Default How to Laterally Balance a Biplane?

I have a global Ultimate Bipe with a YS .63.
As a result of the side mounted engine, I have to put about an ounce of weight on the opposite side wing.

My question is: should I put all the weight on the bottom wing? or put some on the bottom and some on the top?

If you have not added the weight yet, a little in each wing would seem to me to be the way to go. I would not think it would matter all that much though. The main thing here is to have it balanced laterally. I do it with every plane I build and am sold on it.
