    That's what I've been using. I like the bowl that comes with it as well. I ruined my previous scale when the top came off my VG and completely engulfed it.

    I remember that. I also remember the original Blob. Just don't ask me to remember what happened when, Oh LOOK! a squirrel!

    I made my first mix using a scale. My only question is how I used syringes for the last 4 years. Mixing is fun again!

    Welcome to Scale Watchers, Brian. Mixing will be something you look forward to again as well as it'll be less hassle, more fun-time. :)

    Agreed! :cheers:

    Another option would be to tare the scale with the empty syringe, then just read the scale directly after sucking up your flavor and reweighing the syringe. :)

    Personally, I'd draw and weigh several milliliters of flavoring, to reduce your margin of error for calculating specific gravity. Let's say you can measure with +/-0.1mL accuracy. If you draw 1mL, your margin of error could be as much as 10% of your total volume, but if you draw 10mL, the maximum error is only 1%. So measure and weigh 10mL of flavor, then divide the total weight of the flavoring by 10 to give you a more accurate estimate of its density. If you don't have any large syringes, a graduated pipet and a small beaker work well for this. A small graduated cylinder would do as well.
