Description

A refractometer is used to measure the density of a solution.

Measure the brix level (sugar level) in your grapes with just one drop! The perfect vineyard tool for monitoring ripening grapes. We also use them after the crush to get an exact brix reading. A refractometer cannot be directly used after fermentation has taken place as alcohol distorts the reading, however a conversion calculator (MS Excel based) is available from MoreWine! on request.

Refractometer Statistics: Our refractometer is hand held with a metal body, flexible eye piece and rubber grip. It features a 0 to 32% Brix scale with .2% resolution and ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensation). Traditional refractometers without ATC are calibrated to work at 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The ATC function allows you to use the refractometer in an ambient temperature range of 50-86 degrees Fahrenheit (10-30 Celsius.) Because your sample is just one drop, and will quickly adjust to the temperature of the refractometer, the temperature of the sample is irrelevant. Our unit also comes with a manual calibration knob that is secured with a lock nut. To calibrate place one drop of water (distilled water is preferred, but not required) on the testing platform and adjust to zero if necessary.

Works great and easy to keep clean
Easy to read with proper lighting. I like the dual scale with both brix and gravity saves me from having to calculate one or the other.

Great Device
Fantastic tool to have. A bit of a learning curve. Didn't know you had to adjust alcohol in fermented wort. Found the tool on BeerSmith to calculate the adjustment. Works like a charm

Beats Hydrometer
Quick gravity readings without taking a big sample. I haven't touch my hydrometer in years.

Can't get any better than this. Easy to read, durable, dependable and accurate. I use it in the field and in the shop regularly and check it against other instruments occasionally and do the math. Had it for four seasons now and still ticking. Will buy another when it passes.

works well
works well but wish the instructions mentioned that you cant use it for post fermentation. I probably would not have bought it had I known.

Like It
I really like this dual scale. T'was always a bit of a pain to have to do the conversion.

economy tool that should replace most hydrometer in being kits.
After a few years of owning and using this I've found it's great to use a smaller sampler to find the data you're liking for, but I have also found this to not be very accurate and getting different numbers from same batch even same small sampling.
I'll check with h2o between samples and the water will be accurate. So in the end just take the bad with the good. It's reasonably priced, easy to use, just sometimes it's not very accurate.

Very Handy for All Grain Brewing
This handy tool is great for checking your pre-boil gravity after sparging. It is accurate as long as you read the instructions and calibrate it properly. Re-calibrate from time to time to be safe. The first time I used it (after calibrating) I compared the refractometer reading with a hydrometer reading and they were identical!

LOVE IT!
I was hesitant buying this as many of the reviews regarded the inaccuracy but I have tested it several times against my hydrometer and it has been +/- no more than .002 every time. This is a MUST HAVE if you are making the step up to all grain.

Side tip, this are great to use when making a starter as well! No more guessing at your ratios.

Good tool for the price
Good price for a dual scale refractometer, holds calibration well and reads accurately. Overall construction is good, and the fitted case is a nice touch for protection. Easy to read with a bright light source, can even take photos of readings with my cell phone camera.
