balance scales

945 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  hheynow
I have been researching electronic balance scales for use in measuring ingredients for titration and brewing. The Boreal balances at Edmund Scientific caught my eye. I need some advice as to what range of scale is most useful. I think the lower limit probably does not need to be lower than .1 gram. What should the upper limit be?
500g, 1000g, 2000g?
I will also want to use the scale for measuring moisture content in wood for a dry kiln but that might be a topic for a different forum..

Don't mean to hijack this thread but for one gallon of WVO how much methonal and how much lye(KOH or NoAH). Thanks.
I think its easier to do it in 1 or 2 liters, not a gallon. Check this out :

1 litre oil- new or used
NaOH (lye / caustic soda), at least 6g.
--Used as a drain cleaner and can often be found next to the Drano.
Methanol at least 250ml.
--HEET® Gas- Line Antifreeze in the yellow bottle is methanol and readly available in most auto supply stores in the USA.

Hope this helps,

I saw this when I made my test batch. I just hate dealing with metrics. I figured someone would have converted it over to standard form for us mentally challenged persons. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif Thanks.
