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.

What I like about this scale… I like that this has the tare function and that it has a 1/100th gram resolution.  That means you should be able to use it for weighing hops, water salts, smaller amounts of specialty grains (200 grams is about 7 ounces) and other brewing ingredients.

Hands On Review: American Weigh AWS-100 Digital Gram Scale – 100g x 0.01g – for homebrew hops & more

american weigh aws100 review

Why a Digital Gram Scale for Homebrewing?

Homebrewers are generally weighing things in two categories.  Moderately large amounts of things – like grain – and smaller amounts of things – like hops and water salts.  Although weighing both types of things involve a scale, they are really wildly different activities.

An accurate gram scale is great for weighing smaller amounts of things like hops, water salts and smaller amounts of other ingredients.

Features to Look for in a Homebrewing Gram Scale

  • Digital readout – most scales are digital now, so this one should not be a problem
  • The Tare Feature – 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.
  • Precision – Look for a minimum of 1/10th gram precision (Example – 1.1 grams) if you’re wanting to weigh hops.  Look for a minimum of 1/100th gram precision (Example. 1.11 grams) if you’re wanting to weigh water salts.
  • Capacity – Higher precision and accuracy generally equate to lower capacity.  That’s okay, just understand what capacity you’re buying.  100 grams = about 3.52 ounces.

Hands on Review: American Weigh Model AWS-100 Digital Gram Scale

This scale has 1/100th gram resolution making it great for accurately weighing hops, small amounts of specialty grains and water salts.  It has a 100 gram (3.52 ounce) capacity.

  • LIGHTWEIGHT KITCHEN SCALE: This digital food scale measures 7.3" x 5.5" x 1.5" and only weighs 1.12 pounds. It's the perfect size for measuring ingredients for your baking and cooking creations.
  • LARGE BOWL: With your purchase, you'll receive a large expansion bowl that can help contain your ingredients while measuring. The bowl can hold fruits, vegetables, coffee, and more!
  • 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.
  • HEAVY-DUTY PLASTIC CONSTRUCTION: Our portable scale has a durable surface that's easy to clean. Place your items directly onto the plastic or place them in the expansion bowl for measuring.

 

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.

What I like about this scale… I like the high resolution with a relatively large (give the 1/100th gram accuracy) capacity.  I like that it has the requisite (in my opinion) tare features and that it uses easy to source AAA batteries [Search AmazonBasics Batteries].  Given the specs of this scale, it should work for weighing hops, water salts, smaller amounts of specialty grains (500 grams is about 17.6 ounces or just over a pound) and other brewing ingredients.

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
