Does anyone know how to make a liquid concentrate with jacks hydro two part. It’s a pain in the butt always weighing them out

Not always easy to do usually to make concentrates you need to separate the nutrients in to 2 parts to prevent them from precipitating out of the solution in order to concentrate them enough to benefit you. I would not even try and if you did it would likely require quite a bit of water to do so with out precipitation. I would just weight it out ahead of time in small containers.

That’s what I was thinking a two part mix part a jacks part b calcium nitrate

Download hydrobuddy. Has an option for making concentrations and ratios for stock solution as aquaman linked. you just need to know how far you can concentrate it because stuff like potassium nitrate is usually split between 2 if concentrating it high ect. We are talking like 500:1 tho so I dont know how concentrated you are looking for.

I find the best nutrient mixes usually contain multiple sources of nutrients. You can achieve a better balance keeping things like sodium and sulfates and chloride in check while balancing the levels of all nutrients. That's why 1 part liquid ferts are usually not regarded as good. A lot of ferts use multiple sources of nitrates etc. to achieve a good balance of nutes. Although more parts does not necessarily make them better.

what would be the recipe
Dissolve 220g of 5-12-26 into 32 oz water.

Dissolve 148g of Calcium Nitrate into 32 oz of water.

Now you have two stock solutions. 10ml per gallon of each will give you an EC of about 1.2 (600ppm on .5 scale).

If you want to include Epsom salt for extra mag, dissolve 72.6g of epsom salt into 32 oz of water. 10ml per gallon works out to about 1.2g/gal.

With the above solutions, the 3-2-1 method is as simple as adding 10ml of each solution per gallon of water. You can adjust the concentration by either making stronger stock solutions, or just using more than 10ml/gal. The important thing is the 1 to 0.67 ratio of 5-12-26 and CalNit.

The other option is just weight out like 20 bags of each in ziplocks and throw them in a tupperware container. I use 8 different chems so I feel you on weighing but i just weigh everything up once a month and mix in like 10 mins. Hate measuring liquids as much as weighing out powder. Basically the same thing. Same work.

Couldn't agree more. I don't actually measure anything anymore for this reason. I just watch EC as I'm adding each component.

For example, if I'm targeting 600ppm, add 5-12-26 until I reach 360ppm (.5 scale), then add the CalNit until I reach 600. This is marginally more accurate anyway, as over time both the 5-12-26 and CalNit will absorb water.

Quite frankly however, over the last few grows i haven't used the 5-12-26 + CalNit. Instead I've been using their 10-30-20 bloom booster from clone to harvest, and I'll probably stick with it.

You are the balls now that is simple

I think I’ve just become used to measuring liquid mutes, thanks
 
Can you really get 14 pounds of salt to dissolve in a gallon of water?

Lol. :)
Each nute must have its own stock solution container. Calcium binds with sulfur and creates gypsum, precipitating out of solution. That's why jacks doesn't have calcium.

This is a max solubility and does not represent a ratio of feed concentration. Divide total number of grams by 3785, as that's how many ml are in a gal. That gets you g/ml

I was trying to be sarcastic. You wrote pounds instead of grams.
