I truly appreciate the suggestion and especially the link. My problem is that my Taylor scale will not, I daresay, register .004 OZ. of IDY!

There are 2 ways you can get to this amount, that I used.

1st: If you have a measurement tool for "point of a knife" you can count, let's say 100 of those and see what the result on your scale is. Then take the portion (number of units) that corresponds 0.113g.

2nd: measure more of the yeast and dilute it in a cocktail shaker or similar. After the diluting time, shake or mix it well and take the portion that corresponds 0.113g.

3rd: A combination of both. See, how many spoons is 113g, then take 1% of the number of spoons, dilute it and take 10% of the water.
