  • 2*AAA batteries, 1 * 100g stainless steel calibration weight and 1 * Tweezers help you put the powder or small items on the scale, which will meet all your demands if you purchase this gram scale.
  • ACCURATE AND SENSITIVE   High precision professional grade digital sensor system provides you with instant and accurate results from 0.05g to 100g using two decimal places. You will be able to confidently measure jewelry, food, medicines and more with this micro sized precision scale.
  • 4 DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS   The mini food scale includes all the necessary unit measurements for easy weight translations, convert measurement between in g / oz / ozt / dwt . Convenient for you to choose the proper unit by pressing the mode button.
  • COMPACT DESIGN & BACK-LIT   Minimalistic and compact design (Product Dimensions: 3″ x 5″ x 3/4″) make it a portable pocket scale to take everywhere. Built with a clear blue back-lit LCD screen, enables you to read easily and clearly.
  • PROTECTIVE COVER   The jewelry scale designed with a stainless steel platform and a protective flip cover. It is crafted to be strong, durable, and pocket-size for many of your portable weighing needs, such as food, tablets, powder, gemstones, coins, jewelry, gold, etc. What a useful pocket scale!

 

Tare Function: Tare allows you to subtract the weight of the container you’re using to get a true weight of the contents.  Add your empty container to the scale and press the tare button.  This zeros out the scale.  Now add the thing you’re weighing and the scale displays just the weight of the contents of your container.  In my opinion the tare function is essential for any good homebrewing scale.

Given the specs of this scale, it should work for weighing hops, water salts and smaller amounts of other brewing ingredients.  100 grams is about 3.52 ounces.

What I like about this scale… I like the stainless steel top, the fact that is has the tare feature and the fact that it uses easy to find [Search AmazonBasics AAA] AAA batteries.  The tare feature allows you to zero out the scale with your container on it so you can weigh just the contents of the container.  If you’re looking for a scale for water salts, I think you should look for a gram scale with a higher resolution.  Given this scale’s specs it should work for grain, hops and other brewing ingredients.

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:

This has a huge, in my opinion, capacity of 440 lb.  I also like the fact that it has the TARE feature.  That basically allows you to subtract the weight of your container.  I also like the fact that it features a remote display.  That means it won’t be blocked by something like a bucket that you may use to weigh your grain.
