After finally calling the local water authority, talking to the guy in the lab and getting him to fax me my actual water report, I'm taking the leap, after almost 3 years of brewing, to real, calculated water adjustments for individual recipes.
So yesterday, I was messing with JP's mash adjustment excel spreadsheet and figured out that, for my BDSA, I should add 9 grams of baking soda and 1.5 grams of calcium chloride to my mash (my RA is really low!), but I was having a hard time measuring grams on my 11 lb capacity OXO scale...nice as it may be.
So I'm wondering if anyone has experience with, for instance, the Blade scale from American Weigh. I found one at Amazon for pretty cheap
, and it says it's accurate to 0.1g.
My only thought is, even though it says it's by American Weigh, it looks different than the one on their website
, and is a lot cheaper. Yeah, it's only 400g capacity rather than 600g, but I don't need a whole lot of cap. here. Is this an impostor? If not, is this a good scale for measuring salts? I would assume so...
