Measuring by weight
I was reading that Don is a proponent of weighing liquids when mixing and that's the way I intend to go myself.
However I understand that the specific gravity of the various ingredients varies. For example 1mil of VG by weight is not the same as 1mil of water?
Is there any information on how to find the true weight of 1mil VG, PG etc or am I just being to picky?

RE: Measuring by weight
Since I only make liquids for myself, and am not overly picky, I just measure in volume. Makes my life much easier.
