1.4 half batch mixing


#1

I got an email when I got my soylent saying the scoop measurement wouldn’t be right before but it’s been awhile and I deleted it…

Now I’ve gotten a blender bottle since my soylent use turned rather erratic due to various reasons and want to make half batches but have no clue how. I figured, eh whatever I’ll use the scoop anyway. Well theres not enough room for 8 scoops of water and 4 of soylent when there should be so now I guess I have a bottle of slightly heavier than usual soylent and am wondering what the right usage is.

Assuming you have the old scoop: Preparing Soylent 1.4 With The Legacy Measuring Scoop. Otherwise I have no idea. :smile:


#3

Yep thats it, judging by that I’m 1 scoop too heavy on soylent and water. Thanks, now just one short batch to suffer through before it’s right :smiley:

My method: I use a scale to measure the exact grams directly into my blender. For a full pouch: I make 84ounces (Soylent and water mixture).

For a half pouch: 42ounces total mixture.

I have four 21 ounce insulated stainless Hydroflask bottles for filling up and portability.

To make a half batch of 1.4, use 3.5 scoops Soylent powder, and 3.5 cups of water.


#6

Same here.

measure by weight, then the only question will be how well the mixture is distributed in the bag (ie is there any settling)


#7

how do you pack your scoops ? do you level it off, or not. tap it in the bench to settle it, or not ?
an ounce is an once, a scoop can vary wildly.


#8

The info that comes with the Soylent says that the bag contains approximately 7 to 8 scoops. So I approximate the measurements and don’t worry about the little stuff. It all balances out in the end.


#9

Exactly.

At first I would measure it out with the scoop, but I soon found that I hated fitting the thing in the bag (tight fit) and leveling it off. I always ended up with some powder on the the counter top.
Additionally, I never used the scoop to measure out how much water I put in.
Just easier to dump into my blender, which is sitting on top of the scale.
