- Includes – A set of tweezers and calibration weights for easy recalibration; This will ensure precise weighing of your precious possessions
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, possible homebrew applications include weighing hops and water salts. Note that 20 grams is about .7 ounces.
