I do the same, but instead of labeling the lids I just stack them in reverse order during my prep work. That way when the timer goes off all I have to do is grab the top container and dump it in the kettle, no thinking required.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I just fly by the seat of my pants and measure them out right before I need them. Surely I can't be the only one! :)

You are not Amanda.  I do the same thing.

How do you know she's not Amanda? She Claims to be Amanda. I say we give her the benefit of the doubt!  ;D

Give her the benefit of the doubt?!? Shirley, you jest.... 8)

I just like to have things ready to go, so I keep a set of ziplock bags with FWH, 60, 45, 30, etc. written on them.  I preweigh (sometimes the day before) the hops into the appropriate bags.

Did I mention I have CDO?  It's like OCD, but the letters are in the right order.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!
