Etekcity 11lb/5kg Digital Scale w/Stainless Platform – $8.99 w/Instant Coupon

11 lb capacity Digital Scale by Etekcity.  11 lb/5 kg capacity. .01 oz/ 1 gram resolution. Stainless steel weighting platform.  Tare function.  Auto off (after 2 minutes).  Uses (easy to find) AAA batteries – Search AmazonBasics Batteries.

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.

Use to weigh hops, grain, other brewing ingredients and more.
