55 lb Grain Scale with Removable Face + Hands on Review

I use the Ultraship Ultra-55 for weighing grain.  I’ve owned and used this scale since April of 2009.  It makes for a great grain scale.  Read my Hands On Review

Of course, it has a tare feature.  In my book, that’s a requirement of any scale used for brewing.  Tare lets you zero out the weight of the container you’re using.  You put the container on, hit tare, the scale zeros out.  Now you’re just weighing the thing that you’re interested in.

It has a 55 lb capacity and also displays in lbs and ounces.  Auto off feature and it has a lifetime warranty.  An optional AC adapter is available.

The feature that really sold me on it is… the removable face.  The face of this removes so that you can weigh large items (like buckets of grain) and still easily read the display.

11 lb Capacity Digital Scale

Mosiso - Pro Digital Kitchen Food Scale, 1g to 11 lbs Capacity (Silver)11 lb Capacity Digital Scale by Mosiso

  • The most precise digital scale in its class, with a capacity range from 0.05 oz. to 11 lbs. (1 gram to 5 kg)
  • Oversized buttons for easy operation and a large LCD screen that displays weights in pounds (lbs.), kilograms, grams and ounces
  • 3 Minute Automatic shut-off feature maximizes battery life while giving you time to multitask in the kitchen (2 AAA batteries included)
  • Precise Tare features calculates the net weight of the ingredients (automatically subtracts container weight to calculate the ingredient weight)
  • Finished in a new modern silver base with a chrome finished weighing platform, this compact design is lightweight and stores easily

With a resolution of 1 gram and a capacity of 11 lbs this scale would work for weighing hops, specialty grains and the grain bill for full all grain batches (in multiple batches).  This includes what, in my book, is a required feature… Tare.  Tare essentially allows you to subtract the weight of the container so that you get a true weight of the ingredients.  It goes like this – weigh just the container, hit the tare button and then add your ingredients to the container.  Whammo… just the ingredients.

Available in Silver and Black…
