somehow my scale broke last time I was brewing so I need to go buy another before Thursday so online is out.

Anyone know good scales that measure down to say .5oz but then up to at least 3-5lbs.

I saw some fairly good scales at wal-mart and target (since you don't have time for shipping). I believe they sell the one posted above.

All the LHBS around me carry these. It is super nice as it does lbs, oz, lbs and oz, grams, and kg. It has a max capacity of like 18lbs.

If you can find it that would be my rec.

I always recommend checking your local ... uh, "alternative" goods store. They usually have digi's under 20 bucks. They're annoying for bulk grain, but the precision is very nice for hops.

E-bay:70 bucks.

45 pounds accurate to a gram. An Escali Primo does the hops.
