Hey folks. I am sure I am missing something, but how do we properly measure the right amount of biochar? To use the standard reccomendation of 10% by volume, or even a standard volume measurment, such as a cubic foot, the particle size post grinding\sifting varies based on the mesh size. Knowing that the total \ overall surface area increases by making it smaller, does that change anything?
I get more total char in a 5g bucket at 2mm \ ~1\16" than if I left it at 1/4" or 1/8" which is where I seem to be having trouble getting clear answers. That said:
What is the ideal partical size to use (3/8", 1/4", 1/8", 1/16" etc) and calculate the volume by?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
