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.

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.

How do I adjust my reading post-fermentation?

If one of the reasons people like using this for checking wort SG is that it consumes only a few drops of wort rather than a whole thief's worth, why can't we replace the wort, if we've used a sanitized thief, test jar, and hydrometer?

PS: I have not yet even ordered any equipment to begin brewing; I'm trying to learn as much about what products people use in addition to the techniques and processes.

Best Answer: Some people do replace their sample wort back into the fermentor, with the proper sanitation technique there is theoretically not much risk. However each extra step you handle your wort can increase the risk of contamination.

If I have this, do I still need a hydrometer?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: A hydrometer is still a good tool to have as you learn to use your refractometer properly. It's also a good way to confirm your refractometer's results.
