I believe it's rated for 72 oz., which would make it 4.5 lb. Not a big deal, since I mostly make 1 lb. batches anyway (although I'm thinking of switching to 2 lb. batches to help improve lye accuracy, and use TOMATO JUICE! )IanT said:is that the one thats rated for 7lbs or 5lbs??
Id say either would work (ive got the 7lb digi) if your going to weigh in small amounts, but if you want to be making big batches...your going to do a lot of weighing!
Why have I never thought of this?? My scale just died due to a nasty spill. :cry:digit said:A nifty tip I read before I started was to cover your scale with plastic wrap.
