1 heaping Tablespoon = 5g = 1 serving :)

No scoop in the creatine. Just use a teaspoon measure, that is what I do.

Well, that's nothing compared to our next cost cutting measure, plastic bags instead of containers :whazzup: ...

Cutting costs? I have never bought any creapure that came with a scoop. For one, the container isn't big enough for it to contain one that you can reach for...secondly, it's a teaspoon for a serving.

I love my monthly garbage bag protein delivery *LOL*
don't knock it!

Although I have to admit the first few times I thought it was kinda crazy...

I have 2 special glass tubs that hold 10 pounds of powder each!
one for MRP and one for protein/carbs
so I dump em outta the bags when they arrive!

thank god for zip ties!

bulk protein rules...I mean cmon...5lb tubs? puh-leeze
gimme 20 or 10 at least!

I know that you meant one teaspoon SP, but has anyone ever taken one TABLESPOON of creatine in one go??

You would be in the toilet for awhile me thinks.......

I fill my spoon up and tamp it on the side of teh jar so that any excess falls back into the jar. I actually weighed it out using this method, and it was exactly 5gs, which is amazing due to the fact that my scale is accurate to about 1/6000th of a g IIRC.

I got my mum to mix some protein powder once, only she got the creatine and protein powder mixed up. I knew something was wrong but I drank the whole thing, anyway. If I remember correctly, it was 2 heaped tablespoons. It didn't seem to have any noticeable effect on me, however.

That is completely normal (the tub not being filled).
