Well.... The eaisest way is to put a mesureing cup on the scale and mesure
how much lour weighs.  Note it, bake the bread, and if it's perfect RECORD
the weight.  Keep using it.  On the other hand if the bread looks like it
needs a bit more or less, then expierment an ounce or two with the next loaf.

By the way.  I find that 2 cups is 10-12 ounces
