Share your thoughts: How big a batch do you make for a first time product?
When I make a product for the first time, I generally make a 100 gram batch because I don't see a point in having a lot of something I might not like or something that might fail. It's a larger enough batch that I can measure it easily - very few 0.5% or 0.25% amounts - and large enough that I can try it for a week or two before using it up. I could make a few small bottles to share with others, too.
So the lesson here is to take into consideration the type of product you are making and the container in which you'll be storing it.
Share your thoughts: How large is your first batch of any product? How do you make that decision? And those of you using Imperial measurements - what is your standard sized batch?
