I much prefer a contact exposed test strip because it eliminates flare. Ralphs instructions are thorough, you certainly may follow his plan.

Then change your exposure by half stop per 0.15 step difference.
Without being precise or even without considering meter calibration point (which could give you a real answer)... Just look at about the seventh step ligher than the darkest step.
