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.

Possible homebrew uses include weighing hops, smaller amounts of grain and other brewing ingredients.  1,000 grams is about 35.27 ounces or 2.2 lbs.

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.
