I built a portable scale using a luggage scale...probably accurate to within a pound or so, but it repeats. Takes about a minute a hive to weigh. I check them once a week and every 3 or 4 days during the flow. I find the info pretty cool. I took a reading today and one of the hives gained 31 lbs since Saturday!
