Brix/Specific Gravity Refractometer w/ATC


SKU# 7462

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
A Brix Refractometer that includes a specific gravity scale. You won't have to do conversions between Brix and gravity when measuring the Original Gravity of musts or wort. Measuring final gravity accurately will still take some calculations, as the presence of alcohol does affect the reading.

Best of all, it only requires a few drops of liquid for an accurate reading. No need to lose a whole hydrometer test jar of beer or wine in the process.

Our refractometer comes complete with a screwdriver for calibration, a microfiber cloth for cleaning the prism surface, a pipette for sample collection, and detailed usage instructions.

Check out our Refractometer Calculator, which will allow you to convert Brix to gravity before and during fermentation.

Product Details

A refractometer instantly reads gravity, in Brix, of unfermented wort or fruit juice by measuring the degree that light passing through the sample is bent. Unlike a hydrometer, only a few drops are required for a sample. To use, apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover, and look through the eyepiece while aiming your refractometer at a light source.

The Specific Gravity scale will provide a quick reading of your Original Gravity. Once fermentation has begun and alcohol is present, keep track of the Brix scale and use the Refractometer Calculator for Final Gravity correction.

It is also a great tool for All-Grain Brewing. Easily sample your mash runoff so you know exactly when to stop sparging (typically 2-3 Brix). Then easily take readings before and during the boil to make sure you hit your recipe targets. 

Our refractometers measure from 0-32° Brix, with an accuracy of +/- 0.2° Brix. They also include automatic temperature compensation for temperatures between 50-86° F, which eliminates the need to consult temperature correction charts.

Only thing that I would suggest is to put in a note advising that it's pre-calibrated. Maybe even the link to the video.

It is easy to use and very easy to read. I would highly recommend it! You only need a few drops of liquid.

refractometer , as much fun to use as it is to say!
I really like this tool.quick and easy to use. less wasted beer with smaller samples and less chance of contamination.

A must have on 1 gallon batches and hot wort
When working with 1 gallon batches, A couple drops of wort is all it takes.

Awesome Tool
Makes taking reading so much easier than the standard hydrometer. A must have!!!

Get this now if you're an all grain Brewer.
This is my first refractometer, so I wasn't sure what to expect or what it would even look like peering into the lens. I couldn't be more impressed with the ease of use and accuracy. Made taking gravity readings during mash, pre boil, and post boil an absolute breeze. Allowed me to take a super quick reading of hot wort because the several drops cool quickly, and only needing a few drops means more for me to drink.

Versus hydrometers - same results from smaller sample size, readability, and durability.
I believe a refractometer is a staple for any brewer. I tested its calibration vs my hydrometer and they read exactly the same. When both tools (hydrometer and refractometer) give you the same result you then can look at quality of life to decide for yourself. It needs a much smaller sample size, is easier to read, and presumably less likely to fail (break or lose calibration).

Cannot get an accurate reading
NB had a sale going on a month ago, (spend a certain amount get a free refractometer). So I figured there were a few things I could use and would get this free. I had a beer finished fermenting by the time I had received this, went through the steps of calibrating and seemed like it was already calibrated. checked my beer which had sat in the fermenter 2 weeks and it read 1.029 which was strange it hadn't bubbled in a week so I checked with my hydrometer and that read 1.009. so I kegged it anyway because I have not had a problem before with a beer not finishing and now drinking the beer it finished fine. I brewed another batch this past weekend and again made sure it was calibrated with distilled water and this time it was reading my OG (1.040) lower than my hydrometer (1.050) and what the recipe was supposed to be(1.050). I'm not complaining because I did get it free but it was the only reason I decided to order more stuff was for the deal. ( I did leave both to sit for correct temp)
