Friday gold puzzle – can you crack it?

Place three bars of gold in both scale pans, if they balance, remove those bars. Take the remaining three bars and place one in each of the two scale pans, if the the two bars balance, the remaining un-weighed bar is heaviest, if the bars do not balance, the heavier bar is the heaviest.

If the initial weighing did not balance, take the three bars from the heavier pan and place one in each of the two scale pans, if the the two bars balance, the remaining un-weighed bar is heaviest, if the bars do not balance, the heavier bar is the heaviest.
