    I generally use two level measuring tablespoons per pint of water for medium grind kava, and three level measuring teaspoons per pint of water for micronized kava. I'd read in the Kava Library that GWK micronized kava is twice is strong as medium grind kava, so since a measuring teaspoon is 1/3 of a measuring tablespoon, this should make the same strength for both.

    Good information! Though I measure every one of my Kava “doses” in grams, the idea of simply using “tablespoon” scoops is appealing, in terms of convenience. :)

    I just pour the Kava directly from the bag into the strainer.

    I've been using two "rounded tablespoons" (measuring Tablespoons) - for a little over one pint of water. I mostly went with that amount because that is the most you can fit properly into a single Aluball. Recently I got a second Aluball, so I have been doing 3 rounded tablespoons and it's pretty perfect!

    I need to try the scale thing with multiple cultivars. You say you use about 40 grams every night right @Kapmcrunk ?

    Only the best for you, Mr @Krunkie McKrunkface . May I present to you this lovely polished brass double-beam apothecary scale and weight set, with storage recesses in the base for the weights. Most eloquent, I must say, sir.

    I use 7-8 heaping teaspoons. I suppose if you're consistent with your measure it doesn't matter so much what is used.
