Conclusions

The Anvil Large Platform scale was designed with home brewing in mind.  It’s well made, accurate and looks great.  It has some thoughtful touches and sports all of the features that an all grain brewer needs to easily and accurately weigh grain.

  • Compact and convenient: this scale is as user-friendly as it is precise. An extra-wide, soft plastic handle provides a comfortable grip, even when measuring heavy items
  • Bonus measuring tape: don’t just measure weight- measure length! the included measuring tape is ideal for measuring items in either cm or ft (up to 3 ft)

Large screen, 2″ long LED readout.  600 lb/300 kg capacity with graduation increments of .2lb/.1kg.  Autozero, Tare, Hold and Auto Power Off.

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.
