Digital Total Dissolved Solids [TDS] Meter – check brewing water and filter performance – $7.99 + free shipping

LCD Digital TDS Meter Tester Water Quality Ppm Purity Filter (TDS Tester)

TDS Meter with LCD Display.  TDS meters measure Total Dissolved Solids in water.

TDS meters can are helpful for brewing if you’re using a RO filter or if you purchase RO (reverse osmosis) water for brewing.  If you’re using an RO filter a TDS meter tells you how effective your filter is and can help you know if your filters need to be replaced.  If you buy RO water, a TDS meter can let you know what you’re getting as some water processors add minerals back for flavor.  A TDS meter will allow you to make sure you’re getting what you want.

RO water can be built up to reflect the exact water profile you’re looking for.  See: Water by John Palmer and Colin Kaminski

SKYROKU Elite Digital Pocket Scale,100g/0.01g Weigh Scale with a 100g Stainless Steel Calibration Weight and a Tweezers, 2 AAA Batteries (Black)

SKYROKU Scales Digital Weight Grams, 100g 0.01g Pocket Jewelry Scale, Pocket Portable Scale with LCD Backlit Display, Tare Function, Auto Off, Stainless Steel & Slim Design

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 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.
