Weighing hops

So I bought 3 packs at 8 oz each, in the bag they 8 oz exactly. Now I thought I was buying 8 oz of hops, and the bag would make it weigh more… Any of you have the same experience? My scale isn’t high tech, yet when I weigh grains from LHBS and check when I’m home they are so close, I’m content… Sneezles61

The hops should weigh 8ozs without the bag. I buy my hops by the pound from Niko brew and I split them into 2oz baggies and they are right on. I don’t think the bag weighs much regardless

Thats what I am going to do, just too damn busy… I can’t catch up… but even if the bag doesn’t weigh much, its still too much. Sneezles61

Same thing got bunch hops from holland. Their 10oz. So what i did. Indeed my scale super simple. Took the back to a backery the guy did weigh the hops indeed 10 oz. Only thing convert oz to grams. Now got backs of 1 oz

The hops are the weight and the bag is separate. The hops net weight is 8oz. If you included the bag it would be a gross weight.
