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.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 【Extreme Accuracy】: The Dr.meter Fishing Scale can weigh both small and large catches alike, from a mere 0.2 lbs. to a jaw dropping 110 lbs.! The state of the art weight sensor provides precise measurements and can convert from lb. to oz. or kg.
  • 【Bonus Built-in Tape】: Maybe you also want to know the length of your catch besides weight. We’ve got it covered! The included measuring tape is ideal for measuring items in either cm or ft. (up to 3 ft.).
  • 【Stainless Steel Hook】: Crafted from premium stainless steel, the large and durable hook concealed in the back slot is convenient for you to hook up and remove from fish’s mouth, luggage and everything in between.
  • 【Endless Possibility】: The Dr. meter Electronic Fishing Scale boasts the specialized functions like weighing unit conversion, data lock, and auto-off function, definitely good news to the amateur and avid fishermen alike!

Possible Uses: Weigh kegs, propane tanks and bags of grain.  If you know the tare weight of the keg or a tank you can estimate how much beer or propane remains.  Tare weight would be the weight of the empty keg or tank – sometimes printed on the side, otherwise you can weigh it empty.  A good estimate for the weight per gallon of beer would be the weight of a gallon of water – about 8.34 lbs per gallon of beer.

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:

This, in my opinion, has a huge capacity of 440 lb.  I also like the fact that it has the TARE feature.  That basically allows you to subtract the weight of your container.  I also like the fact that it features a remote display.  That means it won’t be blocked by something like a bucket that you may use to weigh your grain.
