This digital scale has a stainless top, back lit LCD display, measures in lbs/ounces and grams/kilograms and has the (in my opinion) required tare function. Tare lets you zero out the scale with the empty measuring vessel on so that you have an accurate weight that does not include the vessel.
The 11 lb capacity is large enough to weigh grain (in two batches) for an all grain batch and the 1 gram accuracy is good enough for measuring hops. This could also handle batches of specialty grains, DME and the like.
A smaller scale can work for all grain brewers, as you can weigh any amount of grain in multiple batches, but if you’re a large batch all grain brewer or regularly brew all grain batches with larger grain bills you may want to consider a two scale approach, one more precise scale for hops and a larger capacity scale for larger grain bills. A couple scales to consider:
- Hands On Review: American Weigh 100g x 0.01g Digital Scale
- Hands On Review: Ultraship 55 lb Digital Scale [Grain] With Removable Face
