Weighing Scales for Breweries & Distilleries

Inscale UK stock a wide variety of digital brewing scales perfect for creating, selling and distributing alcohol and spirits.

Our range of brewing scales cater to a range of requirements from pallet and platform scales for large-scale distilleries and brewing companies to trade approved checkweighing and bench scales used in microbreweries.

For industrial breweries, platform scales offer large, durable weighing platforms capable of weighing multiple pallets of goods, barrels of beer and kegs simultaneously by connecting a weighing indicator and utilising parts counting and checkweighing features. Meanwhile, pallet truck scales can easily lift, manoeuvre and weigh pallets prior to placement on distribution lorries or into storage. Stainless steel floor scales such as Adam Equipment's Warrior are IP-rated and easy to clean down after weighing bags of hops and other ingredients.

In contrast, artisan breweries conducting smaller operations in limited spaces are likely to need compact, easy-to-operate scales that can fit on worktop or workbench surfaces. Trade approved bench checkweighing scales can accurately weigh filled bottles to ensure they meet the weight criteria listed on the label to be packed and distributed for sale on supermarket shelves.

Distillery & Brewery Scales Help

Q: What are the best weighing scales for microbreweries?

A: Microbreweries often require weighing scales with trade approvals and percentage weighing features. The percentage weighing function allows multiple ingredients such as hops, barley and flavourings to be weighed individually up to a total of 100%; by weighing in ratios, brewing and distilling businesses can be sure that multiple batches of alcohol retain the same taste, quality and flavour. Trade approved checkweighing scales are also required for ensuring each bottle or cask meets a desired, predefined weight limit prior to sale or distribution. Each bottle needs to weigh the amount stated on the bottle's label to ensure quality control checks and trading standards legislation are met.
