agar question
    #823392 - 08/17/02 12:07 PM (19 years, 1 month ago)

Ok i have 8oz of potato dextrose agar. I have no way of measuring out grams to mix it with the right amount of water. Can anyone tell me how many teaspoons or tablespoons of PDA to mix per cup or pint of water. Thanks in advance.

Good bye.

Buy or make a scale. You'll need it for dosing and a bunch of other things.

if you know the total weight of the agar you have ordered, then in order to obtain a small known weight, it is simply a division problem. alternativly, borrow the scale at the grocery store

Re: agar question [Re: canid]

are postal scales the kind that are metal and you clip what you want to weigh on them and then let them dangle and read the weight? If so i have one and those suck for measuring small quantites. I've measured out 1/8s on those before then had someone weigh them with a digital scale and all the 1/8s were either a good half gram over or under what they shoulda been.

and thank you everyone that actually contributed an intelligent response to my question instead of saying "buy a scale there cheap" which does absolutly nothing but waste time and space. And pleezer, FUCK YOU and your assumptions about me being an ass after reading one of my responses to someones post that did nothing but frustrate me more. Its good to know that your able to know me well enough to be able to make a claim on what I am. Also I'm glad someone asked you to be the judge of personalites around here. Eat a dick and thank you very much.

ROFLMAO!!! You just proved him right....again.... Learn some manners. Just because you're broke and pissed off it doesn't give you the right to lash out on others who are giving you valid advice.

sorry dog i didnt lash out at you I just said "great fucking advice" and i dont think that counts as lashing out. That just means i thought your response was stupid which in no way was an attack on you unlike what pleezer said about me. So actually all you proved was that your an ignorant son of a bitch. There now that is a prime example of me lashing out moron.

and how was your advice valid. Did it actually help answer my question in any way shape or form? Seeing how I asked the question and your reply didnt answer anything I think that constitues as a big fucking no.

First, my advice was quite valid. Buy or build a scale. Are you too big of a fool to realize that measuring the agar by volume is probably more inaccurate than using your piece of shit postal scale? Idiot.

Next time, try to diversify your vocabulary. If you come across as intelligent and not as an uneducated fool with a foul mouth, you might get somewhere in life. Either way, bugger off.

I am going to have to agree with rourke on this one. Even within the same container of agar (let alone different ones) the density of the agar can flucuate. Trust me, there is a reason they use mass measurements, not volumetric ones for most applications.
As little as a 1% or 2% difference can (will) throw off the properties of your agar formulations.
good luck

You suck man, don`t go calling people sweetie for making a suggestion.
So many people on this site can`t take the time to actually read posts or go do a freaking search on the net.
Go to Google and type in weight converter, you`ll find what you need.
Don`t insult someone for making a suggestion.

Damn if you can`t figure out grams then just add enough till you think the solution is at a good pourable consistency, not too thick and not to watery.

Expect to get many different replies in a post. They wont always be the exact advice you would like. That is all it is....advice. Wheather you want to take someones advice is up to you. Dont rag on ppl for giving you their attention to reply to your post. With an attitude like that you wont last long here at the shroomery.

The laugh is on you buddy. Fuck you too BTW.

thank you for wasting even more space in this thread. Seriously if anybody feels the need to bitch at me please have the curtusy to PM me instead of replying in an advance cultivation thread. I've been trying to respond to all the bitching via PM so try putting it there in the first place. I dont understand what the big deal about saying "great fucking advice" was in the first place. I wasnt insulting anyone there just expressing that a response didnt do anything to help me. Trust me thats not me being rude thats just how folks talk around these parts where I'm from. We say fuck alot and it really hasnt been a big deal since 3rd fucking grade.

i know you're not able to buy a scale right now but you could make a balance scale, that's what i did. they are the most acurate scale you can get as long sa the counter-weights are acurate but even using paperclips (approx. one gram apiece) has been accurate enough for me in a pinch. sorry if it's no help but it's the best i can offer.

Pu enough in the 500mls to make it easily whitish and clouded even when you lift it out with a teaspoon - i use three and a half teaspoons minimum and two tea spoons of malt per 500mmls

HongKong, get your freakin head out of your ass. These people are trying to help you, and this is how you thank them? By cursing at them, calling them names? You don't just come to a board ask for advice and cuss someone out because you think your the man. In fact, in what... a day, maybe two, you've made yourself look like and ass to a large portion of this board. So far your not off to a good start. For a simple reason. I'm never ever going to reply to any of your other questions for the simple reason that I fear it will not be appreciated and that I as well will be cursed at. You just dug yourself into a hole. Why wouldn't anyone want to help you now?

In reply to:

Well the thing is, its a big deal because even if the advice doesn't help you, this person took time out of his day to atleast TRY and help you. But this is how you show your appreciation, not by saying thanks but that doesn't help me. But by being sarcastic as well as an asshole.
