$10 Digital Scale on Amazon
« on: August 09, 2012, 06:57:24 PM »
It's hop harvest season and there's a sale on this! Thought I'd spread the word because I've been on the hunt for one lately and found this. Great deal!

What is the resolution for that scale? For my kitchen scale I have a cheapo digital from walmart that'll take 6# but has a 2g resolution. Which is irksome for weighing hops and salts. But it's what the brewery has been using for the last 5 years! ::)

Got fed up and ordered this on Wednesday http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012LOQUQ/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 for hops and salts. I'm also planning on using it in my sausage-making endeavors which often requires weighing to the 10th of a gram.

That's probably what you'd need to weigh out hops. Which is the most most folks need.
