Fast Weigh MS-500-BLK Digital Gram Scale + Hands on Review

The Fast Weigh MS-500-BLK by American Weigh Scale features a 500 gram capacity and weighs in .1 gram increments.  It has a backlit LCD display and is powered by 2 AAA batteries.  The protective cover that doubles as a weighing tray.  It has the requisite (in my opinion) tare feature that allows you to get a net weight of the item by subtracting container weight.  It displays in both ounces and grams.

This is great for accurately weighing hops, spices and small amounts of specialty grains.  I own this great scale.  Check out my hands on review

    I have owned both the Ultraship 55# scale mentioned here and the American Weigh 110# scale mentioned yesterday ( and I can say that the one from yesterday is much better for homebrewing. The platform is larger so it fits a bucket, whereas the bucket is unstable on the 55# scale. The 110# capacity also allows me to use it to measure my strike and sparge water (I don’t have a sight glass on my HLT). The 110# comes with a AC adapter, whereas you need to buy it separately for the 55#. And this is a little subjective, but I think the quality on the 110# feels much better than the 55# (which broke on me). The only place the 55# beats the 110# is the ability to clip the display on to the platform. With the 110#, you always have two different parts.
