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, it should work for weighing hops, water salts and smaller amounts of other brewing ingredients.  100 grams is about 3.52 ounces.

A smaller scale can work for all grain brewers, as you can weigh any amount of grain in multiple batches, but if you’re a large batch all grain brewer or regularly brew all grain batches with larger grain bills you may want to consider a two scale approach, one more precise scale for hops and a larger capacity scale for larger grain bills.  A couple scales to consider:

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

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 ingreidents.

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.
