What Does Tare Mean? 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 (1/100th gram) given the relatively large capacity (500 grams, about 17.6 ounces, or just over a pound).  I like that it has the requisite (in my opinion) tare feature, that it has a stainless top 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 and other brewing ingredients.

What I like about this scale…  This has a 5,000 gram capacity.  That figures to about 176 ounces or about 11 lbs.  It also features a .1 gram resolution.  Given the relatively high capacity, that’s a lot of accuracy.  Typically resolution goes down as capacity goes up.  I also like that it has the tare feature, that it features a stainless top and that it uses easy to find AAA batteries.  Given the specifications it should work for weighing gram, hops, other brew ingredients and more.

The removable face on this scale makes it easy to weigh larger items… like buckets of grain.  This has a readability of 170g / 6oz.  That should work great for weighing base grains and larger amounts of specialty grains for most full batch (5 gallon+) brewers.  If you’re looking for something for smaller amounts (hops, water salts, smaller amounts of specialty grains, etc) consider the AWS-100 – Hands on Review
