I've done a (pretty) quick experiment today with surprising results, maybe someone else can try the following as well and report back? All you need is a flat / conical grinder which allows single dosing and three cups marked A, B, C. 1. Measure out your standard dose, lets assume this is 18g, drop that into the burr chamber, no beans on top, no weights, tampers etc. 2.

Grind the remainder (sho
