Digital Scale, 500 Gram Capacity, .01 Gram Resolution – Lightning Deal

AMIR Digital Kitchen Scale, 500g/ 0.01g Pro Cooking scale with Back-Lit LCD Display, Accuracy Pocket Food Scale, 6 Units, Auto Off, Tare, PCS Function, Stainless Steel, Batteries Included

AMIR Digital Kitchen Scale, 500g/ 0.01g Pro Cooking scale with Back-Lit LCD Display, Accuracy Pocket Food Scale, 6 Units, Auto Off, Tare, PCS Function, Stainless Steel, Batteries Included

Range: 0.01g (0.001oz) to 500g. Stainless steel platform, ABS frame.  Blue backlit LCD display.  Displays in g, tl, oz, ct, and gn.  Includes two trays.  Product Dimensions: 4″ x 5″ x 3/4″. Platform Dimensions: 4″x4″, 

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, smaller amounts of specialty grains (500 grams is about 17.6 ounces or just over a pound) and other brewing ingredients.

4/21/18 7 AM Central: This is set to be discounted as an Amazon Lightning Deal starting at 7:40 AM Central for Prime Members and 30 minutes later for all. Shipping to most US addresses should also be free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Price, shipping and availability can change quickly. Check the product page for current price, description and availability.

Note: Lightning Deals are limited time and quantity deals.  Check the product page for current price, description and availability.

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:
