  • LCD Screen: The digital scale's backlit LCD screen makes numbers viewable and easy to read—even in dim lighting. Thanks to high-precision sensors, you'll get an accurate measurement every time.
  • Built-in Cover: Keep your electronic food scale safe with the built-in plastic cover. It will keep your scale looking like new and protect it from scratches, bumps, and everyday wear and tear.

600 gram capacity, .1 (1/10th) gram resolution. Stainless top.

What is the 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, I think it would work well for hops and smaller amounts of grain and other ingredients.

More About Mosaic

Though just released in 2012, Mosaic® hops have become a high-demand aroma hop. Even with a high alpha content, the intense aroma of fresh pine, mango, blueberry and citrus are the main event when you brew Mosaic® hops. Generally used in Pale Ales, IPAs, and Stouts, so far Mosaic has been found to make a great addition to any recipe.

Announcing: LalBrew Farmhouse Yeast at MoreBeer

LalBrew® Farmhouse™ Yeast - Lallemand

LalBrew Farmhouse™ is a non-diastatic hybrid that has been selected to make saison and farmhouse style beers. This product is the result of the research and development work of Renaissance Bioscience Corp. (Vancouver BC, Canada) in partnership with Lallemand Brewing. LalBrew Farmhouse™ was selected using the most advanced breeding techniques. The Renaissance research team used classical and non-GMO methods to remove the STA1 gene, responsible for the diastatic activity of Saison yeasts. Care was taken to retain normal brewing sugar utilization to produce dry saisons. Additionally, the patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) ensures that the strain will not produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore enhancing the saison yeast aroma characteristics.

  • Beer Styles: Farmhouse style ales
  • Aroma: Clove, pepper, fruit notes
  • Attenuation: High
  • Fermentation Range: 68-86°F (20-30°C)
  • Flocculation: Low
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 13% ABV

Viking Pale Ale Malt is the perfect base malt for traditional Pale Ales, IPA’s, Ambers, Browns, Porters, Stouts, etc.. As a traditional english style pale ale malt it has a high degree of modification making it very easy to mash.

The rich maltiness adds layers of flavor to any ale.

Viking Malt is one of the largest malting companies in the world and the largest roaster of specialty malts. They are the main malt supplier to the famous Carlsberg brewery. Viking is not well known in the USA because they haven’t had good US distribution. Because MoreBeer! and MoreBeer! Pro is directly importing thousands of tons of malt we are stoked to offer you Northern European malt quality from one of the best malting companies in the world at lower than domestic malt pricing.

Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where distinctive Nordic barley are sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The advantage of northern European malt is lower protein levels, good kernel size, and less amount of pesticides used due to the cold winters.

Extract fine % – dm min. 80.0
Color °L – 2.1-3.2
