I use the ultraship ultra 55. You can get it through morebeer!, and it can weight lbs for grain, ounces for hops, and grams for yeast. That covers everything I need. I've checked its accuracy with all and am pleased with the results.

Thanks. I went with something similar to this for half the price.
What?

I’m a sucker for price and good reviews. Code for cheap and lazy...
I have that scale also. It works well, especially for the price.

That's great! Money saved on a grain scale can be money spent on grain! Nice find.

I use a Rapala fish scale for bulk grains and a common digital kitchen scale for hops and small amounts of specialty grains.

I have used kitchen scales for hops but I prefer a postal scale for grains.
