comment Are There Primes of Every Hamming Weight?
Qiaochu: no, but I believe it would give one in principle, in the sense that there is no ineffectivity arising from a potential Siegel Zero. People I know who have done the kind of explicit calculations necessary to extract actual bounds from arguments like this attest that it is very painful, and the bounds are often pretty awful to boot.
