Description

Designed for homebrewing, the Tilt hydrometer lets you instantly read your brew's specific gravity and temperature on your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet or Tilt Pi. Most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices will work with the Tilt. You can then optionally log data to the cloud using their free Google Sheets template or other 3rd party cloud platforms.

Tilt's goal is to help homebrewers brew better beer. The Tilt hydrometer allows you to check the specific gravity and temperature of your beer while it's fermenting, without ever having to open your fermenter or pour out any of your precious brew. This makes brewing more consistent and easier to track.

Here are some of the new features of the Tilt:

  • Range: Better reception and range. With the increased transmission power your Tilt will send data through larger, thicker-walled fermenters.
  • Precision: Upgraded sensors. With an improved temperature sensor and accelerometer your Tilt will operate with more precision.  
  • Efficiency: Reduced power consumption so more brews, less battery changing.
  • New Look: Newly designed custom circuit board and harness.

If using multiple Tilt hydrometers for different batches of fermenting beer you must use a different color for each batch. The app will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to go with a pre-installed battery that lasts 12-24 months depending on usage. Just download the free app, sanitize your Tilt, drop it in your fermenter, and start taking readings with your phone, tablet, or Tilt Pi.

The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt's range of 0.990 to 1.120. The thermometer is accurate +/- 1°F (+/- 0.5°C).

Download the free Tilt app at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or get the free Tilt Pi download.

To measure things
Matthew H on Sep 9, 2021
Read several reviews, like gadgets, like the idea of continuous monitoring of fermentation

Second one. I did note that it reads lower than my refractometer initially, but I am pretty sure this is due to the stratification that naturally occurs in the carboy when the wort is still waiting for the yeast to kick in. Once there is fermentation stirring up the solution it tracks right along. Also noticed that it reads a few degrees higher at the start, presumably for the same reason. That also comes into line once fermentation kicks off.

I used a red one with the club, and it works very well! I can check fermentation on a google sheets document!
Stephen H on Apr 21, 2021
Loved my first one and the control it gives me over my brew and integration with Brewfather app. Will continue to buy/use these until i decide to go with a different brew system where this information is incorporated.

Do the exterior parts of this product (parts which contact beer) contain BPA or phthalates?
Matthew Reardon on Jul 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Do not know. It’s a hard clear plastic cylinder, The cap is a clear flexible plastic and the seal is some kind of white rubber. Do not know what they are made of.

Love it.
I love being able to track the progress of my fermentation without taking samples or opening the fermenter. Worth the cost to me.

Love the real-time data
The Tilt performed exactly as advertised. The real-time feedback on fermentation temperature and gravity is really useful. The report with the Sheets app is great for those of us who love data.

Works great !
Works great! I like the logging feature, but the Tilt only logs when it is connected to a phone. Most people cannot leave their phone next to the fermenter for weeks at a time. It would be nice if the device logged SG and temp internally then transferred the data when the Tilt connected to a phone. My guess this was done to keep costs down. I would happily pay another $20-$40 for the internal logging feature. Otherwise, the device is well designed. It is nice to see how the SG changes over time without having to sample my precious beer!

This thing works great! I got the Tilt and the PLAATO To try side-by-side and the Plato I could never get to work. Buy the tilt!

I love the fact that I can just drop it in and check it every day through Bluetooth the only knock on it is that it does not have Wi-Fi capability hook up yet so I have to be close by with my phone to check it other than that as the technology develops I think it will get better very pleased with it though takes a lot of guesswork out of your beginning gravity and final gravity

Great addition to your brew kit.
I was a little hesitant to spend the $$ on this but it is worth every penny. Download the app for your phone and keep track of your fermentation. Now I want another one so I can monitor multiple beers at the same time. That means I need another fermentation chamber…….

Love this tool to give accurate temp and SG
One star less just because you have to be pretty close to fermenter for Bluetooth connection. So nice to see the SG without losing any wort. Make sure to validate calibration with distilled water before using

Using for the first time and it is right on. Compared readings against hydrometer and thermometer. Love being able to get my readings on my phone and the integration with Brewfather.

Great tech toy for brewers
This my second Tilt. I love them. Connected to a web api, and monitoring becomes simple...

Cool but flawed
OK, let’s be honest, as beer gadgets go, this one is pretty cool...in concept. The ability to track fermentation parameters in real time is real cool. However, not all of those parameters are that accurate. The temperature seems spot-on and is really helpful. The gravity though, at least on my model, has been way off. The first time I used it it read OG 12 points lower than my refractometer and glass hydrometer showed (I always check with both). The instructions are sparse so it was only after fumbling around with the equally sparse app did I realize I could calibrate it (even though it comes factory calibrated). But even after calibrating in water it still reads about 5 points low. So super handy for timing a diacetyl rest and just tracking fermentation, but by no means perfect. And for the price I was expecting more accuracy. But I do like it and will continue to use it. Will I purchase a second one? Maybe not.
