I use a regular old postage scale. I dont think you can get much cheaper.



You sacrifice some accuracy, but it gets me by.

TBH, a headshop I think. But they sell them all over the place. I think I saw them at the post office once, or look in an office supply store. The pic came from amazon, so I guess they have them there.

I simply called the neighbor and they have one I can borrow :). One less thing to buy!

How do I explain weighing "hops" in a plastic baggie late at night to the wife with that postal scale. Fairly conspicuous;)

LOL! I have one of those scales and made a joke about it being leftover from my dorm around a bunch of people at my last brew party. No one got it so I'm assuming they didn't have as much fun in college as I did! :eek:
