[APD] Re: Calling Byron J. Yu
Thanks for ur concern... it was just a measuring problems when using
the calculator... I actually dose using ml's, and i don't dose dry,
but mix it in a 500 ml solution, so while it may not be as accurate as
a scale.... i think it averages out fine.

I can guarantee you that your calculations are off and probably have less kno3 (or whatever nutrient) by using the tablespoons. After 'borrowing' an electronic scale from work I measured it all out down to the last .1 of a gram and it was MUCH more than I was dosing with teaspoons!
