CSM how much in oz. not TSP

Just a quick Q I couldn't find the A to on Chuck's Calc, Rex's, or on Greg's, pages.

Everything else is laid out for TSP or .oz except for the CSM which I can't seem to find dry weight measurements for anywhere.

I've started weighing out dry ferts and would like to know a recommended CSM dry dose instead of the X amount per 250ml water etc...

Thanks in advance for the help.

JACKPOT!

Thanks Wolf.

CSM+B is 13.6g per tablespoon give or take Guess it depends on the manufacturing method. I suppose I could just weigh out a lvl tea/tablespoon of the stuff myself and do the math from there.

That's a great site and I had not yet seen it. Thanks for the link.

Hmmmm. So, my recent switch to dry dosing CSM+B, where I've been adding 3/16 tsp, says that it would be equivalent to 15 ml is I were using the 'standard' dosing. So, maybe I'm not so far off as I might have expected.

Good data!

Brian,
Out of curiosity. How hard is your water? And how often are you dosing your micros?
You have read my posts in another forum, so I am just trying to find similarities to levels of micro dosing and hard water.

Pete - I haven't actually done a measurement in quite some time, as I'm an avid EI follower now . I'm pretty sure my GH is in the 15 dGH range, but I'll try to get in a measurement tonight. Based on this thread, I'm gonna go to 1/4 tsp of CSM+B 3x per week.
