EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale. 15 lb. Capacity, UltraBright Display and Stainless Steel Platform. Displays ounces/lbs/grams/kgs; Graduation .05 oz / 1 gram. Tare feature, 3 minute auto shutoff. Uses 4 AAA batteries.
HBF Commentary: With a 15 lb capacity and 1 gram resolution, this should work for both grain and hop bills. This has the tare feature, which, in my opinion, is essential. That basically lets you subtract the weight of the container you’re using to get an accurate weight of the item you’re trying to weigh. I also like that this has a stainless top and uses easy to find (Search: AmazonBasics Batteries) AAA batteries.
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:
