When it comes to distilling and brewing, scales can be as vital to the process as hops or grains. For example, without accurate weighing scales, the final product could change dramatically due to weighing inconsistencies.
In this blog post, we cover the key benefits provided by weighing scales to breweries and distilleries.
Trade Approved scales are essential if you’re a brewer - if you’re pricing based on weight with scales not legal, you could risk a fine.
Our survey earlier this summer revealed that there wasn’t adequate awareness amongst breweries - 88% of respondents believed there wasn’t enough awareness in the industry with regards weighing laws.
When breweries are pricing based on weight, using a Trade Approved scale is essential. Using unsuitable scale can result in a £1000 fine.
Weighing scales are used throughout the brewery processes - from weighing ingredients, to outgoing casks, bags of malt, through to the shipping out of consignment.
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.
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.
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?
(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!
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.
