    How do you weigh out each of the substances. Would your average kitchen scales do the job?

    Either buy a set of jewellery or....ahem.... 'herb' weighing scales that do weights to 0.1g up to 150g-500g.

    or buy a set of proper measuring spoons.

    I bought my scales (0.1g - 150g) off ebay for £7.99 including shipping.

    Just look for digital scales and you should be able to find loads of them from there on.

    hello all
    8 grams is about 1 and 1/2 teaspoons, 15grams is approx 1 and 3/4 teaspoons.
    hope this helps.

    yeah your probably right, as long as the right amounts are used any spillages of substances should be fine, as far as i know theyre not toxic so you should be fine even if you do spill some
