calibration weight would detect most fakes. That plus a "ping" test for bullion coins can basically pick up any fake that's not made out of the exact same metal composition.

If you have $600 a sigma precious metals verifier would be almost impossible to fool in most cases, but that's probably outside of your and my budgets.

I have this and it is very accurate as long as you get a 100 gram calibration weight and just recalibrate it when it seems a tenth off or something. It's worked great for me and for that price I'm very happy.

As an example, when weighing known real coins it's usually within .05 grams assuming minimal variance from the mint spec of the coins, in my personal experiences.

At some point, you'll want some CAP Sugar Cookie. Other than that, some might recommend a scale rather than syringes. It will definitely pay for itself in terms of time and less stuff to clean.

This seems to be the scale of choice for most mixers.

I believe this is the one I use, cost less than $10. Only drawback is with the 100g capacity, I can't use my beakers, but it works fine for mixing 100mL or less in a plastic bottle.

I recently tried delsym 3oz and OHHH LAWWWWDDD THAT SHIT HAD ME ON MY ASS. I don't get why people don't try it more. i just steal the shit but I do know it can be expensive for those who don't like risking their freedom. for those who don't get that high off it? get two 8oz's and be atleast on third plateau for a whole day.

in my opinion delsym smashes every form of dxm there is. especially the grape. it tastes amazing and is easy on the stomach. why don't more people fuck with it?

also, I have no experience with taking powder but I heard its good too. you can also apparently extract powder from delsym (correct me if I'm wrong).

I was debating between two scales, this and this but figured the latter had better reviews. I did see that thread, and it did help reinforce my decision. Plus, I can probably use it to meal prep in the future since I can weigh up to 500g vs 100g.

Nice! I debated on buying the bigger sample pack, but figured the small one was safer in case I didn't actually like kratom. It's too bad that you have to pay for shipping, but I got my package very quickly, so I can't complain.

And yeah, the volume differences resulting from the different grinds can lead to differing densities. But in general one teaspoon of ANY grind other than gigantic blocky chunks should weigh somewhere between 2.3 and 2.7g, approximately...assuming that the substance is indeed kratom lol.

It doesn't deviate much as I've weighed over 100 strains and they are always close to 2.5g. It needs to be an even tsp though.

Third, and can confirm that it's a good, reliable scale. My brother has used one just like it for years.

If you want the same just with another decimal digit of accuracy, this is only slightly more expensive: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012LOQUQ

I have this coming in the mail tomorrow: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01JU4NY5Y so I can test it out and let you know how well it works if you're interested. Still pretty cheap at $11, accurate enough, and can weigh up to 3 kg.

The weight per tablespoon or any similar measurement depends on the density of the powder or how course or fine the grind is.

I've used scales like these since I started with kratom:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=cmswsu_dp

You can get them on Amazon or eBay, and I've never paid more than $10 for them. They are cheap, but if you keep them clean they last quite a while. Years even. I've never purchased a calibrating weight, rather just test the accuracy using something with a known weight, such as US coins:

Then use that info when you're weighing out dosages.

Sept. 16, 2016

My boyfriend and I are doing molly(both for the first time) at a music festival this weekend. I'm really nervous about doing drugs and especially something that isnt gradual like alcohol or smoking weed. Th form of molly I have is in tiny rocks/powder and it was given to me by a friend that didnt need it anymore because she moved. She tried it and said it was good pure so Im not worried about that. I just have a few questions: 1. What dosage should each of use take? I read the dosage link but I have no idea how to measure the substance out to those amounts. I am 130lb girl and hes is 160 lb. 2. How should we ingest the substance? I have been told everything from dissolving it in liquid to putting it in capsules and I would prefer something that wont hit me right away. 3. Any words of advice to calm my nerves? Im not sure why Im so nervous, I just dont want to have a bad experience as I feel my body is sensitive. Any other advice or encouragment would be great, thank you :)

Sept. 16, 2016

I would start with the sidebar links http://www.rollsafe.org/ and https://www.erowid.org as your primary source of reading. Now to your specific questions.

  1. I would recommend 100-125mg for you and 125-150mg for your bf. https://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-0-01g-Digital-Scale/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=sr12?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1474001857&sr=1-2&keywords=milligram+scale is a common one most people use.

  2. I would just take it in a gel capsule, will take 30 - 60 mins for it to kick in depending on individual. I would recommend taking the pill inside the festival so you can time it with the sets you want to see. Nothing worse than taking it right before and getting stuck in security line for 1 hr and start coming up.

  3. Just have an open mind, words cannot describe the feeling and you will know what i mean after this weekend. A few notes below to help you on your first time.

*Eat a light lunch and skip dinner. Having a full stomach not only will mess with timing but could also make you not peak at all.

*Remember to drink water but ALSO REMEMBER TO PEE!! MDMA is a vascular constrictor and you won't know when you want/need to pee. So make sure you pee a few times if its a long festival. Use the buddy system as in you go in port-a-potty first he waits right outside then he goes and you wait.

*Its common to throw up or feel overwhelmed during the come up (30-60 mins after dropping), don't worry you will feel better after throwing up and still have a great roll.

*During the come up/peak some people like to move others like to sit, try different things to better understand how your own body reacts to it.

*There is alot of advice on supplements the 3 key ones i recommend is magnesium pre (helps with jaw clenching) and 5-htp + green tea extract post to restore serotonin. Gum also helps so bring a back in, menthol cigs are amazing when your roll. (I only smoke when i roll)

Have fun and enjoy, pm me if you have any specific questions.

[Question] how can I get a better deal from my new dealer [R]

3 years agoSR_TEXAS posted submission on saplings.
Aug. 12, 2016

I just recently moved to Australia from Canada and got down to the process of finding a new dealer. After a while of searching I found someone and quickly set up a meeting. Ready to buy I met up with him and bought a 1/4 off him and he immediately asked for 100 dollars. This bothered me because I didn't expect it to be so expensive for such mediocre weed (he didn't even know the strain). So is there any way I can convince my dealer to give me better prices or is the price of weed in Australia really this expensive?

TL;DR new dealers prices are pretty expensive how can I get a better deal?

[Advice] How to talk to a dealer [R]

3 years, 1 month agoSR_TEXAS posted submission on saplings.
July 14, 2016

So pretty soon I'm gonna be making my first big purchase from my dealer (10Gs), and I don't really have a price established with him yet.

When discussing price with a dealer, I get pretty anxious because I don't know what questions are appropriate to ask and what aren't.

Should I let him know how much money I have and ask how much that'll get me? One time this is what I did ("I've got $40, how much weed will that get me?"), but the impression I got was that it was seen as a stupid question. Or should I start out by saying how much I'm going to buy, then say how much I've got? I've thought about just saying upfront how much I want and how much I will pay for it, but I think this could be seen as pushy, and I don't really want to do anything to damage our relationship.

I should point out that this person is not a close friend, and while I have no reason to distrust them I still worry that if I give them all the choice in the matter I may not get my money's worth. Do you guys have some rules to go by when talking to and buying from dealers?

EDIT: One more question I thought of - do prices scale? For example, I know my friend bought 8 grams from this guy for 80 bucks, so does that mean I should assume by default that 10 grams would be $100? Thanks!

Hello /r/Coffee I hope you guys are all fine and dandy!

I am completely new to the whole deal of making self brewed coffee and I believe too young to actually got to much knowledge (20) but im interested in cooking and baking, so I gave coffee a few deep thoughts and was overwelmed with how much things there is to know and to remember to make good coffee! I already enjoy the taste of it and I would LOVE to improve it even further (been drinking baaaaaaad coffee for a while and wanna quit that!)

I am looking to start making on pour coffee!

I still dont know what equipment to get. Are there good recommendations for beginner?

I want to grind coffee beans myself, I would enjoy doing it per hand since I believe that this will give me more "power" about the settings of a coffee, is that right? is it wrong? Should i do it? and if so, what grinders could be my thing? Do I need something fancy? I am just a beginner, I wouldnt mind spending like 200$/€ on the whole thing for equipment. But what to get?

I hope im not disturbing ur peace and quite!

My idea on what things to buy:

  • Kettle
  • Filters (Are they specific for the dripper?)
  • Dripper
  • Grinder
  • beans, duh

How do you add your brewing minerals? [R]

3 years, 3 months agoSpaceman_Spif posted submission on Homebrewing.
May 3, 2016

I add all my minerals (gypsum and calcium chloride) to the mash. Mostly to adjust for pH. In doing this the ppm of the mash is super high, 100-130 ppm for calcium, chloride and sulfate. After I sparge and the first and second runnings are combined the mineral ppm are in the correct range. Is it better to hit a certain mineral profile in the mash and then add lactic acid to further adjust pH and make the rest of the minerals up in the kettle? Is mashing with a high mineral ppm hurting the beer? I'm using RO water btw.

Thanks.

Edit: Strike and sparge water are both 14.6L for a 21L batch and the grain bill is usually 5kg. Mostly pale ales, ambers, brown porters and dry stouts. Method is MIAB.

3 years, 3 months agoSpaceman_Spif posted on Homebrewing.
May 6, 2016

To expand on what /u/plan_ahea said, the total amount of minerals will be about or less than 0.5 grams, so you'll want an accurate and precise scale to weight them out. 0.5 grams is the sum total, so individual measurements may be 0.1 grams or less. This scale or something similar is what you'll want.

I only say this because I got all my calculations done and minerals ready only to find out the scale I had wasn't to close to accurate enough.

[Question] Is this a gram?? It weighed 00g on my digital kitchen scale. [R]

So like the title says I'm 35 and i'm using this for pain relief and for ptsd. I have very little tolerance so far so at the moment after work i turn on a fresh loaded pax 2.0 and take like 3 hits at the 2nd setting then again about 3 hours latter i'll take 3 more on 2 and turn it up to the 3rd setting for another 2 or 3 hits then im set for the night.

Anyways I would really like to use my AVB by putting it into a empty vegetable pill I can buy my first quest is about dosing being im brand new to this and never ingested cannabis what dosing should i start with?

When im down with my 2 different times vaping at night I put all my ABV in a bag its usually mostly brown but there is still some green is that ok?

can anyways recommend a good scale for measuring the ABV content? my wife has a sale for food that does grams and we put some sugar on that to see how low it would go and it doesn't seem to work very well.

Have any of you ever had an issue with smoking or vaping cannabis and finding out your allergic to it? Its actually allergy season so it might just be a coincidence but about an hour after I vape feels like my throat tightens up a little bit and i feel a little stuffy. I know when I smoke cigarettes i have an allergic reaction.

thanks

I'm gonna take this in steps so I don't go way off topic and get confusing.

>I put all my ABV in a bag its usually mostly brown but there is still some green is that ok?

That's perfectly fine. As long as it isn't burned, the level of extraction you want is entirely up to you. Some people vape until it's nearly black, others vape until it's a golden brown and everything in between.

>my first quest is about dosing being im brand new to this and never ingested cannabis what dosing should i start with?

That's an impossible question to answer. ABV obviously isn't as potent as unvaped herb so you will need to eat a pretty decent amount but exactly how much depends on so many factors it's impossible to really give you a straight answer. My recommendation: Pick a day (or a few days) where you have nothing to do and start experimenting. I don't like the whole put em in a pill method. Make yourself some firecrackers or a pb&j sandwich or something.

>Have any of you ever had an issue with smoking or vaping cannabis and finding out your allergic to it?

That's never happened to me but there are people that are allergic to water so I wouldn't be surprised if people are allergic to cannabis. If you think that's the case I'd take it easy with the vaping until you're sure nothing will happen to you. Some people have very mild allergy symptoms so they act as if they aren't even allergic while others have very severe reactions. Until you're sure it isn't the latter just be careful.

It is alright that there is some green left, if you stir your oven in between the sessions it will help to more evenly vaporize your material. I would also suggest using the screen trick or pax pusher. I am a lightweight as well and shrinking the oven helps to increase the pax's efficiency.

Pipettes are used to measure by weight as they aren't very good for measureing out by volume, which you're trying to do.

A lot of people use this one as it doesn't have a auto off feature and comes with weights

I personally use this one as it does get the job done but doesn't come with calibration weights and has a auto two minute off feature.

Here's a guide to mixing by weight. It's stupid easy.

Can a cheap 100g or so digital scale be used as an upside down load cell?

I was hoping to measure upward pressure on a scale like this by mounting it upside-down. What issues are there with this?

For instance, I'm guessing having the gravity pull down on the plate, possibly even more if I mount something else to it, will cause the scale to be inaccurate. Could I counter this by placing something like rubber bands around it to the point that it registers some weight (to slightly overcompensate for the weight pulling down), then tare/zeroing it out?

Ideally I'm guessing that I'd use a load cell, amp, and interface, then mount a plate to the cell, to measure the force, but that's way more work and money than I would like to spend if I can avoid it.

I've tried doing research on this but I haven't found many people trying to flip mini scales upside down to act as upward force meters...

I'm new to Kratom. After a few days of taking lower dosages and feeling absolutely nothing, I decided to up my intake a few grams. ***BIG MISTAKE*** - Had a VERY hellish experience and now I'm confused and afraid of going anywhere near that high. What did I do wrong? [R]

The kratom I ordered came in a fine powder. I mixed it with apple sauce as I heard a lot of people do this, it minimized the awful taste and was easy to down.

>Just continue taking 4/5g at a time and wait like another week or 2 to see if you feel any effects. Kratom has different effects on everyone. Or maybe the stuff you got was just bogus kratom. Where'd you get ur kratom from?

I actually didn't know that it could sometimes have no effect, good to know. I ordered it from DivineShaman.com (heard lots of great things about them here and elsewhere). In all honesty I believe this was 100% my fault for taking so much, I really don't think it was bogus kratom.

Did that today. Ordered this which will measure to 1/100th of a gram.

Too much nutrient [R]

3 years, 4 months agozofoandrew posted submission on mead.
March 27, 2016

Short Version: added way to much go-ferm and fermaid o at the start and first nutrient additions. Plan to not add any more nutrients and wait it out.

Long version: This was my first attempt at TOSNA, also my first attempt at trying to be precise in my recipe. Today was the first fermaid o addition, 2.1g according to Batchbuildr which I rounded down to 2g. I placed my measuring cup on the scale and added fermaid o until the scale read 2g, then mixed in some must and added it back to the jug.

However, it took 5-6 heaping scoops with a 1/4tsp spoon to get that 2g reading, which seemed like a lot. I found one estimate of 4.7g to the tsp for fermaid K, so I'm pretty sure I added at least 6g. I think what happened is I used a glass measuring cup as my weighing/mixing vessel since it would be easier to sanitize than my plastic options, but it also weighs 511g itself and I think it was too much to expect of my kitchen scale to accurately detect 2 additional grams on top of it. Given that I did the same thing with go-ferm when I started the batch yesterday, my plan is to skip the remaining nutrient additions wait and see how it ends up. Are there any other options? Anything I should expect taste-wise from excess nutrient?

Water for Coffee: A comprehensive look [R]

3 years, 5 months agothe_bk posted submission on Coffee.
March 13, 2016

After seeing so many posts concerning water and its role in brewing coffee, I thought I would weigh in and try to provide some clarity on the subject. Nearly all of my knowledge on the subject is derived from Water for Coffee, an invaluable resource and well worth the price. I'll try to summarize the important and directly applicable parts of the book in a few paragraphs. All credit goes to Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood and Christopher H. Hendon.

Minerals and Hardness

Through research, the authors determined that only 3 minerals played overtly important roles in extraction: Calcium, Magnesium, and Bicarbonate. Many of you may have heard of total dissolved solids (TDS) of water. However, what TDS fails to account for is the specific composition. Instead, it is much more useful to to refer to the General Hardness (Magnesium and Calcium) and Carbonate Hardness. The authors have a range of hardnesses which they found produced the most balanced and expressive cup. General Hardness: 50-175 ppm and Carbonate Hardness: 40-75 ppm.

Recipe for Success

Unfortunately, the only way to insure that your water meets this profile is starting with a truly blank slate by getting deionized water and adding the minerals mentioned above. Otherwise, without some advanced laboratory equipment to determine the mineral make-up of your water, you are completely in the dark, relying purely on your subjective experience.

So, given all this information, let's translate that into something that you can use at home. I have two different recipes that are easily made. I make 2L batches at a time, but you can scale this up or down depending on the size of the container you are using (I use a 2L beer growler for ease of use). There is plenty of math to support these recipes, but I would rather not get bogged down in the details. All of the minerals can be acquired from Amazon, and at the amount we'll be using them, will last a very, very long time, so the cost is negligible.

What you'll need:

-Potasssium Bicarbonate

-Magnesium Chloride

-Calcium Sulfate

-Deionized Water

Recipe 1

-Potasssium Bicarbonate @ 0.1g/L

-Magnesium Chloride @ 0.5g/L

-Calcium Sulfate @ 0.4g/L

Recipe 2

-Potasssium Bicarbonate @ 0.1g/L

-Magnesium Chloride @ 0.6g/L

-Calcium Sulfate @ 0.3g/L

Feb. 4, 2016

Spot on. I'll just expand on some of these points.

A .01g scale, like this, will work fine but I'd highly recommend you get a .001g scale, like this, if you're not really tight on money. It will be necessary if you decide to use other great substances like 2C-B in the future.

I'm not aware of any degradation issues with MDMA in any normal environment. It's not like LSD in that regard. It won't smell.

For consumption, I'd personally recommend paying the $5 or less it takes to buy some empty capsules locally. I think I normally use "00" size as it's large enough that it's easy to dose out the crystal/powder in. But that way you don't have to worry about the terrible salty taste. Even parachuting I sometimes get it stuck in the back of my throat and it sucks. And I haven't noticed a large difference in come-up time with it capsuled. If you parachute it or whatever you don't need to crush it. Just throw it in some tissue, roll it up and swallow.

Magnesium is a must. Especially when you're just first trying MDMA out you don't need to worry about most of the supplements. But magnesium will drastically reduce the gurning so you don't get a sore jaw or a chewed up face. You'll still want gum or candy you can suck on though. To your other question, how often you dose likely makes more difference in the long-term than whether you're supplementing but we need more research. Everyone reacts differently to MDMA with regard to the short-term after-effects. I've never had anything remotely resembling a "suicide Tuesday" supplements or not, but I've never had an afterglow either. You'll just have to see.

Dosage Too Low? [R]

3 years, 7 months agoWeAreTheBoys posted submission on MDMA.
Dec. 27, 2015

So I'm Male, late 20s, and 190 lbs. I took MDMA (tested, so sure there's MDMA). ~75g at 530, and another half of that around 830.

I don't think I felt it. I guess dosage was too low? But shouldn't I feel something after redoing? It's my first time.

Also, my friend had a weird reaction. She's done it before but I think high dosages. This time, she did about 75g. She smoked weed before dropping. She's around same age and weighs probably 120lbs. She felt nice when it kicked in but crashed after. We had to sit down since she was just very sleepy.

Is the dosage too high? I briefly read somewhere that low dosages may sometimes make people very sleepy. She did eventually liven up a bit though. Any advice? Specifically for me since I plan to roll again tomorrow.

Note: I took pre supplements from that MDMA Supplementation thread. Nothing after drop though. Not till 6 hours later though which is the NaLaRa one.

Best scale for mineral additions? [R]

Hey guys, what scales do you typically use for mineral additions? I have a shitty ~$10 model I got off amazon that likes to jump as much as .5g as I add small amounts of minerals, and I think it has led to some of my pH calculations being off. I'd like to correct that as much as possible, so what scales have you found to be both accurate and reliable for quite some time?

Relevant story:

I work in a college town. I'm a master's student part time and help teach classes every now and then, so I'm on campus pretty often. One day, I'm on the phone with my SO and get pulled over for being on my phone.

I was in the wrong. I get it.

So the officer comes up, asks me the standard questions, asks if I have any weapons in the vehicle, and has me sit there.

Two more cop cars pull around the corner, boxing my car in.

Another cop comes up, asks me to step out of the car. I do.

They take me behind another cop car so my car is out of view, and the first officer says to me "I noticed a precision scale in your back seat. What is that used for?"

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is the day my FOID card and shitty precision scale got me mistaken for a violent drug dealer who drives the same car as me.

Is this cheap setup good? [R]

3 years, 9 months agonerdoldnerdith posted submission on Coffee.
Oct. 25, 2015

I drink coffee more as a utility item rather than a luxury, so I'm curious if my setup is the best setup for those purposes. When I think of utilizing coffee as a drink, its for an energy boost more than the taste, and I believe that eating the actual beans will be even better than brewing it for health and cost reasons. Does anyone here just eat the coffee beans by themselves?

I have a delonghi EC155 (not well liked around here) and I buy a cheap $3 cafe bustelo and make a fake foamy espresso that tastes better than starbucks. I don't see a point to depressurizing it since I don't use a high quality coffee, and I like the fake foam, and its good enough to drink black.

Still, I wonder what the joys of good coffee are. What do I miss by not buying good coffee beans, grinding them myself with a burr grinder, making a real crema and tasting what a 'real coffee' should taste like? It is a luxury item to you guys?

If you're just into coffee for the cheap caffeine, then buy some caffeine. If you buy in sufficient quantities, a single 200mg dose is equivalent to a strong cup of coffee and costs less than a cent. Here is some cheap caffeine. You can either cap it (which requires a centigram scale, capsule machine, and gelatin capsules), dose it every time (requiring a centigram scale), or create a solution (which requires at least a decigram scale).

You could also just buy some caffeine pills at $0.04 per pill.

In any case, you're talking about a drug that's nearly free when you just buy it straight.

Oct. 22, 2015

I've been brewing with malt kits for years and the results are a little unpredictable I mean they are ok drinkable but I'd like more control over my batches.

I've read about the 1 gallon method and it got me excited. The trouble is now I'm thinking about it I have no idea where the best place to start with a recipe.

I'm guessing it would be a traditional ipa but id like do take a more cost conscious route for my first few batches.

Advice, suggestions and simple recipes would be great.

3 years, 10 months agopricelessbrew posted on Homebrewing.
Oct. 22, 2015

Find whatever recipe you like, then scale it down. Ingredients follow linearly, so 1G batch size would use 1/5 the ratio. 10 lb= 2 lb. etc etc.

WATER DOES NOT SCALE. Use software/calculators to determine your volumes and temps for your specific equipment and process. I use my own Priceless' BiabCalc

I would recommend finding a simple recipe with minimal crystal malts. Go for a simple stout recipe, or a SMASH pale ale to learn about hop profiles.

I did 5 gallons for about 2.5 years, and just started doing .75-1.5G BIAB batches. I highly recommend figuring out a smooth bottling routine, and getting a high accuracy scale. Measuring out hop additions with a 1g scale just doesn't cut it. I ordered this scale and it's been working great so far. Accurate, came calibrated (confirmed with 6 different 15g weights)

3 years, 10 months agoJenGarden posted submission on quittingkratom.
Oct. 19, 2015

I really want to quit kratom. My dilemma is the timing. If I have to - I will check back with this board in seven months when I am REALLY planning to quit. I don't want to waste people's time here. But, I want your opinions and advice, if you care to share.

Beginning on Memorial Day 2016, I will have six weeks completely free from work. I can relax and check out for the duration of acute withdrawal and have time to get my energy back. I will have time for short walks, the weather will be nicer, I can get a massage when I need one, I can go to the gym, use the sauna. Sounds nice? Rehab in the comfort of my home, but without the $30,000 price tag.

I was planning to taper now and be finished around Christmas, but after reading every quitting story I can find, I realize it may be a very long, uncomfortable situation. A taper might work, but it might be 8 weeks of tapering misery followed by a month of acute withdrawing anyway. I could try C/T, I have the will power and when I don't have work responsibilities, I can stay up and watch Hulu, Netfix, Amazon or even informercials. Insomnia might be a terrible symptom, but I can manage when I don't have to be at work the next day. My job has never as stressful as it is this year. Everyone is feeling it. Tensions at work have been high.

I did c/t from norco once and while it sucked, I just did it. I went back to norco because my condition flared up again. Not looking forward to acute opiate withdrawal again, I found out about Kratom. My bad luck! I would have been better off with just one drug leaving my system and 5 days of pain (and 5 more of unpleasant, but manageable symptoms)

My hair is falling out, too!! You would think that side effect alone would get me to quit immediately. But, I am miserable 8-10 hours after my last dose and I always have work just around the corner. So I cave. K still helps me, but I don't like the feeling of dependence.

One last problem. I got worried a few months back (before my hair stated falling out!) that this "miracle plant" would soon be banned by the DEA. I bought large quantities. I mean, I have A LOT of reserve kratom.

I use between 20 and 40 grams a day. That is too high, I know. When I first heard about Kratom for opiate withdrawal, that was what was recommended. I feel really stupid for getting mixed up with this. sigh

I want to make it onto the achievement board...100 ++ days off Kratom. I want to help people. I want a successful quitting narrative. I just feel like I have to wait until I have time. If I wait, what risks am I facing? Instead of eight months of use, it will be fifteen. :(. Will I be bald?

I did have my blood work done three months after starting to use 2-4 times daily and everything was fine. Lab readings were great. My blood pressure was a little higher than normal, but nothing the doctor was concerned about. At my check up one month ago it was still high. Kratom causes high BP?

So many concerns, but I can't stop - just yet. Do people set their quit dates out seven months into the future? That sounded really lame.

So I'll start with the standard 'I'm new at this so.... ' and I'm sure you guys are bored of these kinds of posts but I'd really value your opinions. This is my first diy order, what do you think, am i missing anything or anything you wouldn't bother with. Thanks in advance. All TFA flavors, All 5ml,

Cream de Menthe, Strawberry ripe, Green apple, Jamaica rum, DX Peanut butter, French vanilla, Cheesecake, Cappuccino, Cotton candy, DX Bavarian cream, Dragon fruit, Double chocolate, Toasted almond, Blueberry extra, Black cherry, Cubano type cigar,

Plus- VG 260ML. PG 260ML, NICOTINE 30ML/36MG(aiming for 3mg),

Syringes 10ml x2, 5ml x2, 1ml x2,

Breakers 150ml, 50ml, 20ml,

Oct. 7, 2015

I think your first order is magnitudes better than the rest of the shitposts we've been getting all day.

Also, get rid of the cheesecake, it tastes like warm milky vomit. That's not an exaggeration. Replace it with TFA strawberry, it's a wonderful flavor and a great tool for making mixes taste better.

Drop double chocolate, you aren't ready for the amount of disappointment that chocolate flavors carry. Not yet. Replace it with TFA Sweet Cream, it's a magical blank-slate cream that you can make into anything you want(even a cheesecake flavor since you're dropping the one you have on the list.)

Cotton Candy is just a sweetener(literally just 10% Ethyl Maltol), if you want a cotton candy flavor buy the circus type. Even then, cotton candy doesn't translate to e-juice well, and the flavor isn't all that impressive. Replace it with double kiwi or maybe apricot. Both wonderful flavors.

Toasted almond is alright, but it's the worst of the vapeable almond flavors. I'd save that for your next order, buy INW or FA almond. I'd suggest toasted marshmallow or marshmallow in its place, they go well with the other flavors you have, and give a nice mouthfeel to juices.

Replace every DX flavor with the regular one. Diacetyl/Acetoin deserve respect and are very delicious. You'll seldom find a recipe containing DX(or V2 CAP flavors) here, as we don't really fear diacetyl since we know it's almost impossible to avoid.(all your favorite flavors likely contain DA/AP/A, that's why they're your favorite flavors.)

Also, take the money you're spending on syringes and beakers and droppers, and buy a scale. It's much less frustrating, and easier to get into the hobby when you don't have to clean everything. This one is $9 and works fine for any plastic bottles up to 50mL. It does have auto-shutoff, but it won't shutoff while you're adding a flavor, just when the scale hasn't changed in 90 seconds or some shit. It's the scale I started out with. Otherwise, the one in the sidebar is the best scale for our purposes. After you get the scale, get a $4 100 pack of 3mL disposable pipettes, since orders straight from TFA come in glass vials and not dropper bottles.(bullcity and ECX sell all flavors in plastic dropper bottles, super convenient.)

Like others have mentioned - the precision statistic on the scale you posted is what's going to negatively affect you the most. Being off by .05 will make a difference in some smaller batch recipes and when you get up to 200g+ you may be off by nearly a whole gram.

I got this one for mixing on the go: AWS 100. But it only goes to 100g and doesn't have the bells and whistles like no auto-shutoff or calibration weights. I wouldn't suggest this one though if you're planning on mixing large batches. It's mostly just so I can mix a few 30ml bottles quickly.

Unfortunately with scales, you get what you pay for. Most people here suggest the [AWS LB-501] (http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-Scales-LB-501-Digital/dp/B005UGBG20/ref=sr11?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1443729839&sr=1-1&keywords=american+weigh+scale+bowl) because it covers all the bases.

I got this one. It works well as far as I can tell.

I also got these calipers. They work well and are very accurate but the battery has to be taken out after use so it doesn't drain (at least on mine). There are also much cheaper nondigital versions.

Also if you don't already have them I suggest you get a cheap magnifying glass or loupe and a good magnet.

[Question]Scale Help [R]

I recently purchased a scale and the first day it seemed to be working. Second day in its numbers fluctuate without any weight on it, as well as reading negative numbers. It also seems to be extremely sensitive, as a nickel will way around 500 g. I cant find any guides on how to solve this, please help.

If a nickel reads out 5.0 grams on the scale, then there's nothing wrong with it. Just check that it's still accurate every once in a while and you'll be fine.

If all else fails, just order a AWS-100. It's the best goddamn scale you can get for less than $15, and it's accurate to 0.01 grams. You can get it here

> Accuracy: 0.1 gram

If you are making batches of ~500ml this scale would be just fine. If you are mixing anything smaller, you need a scale that measures to 0.01 grams.

If you are only mixing small batches (<50ml) then this scale is probably the best value out there.

If you intend to mix 5-250ml batches then you will likely want to stick to this scale

I'm struggling to understand water chemistry - can anyone help? [R]

I've tried to figure out the Bru'n Water spreadsheet a few times. I don't know why, but I just don't get it.

I'd really like to work on my water profiling, but I'm lost.

  • Does the water profile depend on the style of beer? Or grain bill, specifically? It seems like it, but I've also heard about adjusting water based on the yeast being used?
  • I don't want to replicate the water profile from some location - I'm just trying to make the right water for what I'm brewing.
  • Is there a way to input grain bill & yeast and just say 'OK, starting from distilled water, what I need to add is xxx and yyy.'
  • What equipment do I need, if I were to use distilled water? A pH meter, it seems. Anything else?

Any water gurus out there have advice on how to get a leg up into water profiles?


Thanks for the answers and resources!

  • Sort of. First you need enough Ca in the water. It's an important co-factor. Then look at your SO4 to Cl ratio. More SO4, more dry, bitter enhancing flavors. More Cl, more sweet, malt enhancing flavors. Adjust as required to your tastes. Now adjust pH with an acid to hit your ideal mash pH. I know it seems like a lot, but just play with the sheet and read EVERYTHING on there. All the notes will really help you wrap your head around it. I promise if you play with it long enough, it will click.
  • Correct.
  • Not with Brun Water.
  • pH meter and a really tiny scale like this one to measure brewing salts. That's about it.

The LEE Safety Powder Scale is worse than I could ever imagine [R]

4 years agoLpokie posted submission on reloading.
July 24, 2015

So, a little background. When I was a kid my dad reloaded quite a bit. We had a variety of guns and being the eternal cheap-skate, my old man was all about reloading. We did lots of pistol ammo and some other neat things like turning .303 brit cases into .410 shotshells and we have a .30-30 AI that was pretty neat. At any rate, we both got busy in life and I moved away. Recently though, I've decided to get back into it and since I had absolutely nothing, I ordered the Lee Breech Lock Challenger kit off of Amazon. It had most things I need and a few things I didn't, this scale being one of them. I unboxed the goodies and played with them a little bit and I have got to tell you folks, the "safety scale" is the biggest piece of shit I have ever seen. I literally cannot zero the damn thing as it comes out of the box. The thumb-nut that you use to calibrate it is extended as far as it will go and my needle is nowhere close to 0. I'd have to shave plastic off the beam or somehow add weight to the pan to make this thing work. It just totally blows my mind that something can come out of the box and be so fucked up that it can't work at all.

And this doesn't surprise me terribly. I had heard bad things about it, but I had no idea it would be this shitty. I was just expecting something that was hard to read and slow to operate, not a complete and utter disaster out of the gate. I was going to get a digital scale anyway, but I thought this would make a good backup tool. I thought wrong...

TL;DR: This scale is a piece of shit. Cannot get it to zero right out of the box.

Mazers! Question About Nutrients [R]

July 22, 2015

I just received my first 60 lb bucket of California Orange Blossom in the mail yesterday, and I'm gearing up for some serious "mazing".

I'd like to start out with doing 10 or more one gallon test batches so I can have many meads going on at a time, but I'm worried that my scale isn't quite accurate enough to measure such small amounts of DAP and Fermaid K. My solution (pun intended) is to measure out the portions I would for a full 5 gallon, re-hydrate the DAP and K, and then portion the solutions out by volume instead of by mass.

My questions: A) Is there a better way to measure nutrients for a 1 gal (My scale goes down to 1 gram increments)? B) How long can I store re-hydrated DAP and Fermaid-K?

P.S. Mazing day album to follow...

You aren't rehydrating it; you're just dissolving it in a solution.

If you don't have $11, this should more-or-less work.

> A) Is there a better way to measure nutrients for a 1 gal (My scale goes down to 1 gram increments)?

$11. You dropped $200 on honey. You're serious. Give it every chance to turn out awesome.

I would not attempt to store this at all.

Its hard to get much bigger than that with the same accuracy without going lab grade but if you search you might find something. Post office scales are def bigger but I dont think accurate to 0.01g (I think 0.1g).

Generally for larger you want to look into non-portable scales (tabletop or desktop scales), but unfortunately these increase in price quickly

I actually just bought a different version of the one you used to have: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012LOQUQ

I've been happy with it so far, though it's only been a couple weeks.

This one only goes up to 100g instead of 1000g, and it has a more precise display: 0.01g instead of 0.1g. I think this one is better suited for weighing tea, since you shouldn't need to weigh more than 100g at a time.

[Updated Repost] Using Stem and Vein to reduce the severity of Kratom withdrawal [R]

4 years, 1 month agoJune 25, 2015

Using Stem and Vein to reduce the severity of Kratom withdrawal; A case report.

Many people here prefer quitting kratom "cold turkey" and there are a number of reasons why. It's a great way to go for many people. For others, it's not an option but we seem to be the minority. As a result there just isn't a lot of information on using Stem and Vein to taper off. This report is to detail my process so other people can benefit from it.

Summary: "Stem and Vein" Kratom powder has been reported to reduce tolerance and withdrawal severity in regular users. When I was unsuccessful quitting "cold turkey", I looked into it and developed a tapering strategy modeled after the Ashton Manual for Benzodiazepine withdrawal. I would switch to a blend that would reduce tolerance while tapering, and give it up when tapering was more unpleasant than stopping altogether. (The habit didn't form overnight, it formed over about a month. It seemed reasonable that reversing the process over a month would make it easier.)

I started at 7-8g red bali powdered kratom per day in 3 doses. I had been at this dose for five months. I had previous opiate tolerance from a surgery. (oxycodone)

Results: The taper procedure took four weeks, but when it was finished the withdrawal was easily manageable with SAM-e and a couple of days of loperamide.

Procedure: What I did was gradually substitute stem and vein into my normal dose at about a ratio of 25% S&V/ 75% Red Bali. (Theoretically any type would be fine.) When that ran out, I switched to a 50/50 blend, then 75/25 was my final blend before I stopped entirely. I threw away all my other kratom, and just bought what I needed to start out. 2 oz red bali and 1 oz stem and vein, I mixed 1.5oz of red bali with 0.5 oz Stem and vein, then mixed the leftover 0.5 oz of both into an ounce of 50/50. Later I bought 10g of red bali from a headshop and mixed it with 1 oz of stem and vein to make an ounce of 75/25 (73/27 actually but close enough.) I didn't want any pure red bali to tempt me to cheat. It worked out pretty well. Each time I made a cut in dosage it was by 20%. The plan was to make cuts were 3-4 days apart depending on how "well" I felt on the third day. I was on 7-8g a day, 2.5g in the morning and afternoon and 2-3g in the evening.

First observation: Taking 7g of the 25/75 mix felt subjectively stronger than 7g by itself. It felt closer to the few times I took up to 10g. Day two I went down to 2g in the morning and afternoon and 1.5g in the evening with no issues.

Reductions:

Cut 1. Then 2.4g in the morning, 2.4g in the afternoon, 0.8g in the evening.

Cut 2. Then I gave up the evening dose and started taking the afternoon dose after work.

Cut 3. Then I switched to 50/50 for a few days staying at that dose.

Cut 4. A few days later 1.9g in the morning, 1.9g in the afternoon.

Cut 5. I stalled here for a week because of personal stuff going on, but I switched to 75/25 to make some progress.

Cut 6. A few days later 1.5g in the morning, 1.5g in the afternoon.

Cut 7. Then 1.2g in the morning, 1.2g in the afternoon. This is where it got harder.

I pushed one more step down to 0.9g in the morning and afternoon but that was probably worse than just quitting. After a couple of days, I just gave it up. It felt worse to have just that little dose then to just let it go.

Withdrawals:

Day 1. Took 400 mg SAM-e, 400mg ibuprofen. Aware of withdrawals but mostly comfortable. SAM-e was a huge help. I woke up early feeling depressed and anxious. I took the SAM-e and rested on the couch and watched something funny on Netflix. About 30-45 minutes later I was feeling a lot more normal. I made breakfast and got ready for work. Took another 200mg dose of both an hour after lunch. Exercised 45 minutes on an exercise bike in the evening. Smoked marijuana to get to sleep and had no problem with restless legs.

Day 2. Took 400 mg SAM-e, 400mg ibuprofen. 81mg Quinine, 12mg loperamide. Aware of withdrawals but more comfortable than day 1. The second day I drank 1 liter of generic tonic water and took about 12mg immodium after work. (Tonic water contains Quinine, which is a mild PGP-inhibitor. It might help immodium be more effective for the psych effects of w/d, but I couldn't tell for sure.) Otherwise the day was pretty much the same as day 1.

Day 3. Took 400 mg SAM-e, 400mg ibuprofen. 81mg Quinine, 10mg loperamide. Feeling normal. I kept exercising and found a few yoga poses that helped when stress was getting tough.

Day 4. Took 400 mg SAM-e, 400mg ibuprofen. Feeling normal again, and I stopped smoking marijuana to get to sleep. (I started again during week 2, high CBD marijuana seems to be helpful with the RLS.)

I kept exercising and found that music really helped. I love dancing and it was a great attitude adjuster! I have continued taking SAM-e to treat the general depression that led me to take kratom to begin with.

It was a 3-4 week process, but at the end the withdrawal was minimal compared to cold turkey. I felt pretty much back to normal in about 3 days.

Hopefully that helps!

Update 6/25

At nearly 30 days off Kratom it seems that even with a taper with Stem and Vein didn't protect me from PWS symptoms.

Physical withdrawals like joint ache were minimal and staying off was relatively easy except from a slip-up at day 6 with 2.5g of the 75/25 blend. Physical w/d had subsided by day 3, but it seems the depression and anxiety effects peak later.

(My partner was keeping watch over it in a combination safe in case withdrawal significantly impacted my work. She goes to school full time, I am our sole income source and go to school part time. I don't recommend this, I have been pretty aware the whole time that it's there. It'd be easier to keep it out of mind if it were out of the house.)

I would say SAMe has been a great help dealing with the depression from the withdrawal. Every morning I've woken up depressed... less so every day, but taking SAMe first thing I wake up and watching something funny on TV until it kicked in has reliably helped a lot!

I ended up upping the dose to a peak of 800mg in 2 doses, scaling back to 400mg today with no withdrawal or other problems though. :) I added Ashwaganda during week 2 as a substitute for the Phenibut I was taking during week 1. Phenibut is just overkill after the initial peak of anxiety, and addictive itself.

Exercise and meditation have been a huge help! Exercise, 45 minutes or more every day after work on an exercise bike. Meditation, 10 minutes in the morning, 20-30 minutes in the evening.

Meditation helps take you out of your head for a bit, and helps you keep perspective. Exercise produces endorphins, improves your energy and helps prevent RLS sometimes. Don't forget to stretch your legs and/or arms afterward!

Even with all this, it hasn't been an easy process. It wasn't as tough as quitting cold turkey, but it does appear that the depression and anxiety are still a factor. However, SAMe and Ashwagandha have done an excellent job combating them.

I added L-Tyrosine and epsom salts to the regimen as of last night to help with evening fatigue, so it's easier to exercise when all I want to do is a face-plant on the bed and turn on Netflix. ;) Next update I'll report on how well this goes.

I hope this helps some of you!

> Where did you get yours? How do you actually measure? I actually have no idea how many grams I am even taking. Did you premix your dosages?

I got it from Kratom Trading Co. It's pretty inexpensive :)

I also got a cheap digital scale. It doesn't need to be that fancy, one like this should work. It's $10 and eligible for Prime if you have it! You could also use a food scale if you have one.

What I did was premix the bags themselves together in jars. I bought 1 ounce of Stem and Vein and 2 ounces of red bali to make the first two blends.

The first one: I started with 1/2 oz stem and vein (14 grams) and 1 1/2 oz red bali (my preference, 52g). That makes 2 ounces of a 75/25 mix.

Then I mixed another jar with the left over 1/2 ounce of Stem and Vein and the 1/2 ounce of leftover red bali. That made a 1 ounce bag of 50/50 mix.

I mixed them together so I didn't have any pure red bali to tempt myself. :) I hope this helps!

>Be sure to use a scale that has a high level of accuracy, such as this one (it’s the one we use).

What I get from this article is that teforia does not use a Legal for Trade scale, and - as they are based in San Francisco - should be reported to California's Dept. of Measurement Standards.

http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/dms/http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/dms/complaint.htmlhttp://www.nist.gov/customcf/getpdf.cfm?pubid=917300

Essentially, any business selling product based on weight is subject to regulation by their respective Weights and Measures regulating body. Scales are either "Legal for Trade" or "NOT Legal for Trade" based on things like their method of measurement and accuracy.

For example, Whole Foods was recently involved in a scandal based on incorrect Weights and Measures - in this case, it was weights and measurements enforcement regarding false advertising due to poor proceedures / inaccureately calibrated scales rather than using NOT Legal for Trade scales, but you can see that Dept. of Weights and Measures violations are taken quite seriously, at least in California.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/24/whole-foods-overcharging-overpricingn5527255.html

The fact of the matter is, the majority of Mom and Pop online tea businesses are probably guilty of the same thing. Unless the shop applies for licensing with their city / county, etc (which they should, as they are handling a food product), or unless they have some sort of store front where they make physical sales direct to customers, there is no way for Weights and Measures to find these shops and regulate them.

Some people might say: so what? LFT scales are really expensive! This is an example of Big Government hurting small businesses by saddling them with unreasonable and unnecessarily expensive requirements. This is certainly up for discussion. However, the laws are in place to protect the consumer: in this case, to make sure you get what you pay for. In the point of view of weights and measures, if you pay for 1 oz of loose leaf tea, you should obviously receive an accurate 1 oz of tea. That oz has to be correct within a certain margin of error, and only Legal for Trade scales are certified (guaranteed) to operate within those margins.

TL;DR - teforia does not use a Legal for Trade scale. Because they are not using a commercial scale, teforia cannot guarantee you will receive the qty of tea you purchase.

edit.. although the downside is that it only weighs to 100 grams. But the sensitivity is nice, although with kratom, being +- 0.1 isn't that bad. So yeah I fully recommend anyone get a $10 or so digital scale. Don't go to novelty shops though, because they sell scales like this for $40 to $100+. God I hate those places.

I know this may be out of place but i've looked over at the DIY section already and it's just confusing and seems like there is so much i need to get started, i enjoy premium juice and order my favorites like everyone else, but recently i've gotten to where i'd like to actually make my own and can never really commit... So i'm here asking for help. If any of you could maybe link me to some starter gear and places for nic and flavoring, as well as base liquids to start with it'd be a great help and i'd appreciate it so much!!

No problem! Another thing I would suggest is mixing by weight. It will let you mix a bit more accurately. I have 2 of these and it works great. Look around a bit and you might find it cheaper than $10. It was $5 when I bought it, but prices fluctuate and stuff. Anyway, it works great for small batches at a time. Like, I put VG, PG, and nic into squirty bottles to put into the juice and just use pipettes for the big bulk flavoring bottles.

That's another thing, you can get things like lab equipment (pipettes, syringes, etc) a lot cheaper on amazon than on the eliquid sites. So keep that in mind.

Help with tracking force and anti-skating settings for my TT/cart. Or teach my why it's not so simple as to just ask. [R]

I have a Luxman PD264 with a Grado Prestige Red cart. I would lake to confirm the tracking force setting of 1.5 on the counterweight dial. The anti-skating should be at this same value setting? Or is it that other factors are considered when arriving on this setting value that can't be known with the little info provided here? My noobness is certainly evident here. VinylEngine page for PD264.

Tracking force is based on cartridge not turntable.

You are fine at 1.5 VTF. And yes, antiskate should be about the same or maybe a little less.

From Grado website:

> GRADO'S PRESTIGE SERIES OF PHONO CARTRIDGES The Prestige series of cartridges are designed for tracking forces from 1-2 grams.

But it's really best to use a digital scale to get the exact weight. The counterweights on TTs are not to be trusted.

I personally lean towards the higher side of the suggested tracking force, so I would try 1.75 and see how that sounds. Usually helps with bass response.

Carrying a food scale? [R]

So during the year I eat in a cafeteria. It suddenly just occurred to me that I could get a small food scale to take to the cafeteria because the university supplies nutrition information by serving size (but I've never been able to verify serving size accurately when the spoon it out).

I guess this might be a dumb thing to worry about but I don't want to appear to be "obsessive" about food. I think I'm very positive about how I look but I want to be more precise to drop some BF%.

Thoughts?

See, I was thinking of portability so something like this because it would fit in my purse. But sure, if you're going to carry one of the big food scales, I don't think anyone will think you're a drug dealer.

Found a Dual 1225 - worth refurbishing? [R]

4 years, 4 months agoisthishandletaken posted submission on vinyl.
April 6, 2015

Hello, first time coming here and my reason is that I recently found a Dual 1225 in the basement of my grandparents and I am actually planning on getting a cheap-ish "second hand" setup to see if I like vinyl enough to get into it deeper. I already have a few vinyl's laying around and I would love to test it out.

I already read a bit in the guides in the sidebar and I understand what kind of equipment I need but still have no clue about the technical side of things.

Now I've got the turntable part down but it looks a bit beat up and I am wondering if it is worth buying new parts for the 1225 or if it's actually cheaper to get another turntable. The needle looks bent and the platter (?) has scratches and marks, but I think that is only a cover that I can replace? I was able to peel it off a bit but I left it on for now.

If I would buy a new cartridge and needle and everything, what should I get? I am really not sure what parts are compatible and where I should look for those.

I included some pictures of it. They may be a little shaky because I had terrible lighting and no tripod at hand, but I hope it will do.

Right here!

I hope you can help me out!

April 7, 2015

Awesome. Glad to hear it. Before you get the needle, take some time to watch videos on youtube about setting up a turntable. You'll need to know about setting VTF vertical tracking force (setting the weight on the back of the arm), anti skate (setting the dial to the right of the arm), and cartridge alignment (this is the hardest part, but it is important... the cart is already in the headshell so it may be aligned already). You should also order one of these while your at it. This will help you set the VTF very easily.

I would give this one a look. (I'm on my phone so I hope that link works.) Edit: I'm back home now. Here's a proper desktop link.

I don't have this model, but I have a similar model. The reason I linked you this model is because it measures in 0.01g increments which might (or might not) be an indication that it's more accurate, but even the other model(s) they have goes in 0.1g increments so either one would work. Keep in mind that the max of this one is 100g. The other model is something around 500 or 600.

Edit: Achievement unlocked; I triggered not one, but two bots.

Edit 2: see my comment below about why a max of 500g or more might be better

Question about scales? [R]

4 years, 5 months agoMarch 15, 2015

So I'm about to start making my own juices and everything I've read says there is a much lower margin for error mixing by weight as opposed to volume. Now my question is this: I've seen people saying that you need a scale that goes down to hundredths, however, I already have a scale, but it only measure down to tenths. Is this sufficient? Is the margin for error still going to be lower than mixing by volume? Will having a scale that measures down to hundredths really make that much of a difference over a scales that only measures down to tenths? If so, what is a good scale for $20-$30(preferable, but I can go higher if absolutely necessary). Thanks in advance!

Was eating 1800-2000cal per day (on & off of ketosis) for a year, while exercising regularly, but still no significant fat losses? – I'm Concerned that the recomp cut plan just won't "cut it" either. [R]

4 years, 5 months agonezia posted submission on ketogains.
March 11, 2015

Hey fellow ketogainers,

M / 28 / 197lbs / 5'10" / 22% BF

(goal: 170lbs, maintaining current muscle mass, ~10% BF)

Keto experience: I've been on a low-carb (and consequentially high fat/protein) diet for about a year now and I played around with getting into ketosis to find my carbohydrate threshold to stay in ketosis (~45g/day). I cycled through months of <25g and months of 60-80g and found that 45g works pretty well for me to stay in ketosis and have the most energy throughout the day and exercises.

As I'm not able to run blood tests regularly I had to rely on my own perception of acetone breath as an indicator, as well as observing my energy levels. If I don't get the carb induced "sugar crash", after meals for an extended period of time at the given 45g carbs max., along with the acetone breath, I'd say that I am staying in ketosis successfully.

TDEE & deficit so far: According to the spreadsheet my TDEE is roughly 2370 calories.

I usually stayed in the realm of 1800-2000calories per day, while exercising additionally. Year 2014 itself was a slow year for lifting for me so I mainly cycled (2-3x/week of HIT-intervals), which would result in at least 1500 additionally burned calories per week, which were not refed.

Just by the calorie count and the given deficit I should have lost fat over the course of last year, but to my surprise I didn't.

Could it be that I didn't eat enough?

Meal habits: I usually have just two meals a day. One morning tortilla wrap (only source of around 35g carbs) filled with eggs, bacon, some cheese, avocado, raw greens and some pickles. In the late afternoon after work I'll eat a meat and fat heavy meal with no carbs and lots of greens. Sometimes I precook some asian style stirfry or some kind of casserole for a few days or just prepare steak with veggies or salad. Later at night I'll drink some broth and maybe snack on some raw sweet potato slices or eat the other half of an avocado, if my macros allow it. Around lunch time I'll usually drink a buttered coffee and maybe snack on a few brazilian nuts, almonds or a spoon of peanutbutter to get me through the workday.

No uncontrolled eating-out during lunchbreak (I stay in, just the coffee for me), no snacks, no sugary treats, no soda, no alcohol. If I crave something sweet I'll grab a protein shake.

Every once in a while (once every two weeks or even scarcer) there will be a cheat day, usually a Saturday, due to some social events or family gatherings. I don't want my lifestyle choice to be a burden on others and most certainly don't want to cause any discussion about it in such situations. Even on those days I usually stay below 2500 calories total (max.). Usually by Monday I can tell that I'm back on ketosis (breath).

Keto gains / lifting: I started lifting again in December and am following the SL5x5 protocol consistently so far. In addition I'm running or cycling 3x/week, whilst leading a mostly sedentary lifestyle, due to a desk-bound job.

I joined /r/ketogains/ specifically recently to reach my goal of cutting 27lbs and getting down to around ~10% BF, while maintaining my current muscle mass. I don't need to be bigger or wider, just leaner. The numbers are arbitrary goals for the sake of having a goal. Health and visual appearance is what counts.

Since I'm lifting again I lost ~6lbs already and got a bit slimmer (measurement wise), but for the time put in the progress is a bit underwhelming. I used the spread sheet to do my calculations and want to follow the 12w body recomp protocol to try cutting with a strategy.

But to be honest I'm slightly concerned about the amount of calories to consume on lift days. According to the spread sheet I'm looking at 2400calories/day on lift days with the 20% deficit and even 2650 on the 10% cut days. As a result: The daily average over the course of a week would be in a similar range as it was the entire last year: 1800-2000 calories/day.

Because of that I'm afraid that the body recomp cut protocol won't make a difference either.

Should I just go with it and eat up the calories on lift days, despite not being hungry?

Where do you think lies the mistake that the results haven't live up to the 'math' so far?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

5'8"/17/M/155/17-21pc BF

I've been on keto 2 months with the goal of losing fat while maintaining muscle. I aim for 1500kcal a day at a 2000kcal sedentary expenditure but realisticall I go up to 1700kcal a day on average, occasionally up to 2000-2200. I usually get at least 90+ protein. Often 100+.

1 month ago I got a dumbell set and worked my way up from 10 lbs to 15 lbs with some basic dumbell exercises. Yesterday I got a standard barbell and some plates. I've been messing around with practicing form and testing my limits at 45lbs for benching, pressups, squats, rows, and deadlifts. Obviously I'm not that that strong. I'm trying to start stronglifts with the goal of increasing strength while cutting so I'll have a good head start when I get to a low enough bf to start some sort of bulk or lean gains.

For supplementation I take creatine everyday and I'm about to start making my own preworkout out of nitrate, beta alanine, creatine, BCAA's, and caffeine. I've heard these are good for the muscles especially when cutting, so I'm making it myself because I am on a budget and I can make it for 1/4 of the price GNC charges for the branded stuff.

Is there anything that sticks out that I really need to change or stop? Is there anything missing from my plan that I really need to add?

What is the current Third Wave consensus on espresso measurements? [R]

4 years, 7 months agoxpedition posted submission on espresso.
Jan. 12, 2015

I got into espresso at American "third wave" places a few years ago and got a serious machine perhaps a month ago. One thing that I can't find online: current wisdom on Third Wave measurements.* The Specialty Coffee Association of America seems to have a standard but won't publish it (perhaps they want you to take their training programs?).

From my limited experience the American approach differs from the official Italian approach by using Arabica beans, which will produce less crema but more sweetness, and more volume in the portafilter (e.g. 9g instead of 7g for a single).

Official Italian measurements (see PDF p. 7)

The most relevant r/coffee post

Are those differences accurate in your experience? What other ways would you say that the American approach is different from the standard Italian one?

  • I have a number of great local places so will ask them what they do and post in the comments later if I get any good advice.

Yep! I use this scale on my drip tray as it goes to fractions of a gram and fits under the portafilter with a little ceramic bowl on top: http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-0-01g-Digital-Scale/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1421508338&sr=8-1&keywords=scale+aws

I just made my first set of lotion bars and I have questions. [R]

4 years, 7 months agovalentinedoux posted submission on DIYBeauty.
Jan. 14, 2015

I went through a few recipes I found online and they seemed relatively similar, so here's what I used:

5 oz of shea butter 5 oz of beeswax 5 oz of sweet almond oil

Basically, it was equal parts of each. I was pleased with how easy it was and how quickly they set, however, I was unhappy with how "greasy" they were and how it took forever for them to absorb into my skin. I'd been gifted some lotion bars from Seattle Sundries and while they're initially "greasy" feeling, they absorb pretty quickly. The ones I made at home were both greasy and waxy feeling, though they eventually did absorb.

What could I do in the future to mimic the ones that were bought for me? The ingredient list on the store-bought lotion bars are as follows:

Beeswax, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Essential Oil blend.

I feel like I need less beeswax, but since this is all new to me, I figured this forum would be a great place to ask for advice.

If you decided to get a digital kitchen scale, make sure you get the one that can weigh from 0.1g to 100g.

For small batches (less than 1 ounce), it is best to get a miniature digital scale that reads to 0.01g like this one.

Yup, trust me, 20$ now for a scale will save you money in the long run. You'll inevitably underestimate how much of something you are taking, which can be dangerous at worse, and expensive as you go through supplements quicker at best.

This scale is on sale for 10 dollars right now actually, so I'd go with it. It has tons of good reviews. http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-0-01g-Digital-Scale/dp/B0012LOQUQ/

This one, which I have, is good though because it has a little metal cup to place the supplements in. I guess otherwise you could use a little paper cup or something, put it on the scale and tare it, then add your supplements if you go with the first scale.

Reducing the load in a mil-surplus 7.62x54r round. [R]

4 years, 8 months agohobitopia posted submission on guns.
Dec. 3, 2014

So I am picking up a Mosin Nagant this winter and want to be able to take the slighter framed members of my friends and family shooting. Mosins can be a bit harsh on recoil for someone small-framed so I was wondering how I would go about reducing the power of a 7.62x54r round.

I will have a proper bullet puller, but I won't have a very accurate scale to use. My plan is to pull the bullet and reduce the powder charge by a fraction (maybe to one half or two thirds of original), but I know that this has consequences.

I am hoping someone could tell me what dangers exist if I decide to take a 7.62x54r round, reduce the charge by approximately 50% then fire it out of a Mosin Nagant. I know the bullet may not leave the barrel (and am prepared to check the bore after every shot), but what other problems may occur.

Is it possible, what equipment would be needed, and what would the starting cost be?

Nov. 21, 2014

Honestly? You could potentially get by with just a bullet puller, neck sizing die, and a hand press for re-seating the bullets.

You'd just have to make sure the new bullets you're putting in there are the same weight, and are seated to the same depth as the old ones and you can ~~probably get by without the scale even~~. It just probably wouldn't be any more accurate than surplus ammo.

EDIT: You'll still need a scale just to double check everything, but all you need is a cheap one like this. It's the same scale as one of the hornady ones, but at a third the price.

A couple of questions - beginner here, need ideas for a really simple one-gallon recipe! :) [R]

4 years, 10 months agochino_brews posted submission on Homebrewing.
Sept. 25, 2014

Hello! I'm a total newbie and am about to bottle my first 2 gallons of Mr. Beer 'Aztec', but am wanting to go ahead and try experimenting with a raw recipe! Today I picked up a one gallon carboy and am wanting to do a simple recipe. I'd REALLY like to try and make the White House Honey Ale but don't know how complicated it is (or isn't), and whether or not the store will/should have all the ingredients? Also, I'd have to somehow narrow it down to a one gallon recipe.

Today I bought a 1 gallon carboy, a stopper, an air lock, and a stick-on thermometer. What else would I need? I know I'd need some sort of tubing to eventually get the beer out, and a funnel? StarSan to clean the carboy out first, or would washing it in the dishwasher first work?

And, well, finally, I'd some ideas for some simple one gallon recipes! I like just about any kind of beer outside of IPAs.

Sorry for all the dumb questions, but thank you!!

Good advice by /u/machinehead933. NB also posts their one gallon kit's recipe and ingredients. The 5-gallon recipe uses DME only because LME does not come in the increment needed for the recipe. The 1-gallon recipe is all LME. A LHBS should be able to sell you everything you need, and convert between quantities of DME and LME needed if you show them the recipe. In fact, they may even have a 1-gallon kit for this one.

Make a note on the 1-gallon sheet that the "specialty grains" for one-gallon are:

  • 0.15 lbs (68 g) English Medium Crystal Malt; and

  • 0.10 lbs (45 g) Belgian Biscuit Malt.

Also, increase the honey to 3-4 oz. if you source your own materials. Avoid cheap honey that is often really adulterated with mislabeled sugar syrup, but otherwise the type of honey is not important. An organic store, Whole Foods, Costco, and the farmers market are good sources for honey.

And use the Windsor yeast. You can pitch half a pack of dry yeast, and not worry about rehydrating with 1-gallon batches. Advice does not apply to other size batches.

Also, if you are going to brew at less than 5-gallon scale, then invest now in a $12 0.1-gram resolution scale like this one. Convert all your weights to grams, and weigh in grams.

FYI, you will be buying hops in 1 oz. packs (28.5 g) and using fractions of that. If you have a vacuum sealer, you can store the hops in the freezer for at least 1 year after vacuum sealing.

You can vacuum seal the yeast, and it will stay viable in the fridge for at least 6 mos.

This is the first kit I brewed after I got back into brewing after a 20-year hiatus, and I have since brewed it all-grain from time to time. It is very nice.

Have fun!

I heard that brewing kratom makes it stronger, so how much should I brew in order to get the same effect as taking 1 tsp of ground kratom?

Also, what is the simplest/fastest way to brew it? I don't want to make this into a big process but it would be nice to get more use out of my kratom.

EDIT: I'd like to be able to measure this in tsp, not grams, because I don't have a scale. I don't care if it's 100% exact either. Like 1/4 vs 1/5 of a tsp doesn't make a difference to me.

Aug. 23, 2014

TL;DR: Read the bold, i'm a chatty mate.

"Backstory": So i'm 17, and really enjoy coin collecting, i have quite a few old ones...well, for my age and when i started collecting i guess yall probably have a few hundred coins, and i will end up posting a picture of all them wanting some history on a couple, what some are worth, etc. I don't plan to sell any of them, unless they're worth a few grand, but i doubt i have anything worth over melt value. I also have this really really interesting coin for a piano, well i guess it's a token, so i'll have to get some info on that puppy, you'll here how i came about it sometime next week :D you don't know how excited i am to tell you.

Questions:

- How do you keep all of your coins? At the moment all i have is a small box and I try to not rattle it so they won't get scratched when i pick the box up and what not, but i still feel as I could get a better method. I do want to buy a fireproof safe one of these upcoming days, as i have come paranoid after having the electrical wiring in our (rented) house burn, finding that some of the outlets were connected using extension cords (tore up the carpet last year, beautiful wood floors underneath, and found a cord leading from one outlet to another, not even close electrical grade wiring), having a fuse box from the 1930s, and having our (window) air conditioner get too much power and the compressor exploded, yes a 220v ac unit of which the compressor exploded, you should see the outlet, blacker than black. The house is really really old obviously, and definitely not up to code, i think it would give an inspector a heart attack.

- What type of safe should i get? there's so many different fire ratings, sizes, etc. what do you recommend for a small collection?

- Not really coin related, but how would i keep my dollars? I have a few silver certificates, and was thinking of putting them inbetween two pieces of plexiglass or something similar, something removable of course, but just something to keep them safe.

-How do i clean my coins? i do realize the side says "PLEASE RESIST THE URGE TO CLEAN YOUR COINS IF YOU EVER INTEND TO SELL THEM." but i'm just saying how do i get the dirt of? I'm not saying how do i use a metal brush on them, just how do i properly clean them, without harming them, even if properly cleaning them is just using a damp rag, fyi I've yet to attempt to clean any of my coins, unless there was a chunk of dirt on them, so don't have a heart attack!

-What scale do you use? I just have a small small scale that i bought for like $5 off of ebay when i had to measure a penny when they had like a full copper and then the copper/zinc penny (have a penny book)

  • 2x2 Cardboard flips will be your friend.

  • The amount of money you spend on a safe should probably be 10% of the total value of your collection. If youre just starting out a simple Sentry or well hidden spot will do but those things dont bolt down and are easy to crack/hotwire. When you start getting really up there in worth look to getting a heavy TL-15+ rated bolt down safe.

  • Currency Sleeves work well at keeping bills safe.

  • Do not clean your coins, ever. Never unless you dug them up out of the ground. Even then be extremely careful with just warm distilled water and gentle swishing. Sorry, cant avoid the heart attack every time someone brings this up.

  • This is a really nice scale. Reliable and dependable. Rarely needs recalibration. Perfect for coin collecting. Bit small if your start going down the silver stacking path.

I have tried multiple preworkouts and recently have been making my own. I bought the following from amazon: caffeine, beta alanine, and the scale. 200 mg caffeine and 4 g beta alanine per serving. I bought 500g of each and that comes out to about 21 cents per serving which is much cheaper than any actual preworkout.

Yea, there are lots of fakes out there, but usually they are of high value coins. Yours just looked cleaned. If you are starting to collect and concerned about fakes, you can get a scale for $10-12 (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-0-01g-Digital-Scale/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1402772461&sr=8-1&keywords=scale+.01 ). But any coins under say $50 are very unlikely to be fakes. If you want to buy higher value coins, just stick to legit coin dealers until you learn what to look for you.

Perfect example of why eyeing out drugs DOES NOT WORK. [R]

Once, while weighing out 2ce I picked up what I thought was about 5-7mg with my tweezers, and put it on my scale. As soon as I let go of it, it poofed up like a cloud, 25mg. When that happened, everything made sense. All the times eyeing it out that I didnt trip, and the one time I had the best trip of my life, all of which i thought were similar doses. Nooooope I probably snorted about 15mg that one time. Get a scale people, eyeing out drugs active at low doses such as 2Cx's simply doesn`t work.

EDIT: I have a scale, I got one quite a long time ago. The times I eyed it out were over a year ago, I'm just remembering this now

Seriously, best ~20 bucks you'll invest even if you dont sell. Split one among your friends or housemates and never get ripped off. IF YOUR DEALER KNOWS YOU HAVE A SCALE THEY ARE LESS LIKELY TO SHORT YOU.

I use a 10mg-resolution scale (something like this one on Amazon) and use around 50mg.

Volumetric measurements are subjective to a very high degree of variability and error, particularly with the little toothpick-like micro-scoops. If you're going to be using bulk powders, investing the $10 or so in a scale is a really good way to go.

The laws of MDMA [R]

5 years, 3 months agoohThisUsername posted submission on MDMA.
May 13, 2014

In the spirit of harm reduction as we head into the spring/summer festival season, I thought I'd share my three laws of MDMA use. These are general tips I hope others will follow and take seriously. This is not professional or specialized advice, but I personally treat them like laws that should not be broken.

  • Law 0: Test your stuff. The other three laws are created with the assumption that you have clean, tested MDMA. (Acetone wash for purity is recommended).

  • Law 1: Never roll with more than 3mg/kg within a night. (e.g. no more than 225mg for a 75kg individual).

  • Law 2: Never roll within the same 30 days, and no more than 6 times within a year. (Less frequently is highly recommended).

  • Law 3: Know and plan your dose beforehand and weigh it accurately (a .1g scale won't cut it).

I firmly believe that if these laws are followed that risk from usage can be minimized in a way that is safe for almost all users. I have relatives and friends who have developed health problems or can no longer roll because they didn't follow these laws. There are numerous other ways to reduce harm and these laws should not be considered introductory guidelines. Have fun and roll safe everyone!

This is the scale I personally have and I love it, I'll be it, it only goes to two decimal places but that's all I really need personally. They have other products that can go to three decimals if needed.

The scale also fits in your pocket, if you're curious about size.

Help with significant underextraction (pourover, aeropress) [R]

OK, so, every time, method being either aeropress or pourover, my coffee comes out light-colored and very under-flavored. basically, always looks like this: http://imgur.com/yg7JBAQ

This has happened with a variety of beans and roasts, water temps, grind sizes, etc. i have been experimenting for weeks now and haven't been able to produce a full-bodied cup with flavor. I even went as far as buying the EXACT same beans as blue bottle (i posted the pourover video), the same filters as well as their pourover machine and replicated their exact steps. their cup is full of flavor and very strong while this cup is basically light brown hot water.

Can anyone give some advice on what would cause significant under extraction? Can it be the type of water I use (filtered tap water)?

Since we've determined that it was probably your water/coffee ratio and that this could be off because you don't have a scale, here are a couple American Weigh scales that don't cost much on Amazon. I have a more expensive American Weigh and it is perfect. Keep in mind that you will probably never need to weigh more than 100g of coffee.

I've had my Extreme Q for a little over a month and I have been loving elbow packs. The conservation of flowers is exceptional and the thick vapor pulls are outstanding.

You consider the straight wand with the replacement SSV cyclone bowl to be even better?

How is it on conservation? One of the things I like so much about an elbow pack is that I can get a great 90 minute high off of a quantity of ground flowers that are light enough to not even register on my digital scale (AWS-100, measures to .01 grams.)

Sorry for so many questions and thanks in advanced for your answers.

So if I turn my scale to grams (it has a setting for punds ounces and grams) and put a nickel or dime whatever it is, on it, it shows 5 grams. But there is no 0.5 or anything. I will need to know if some is 1.5 grams or not. How do i weigh right? what am i doing wrong?

I put a nickel and set it to grams (it weighs up to 11lbs and it has setting for lbs oz and grams.) and it just shows 5. It doesnt show a 0. or anything. Whats up with that? I need to be able to weigh .5 grams.

5 years, 5 months agoTreebadour posted on trees.
March 22, 2014

Unfortunately, I don't think it can weigh in .1 increments, so you won't be able to measure .5

If it's on the gram setting, a penny should read 2.5 grams

Now that I think about it, most scales that go up to pounds can't weight in small enough increments to be a good weed scale. You need something like this:

The best canned butane for the job? [R]

At one time I thought Vector was king, but after GW/skys findings on tokecity the best choice is currently Ronson or Zippo.

Ronson you say? Where can you get this amazing great butane that had the lowest % residue out of all available butanes in the US?

Walgreens. Ronson is sold for around 6$ a can. To be fair to vector and other companies, Ronson wasn't always good. It was purchased by Zippo recently, changes went through and now we have two of the cleanest butanes on the market. It's also here in the US.

I do wonder if it's the best or not though, let me find the link for the study.

Hey ents,

I'm tired of getting ripped off or having the feeling that I might of gotten ripped off so I would like to invest some money into a scale. Problem is that I am a student with not very much money due to school so I'm looking for something more affordable.

If anyone has any suggestions to a good scale that I can buy from amazon or something that would be much appreciated.

I've had this scale for a good 3 years now at least. Never had any problems with it, always been accurate. Measures to the 0.01g, max 100g, lightweight, portable, pretty much anything you can ask for in a small pocket scale.

It's worth noting that they do not come with the 100g calibration weights anymore (mine did when I bought it), so you should pick one of those up as well.

Yea I got a fair bit confused with this scale and the one I purchased. It seems like the exact same thing but 2$ more with 0.01g accuracy, instead of 0.1g.

Also the scale I got seems like it already has flaws, which seem similar to the negative reviews on the AWS products

Caffeine Powder question [R]

5 years, 5 months agoNyxian posted submission on Fitness.
Feb. 26, 2014

I just found out that I can buy caffeine powder in bulk from amazon. I usually just drink coffee before a work out but I use a french press and it's kind of a pain in the ass to make when I'm in a hurry. How many of you guys use caffeine powder and what are your thoughts? What is a recommended dosage ?

5 years, 5 months agoNyxian posted on Fitness.
Feb. 26, 2014

16g vs 200mg caffeine

I honestly don't know why you think that. It's really, really easy to measure out a dosage on a scale.

$10.35 amazon prime, 10mg accurate scale

Yes, pills have advantages for portability, ease of use - but less customization. 200mg caffeine pills? Pretty hard to split them to different doses. With this, you can customize pretty much any dose you want.

You can also take it through different methods (sublingually), which kicks in a fair bit faster than a pill.

<hr />

edit

Just to expand on the "dangerous" part, I was wondering how much it takes to kill you.

>The LD50 of caffeine in humans is dependent on individual sensitivity, but is estimated to be about 150 to 200 milligrams per kilogram of body mass

You want a dose of 200mg, a ld50 deadly dose would be 16 grams.

Well, I just received my first shipment of samplers from Adagio. I've tried a couple of the oolongs samples, formosa bai hao and jade, and have had mixed results, probably because I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing.

I'm steeping in a mug for now (gaiwan is in transit). I couldn't get any flavor from the bai hao, but after a rinse and 3 steepings that included trying different water temperatures I got some flavor and nice aroma from the jade. I feel like I'm kind of flailing around in the dark figuring out what's right for making any kind of loose leaf teas right now. Does anyone have advice for me on what to do or is it more of an experimentation process to get it right?

So I have been loaning my scale to a kid in my dorm and he kept saying he was gonna buy it, tonight I said I either need him to buy it now or give it back to sell to someone else. He said he would give me 2 grams for it and I say sure. I ask some of my buddies if they want to smoke later and they asked me who was selling, I said the other guy was and he was giving me some to buy the scale. Someone interpreted it as me getting free weed and then asked the dealer if he could get some free weed. The dealer then got pissed at me and wouldn't even listen to me explain what really happened and never gave me my weed. Now my dealer is looking to get his own scale because he just uses the guy he picks up from. Should I give the other guys another chance or go and get my scale back and sell it to my dealer? Tl;DR Tried to sell scale for weed, people thought I was getting free weed and asked dealer for some, dealer got pissed and didn't give me weed. Do I take my scale back and sell it to someone else?

Edit: just realized this might be confusing there are multiple dealers in my dorm and the one that has the scale is not my dealer.

Since my experiments are progressing, I decided to buy a good, high precision scales (preferably 0.1mg - it's not cheap, but my health isn't free either). Found a shop online, and when talking with them, I got asked about the purpose (with the strong hint that they are working with LE as they got purchase orders trackable back to drug use/dealing).

What could be reasonable reason to buy such a scales? Chemical experiments do no usually need this kind of precision. So what could I use? I do not work in chem/pharmacy related fields, but I can always say that I'm excentric, or decided to cater to my inner-child, so as long as there is legitimate home-use for 1mg/sub-mg precision scale, I could probably use it.

Do you live in the U.S.?

Trust me, there isn't any piece of legislation in any of the 50 states that categorizes a scale a drug paraphernalia. You can own as many scales as you want without impunity; however, if you are found with both a scale AND drugs in your possession, you may be charged with possession with the intent to distribute. That's real bad, trust me.

You can get a very nice scale like this one for $10 that can measure up to a hundred grams with a .01 accuracy. Just make sure to buy a calibration weight along with it.

I don't need a milligram scale. I want a kitchen scale that I can use for measuring very small amounts (yeast, salt, and certain additives), but can still measure up to 2 KG at least. Any recommendations of scales you've tried?

6 years agoh_lehmann posted on AskCulinary.
Aug. 9, 2013

You'll probably have a hard time finding one that will meet both of those requirements. Your standard digital kitchen scale will easily measure up to 2kg, but won't be able to measure accurately below 1 gm., if that. For really small measures (spices, etc.), I bought a small folding digital scale from Amazon (made by a company called AWS), that reads down to 0.01 gm, but only has a capacity of 100 gm. I think I only paid about US $10 for it.

You can buy a really swell scale that measures to the hundredth of a gram on amazon. For about $10.

Here is a link.

Get This

Thing is VERY precise. I just put a Solo Cup on it since you obviously can't fit an oz, much less a lb, on just the plate. Also have this card board piece, square on the bottom then goes out like an upside down pyramid at like 150 degrees. A solo cup should work fine for you though.

How to tell the weight of a disc? [R]

I got a disc as a gift today (Innova) and the package did not say its weight, however in some kind of ink it says 147 in the very middle of the disc where there is that circle the size of a quarter. I notice some of my other discs have this. Am I correct in assuming this is the weight?

Thanks in advance.

Honestly, most of those scales aren't meant to weigh something as heavy as a disc. Max weight on mine is 100 grams.

dude, if you're looking for a scale recommendation, I bought this thing for about the same price its listed right now. Keep in mind though that you might want to buy a calibration weight, too. If not, you can use 20 nickels. I think each one weighs exactly 5 grams. If you're across the pond, I think 20 pent coins weigh exactly 5 grams, too. If you're in the EU, you could use 12 0.50 euro coins, 1 0.10 euro coin, and 1 0.01 euro coin for exactly 100 grams. I'm sure there are other combinations too, you guys just don't have nice round numbers for your coin weights.

Good luck, dawg

A trench is almost exactly .2, I've measured two different ones filled to the top of the trench, and bother were almost exactly .2. Which is awesome because it means it only takes .4g to get me stoned.

I have this scale, don't think you can get much cheaper for .01 accuracy. http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-Signature-AWS-100-Digital/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=pdsimk_5

Need a scale? Than get one from me fore 50%. More goodies inside for sale too [R]

$10. Calibration directions are come with the package (you might want to pick up some weights for a couple of $ for accuracy sake, but clean quarters work as well).

Are you lookin' at scales or testkits?

Two great scales are the American Weigh AWS-100 (which does 100g x .01 increments) and the American Weigh Gemini-20 (20g x .001). As always, the more precise it is the better, but the AWS-100 will most likely work fine, but I recommend the Gemini if you can.

If you were wanting to buy a digital scale from Amazon.com, which one would you get? [R]

I have a credit with them, and I think a nice scale would be cool to have.

Suggestions?

I have one of these AWS-100. It weighs up to 100 grams, 0.01 gram accuracy, for only $8.69.

What's the best scale you can buy on the cheap? [R]

Measuring 100mg on a scale that goes in .1g increments, with 0.2g tolerance? [R]

6 years, 3 months agopenizman posted submission on Drugs.
May 8, 2013

I would like to measure roughly 100 mg (+/- 10mg is fine) of a particular substance.

I have a scale that only goes down to 0.1 grams, with a 0.2 g tolerance. If I start with nothing on the scale, and slowly add the substance until it hits 0.1g, can I be reasonably assured that the dose is between 80-120mg or so?

What about this scale? http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-Signature-AWS-100-Digital/dp/B0012LOQUQ/ref=sr12?ie=UTF8&qid=1368059344&sr=8-2&keywords=Milligram+scale

I really don't wanna do more than 10 bucks, or any money if I have to. This is a one time thing for me.
