Jewelry scale with 0.01 gram resolution
We use a jewelry scale with 0.01 gram resolution (shown in picture) to measure salt additions accurately.
Most standards scales have at most a +/- 1 gram resolution, which is simply not accurate enough for our needs when measuring salt additions as an average 5 to 10 gallon home brew batch will usually only require a few grams of salts. You could easily end up doubling the amount of salts required without knowing it.
A jewelry scale is also perfect for measuring out hops and dry yeast. We use a larger capacity scale to measure grain.
While our jewelry scale cannot be calibrated, we use a calibration weight kit (10mg to 50g) to check our scale accuracy from time to time to make sure it hasn't drifted. We've had our inexpensive scale for many years now and it's still perfectly accurate.
