When breweries are pricing based on weight, using a Trade Approved scale is essential. Using unsuitable scale can result in a £1000 fine - yet many breweries may not be aware of this.
Weighing scales are used throughout the brewery processes - from weighing ingredients, to outgoing casks, bags of malt, through to the shipping out of consignment. It’s important then that the scales used are suitable and meet requirements.
For more than 90 years, Marsden has been supplying high quality weighing scales to industry - and we’re a leading supplier of brewery scales, too.
We’ll be attending the SIBA BeerX exhibition alongside other leading suppliers next week - and there you’ll be able to see our products and get weighing advice from members of the Marsden team.
You’ll also be able to pick up a copy of our new, free brewery weighing guide. But if you can’t wait until then, you can download it for free below, too.
This March, Marsden will be at the SIBA BeerX exhibition - the largest dedicated UK trade exhibition for the beer industry.
The show gives you the opportunity to see new scales and brewery favourites - and get advice from members of the Marsden team.
BeerX was so successful last year that organisers have doubled the exhibition space - meaning we’ll be alongside more than 150 exhibitors.
Waterproof scales are vital if your business intends to weigh liquids, operate in damp or dusty environments or weigh outdoors.
At Marsden we have a large range of IP65, IP67 and IP68-rated weighing scales – but exactly what do these ratings mean, and which IP rating is best for what you need? This blog post explains.
(Relatively) fresh from the recent BeerX trade show, organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), we thought it a good time to write a guide to brewery scales. We spoke to dozens of breweries over the three day event, many with different needs and requirements - no two breweries are the same, it appears!
Marsden weighing scales can be found in many breweries now - most choosing the waterproof B-100 Bench Scale. However, there are some breweries who need something a little bigger, some breweries who need a Trade Approved option, and some breweries who just want something small and affordable.
Last week, Marsden was at BeerX - the annual beer festival organised by trade body SIBA.
We used the show, which took place at the Ice Arena in Sheffield, to meet with breweries - including those that already use Marsden scales (who told us how happy they are with them) and brewers who didn’t.
It was also an opportunity to demonstrate how waterproof the B-100 Bench Scale is - making it ideal for the brewing environment!
This week, Marsden will be at BeerX, the annual event for members of the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA). As a member of SIBA, it’s our first time at the show, and it’s our chance to show breweries how the brewing process can be improved with accurate, reliable weighing scales.
At the show, which starts at midday on Wednesday, we’ll be offering SIBA members some generous discounts on the Marsden scales most popular with brewers.
Marsden Weighing Group has been prolific on Twitter of late. The reason? We’re looking for local breweries, and we thought tweeting about beer would be the best way to reach them!
So why are we so keen to get in touch with local real ale brewers? Well, we love real ale - but more importantly, we’ve recently been talking to a number of breweries about weighing solutions for ingredients as well as out-going bottles/kegs of ale.
This got us thinking about how the Marsden range of digital weighing scales has plenty of ideal solutions for brewers - whether you’re talking micro breweries, or larger, mainstream businesses. Subsequently, we listed a number of digital scale solutions in this blog post.
