This digital weight scale is for better cooking, baking, tracking intake, weight loss and postage.

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.

3,000 grams is about 6.6 lbs.  Considering that and the .1 gram resolution, consider using this scale for hops, smaller amounts of grains/specialty grains, other brewing ingredients and more.

  • User-friendly: Data lock function holds the weight for convenient reading, auto-off saves power for maximum battery life, over load indication avoids damage, low battery indication lets you know when to replace the two AAA batteries (included), 63″ built-in tape offers easy measurement, 3 weight display options provides you with the ability to display weight in LB, KG, OZ
  • Nickel Plated Hook: Includes a nickel plated hook, rust-resistant and abrasion-resistant, and it provides an alternative way of holding your catch securely and allows you to easily release the fish when you’re done weighing it

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.
