FYI: a pinch is an actual unit of measure, 8 pinches = 1tbsp, SWMBO and all her crazy baking stuff come in handy every once in a while
Nowadays 16 pinches = 1 tsp is more common, with a dash as twice that. So 8 dashes = 1 tsp. Though 8 pinches= 1 tsp used to be a common measure (that's is still 1/3 the size that 1/8 tbsp would be).

See, e.g.,, or commercially made measures like these:

On deck: Little Bo Pils, Bretta Off Dead (Brett pale)
Secondary: Oude Bruin, Red Sky at Morning (Sour brown ale)
On tap: Saison Duphunk (sour), Amarillo Slim (IPA), Earl White (ginger/bergamot wit)
Bottled: Number 8 (Belgian Strong Dark Ale), Eternale (Barleywine), Ancho Villa (Ancho/pasilla/chocolate/cinnamon RIS), Oak smoked porter (1/2 maple bourbon oaked, 1/2 apple brandy oaked)

huh, google was wrong on that one thanks for the correction, we have a similar set to that and they come in very handy if your adding salts or spices to a beer
