Ounce Scale Pound ScaleTo accurately measure the quantity of ingredients you add to your beer, your home brewery should ideally be equipped with two scales. A fairly accurate ounce or gram scale like the one shown on the left can be used for ingredients that are added in small quantities. For measuring grain or dry malt you'll need a larger pound or kilogram scale like the one shown on the right. Each of the scales should have the ability to be zeroed or adjusted to zero with an empty container setting on them. That way your measurement will be accurate and not reflect the weight of the container. On the digital scale on the left this is easily accomplished. As you can see on the right, I've had to pre-adjust the scale to the weight of the container I use to hold grain, thus the less than zero weight shown without the container.
