American Weigh Scales Black Blade Digital Pocket Scale, BL-1KG-BLK 1000 by 0.1 G by American WeighMore Info
- Multiple Weighing Units: Weighs in grams, ounces, grains, and carats to allow for multiuse purposes.
- Convenient to Transport Size: With its lid on, it fits comfortably in your pocket. The scale is 3.8" x by 0.8" tall. Comes with two expandable lids.
- Unique Engineering Design: so named for the section of the body which swings out to reveals a lighted display, the on/off button, the Tare button, and the Mode button.
- Unparalleled Accuracy: accuracy to 10th of a gram with flexible measurements and small capacity
- Quality Guaranteed: All AWS scales are backed by a powerful 10 year warranty
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.
