41 Review(s)

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.

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.

Good for OG only Review by Brad Brewer
Rating
WARNING: Only use this device for measuring the OG of your wort. After it ferments and alcohol is present, you need to read the FG in Brix, and then use the handy calculator provided above (or a hydrometer). I was getting almost 0.010 too high on my FG and didn't know why at first. (Posted on 1/13/15)
Don't waste money on a hydrometer Review by Jim

I've been brewing for about a year. I've used a hydrometer since batch 2. Using a hydrometer is such a PITA. Every time I've used it, I despise pulling the wort I just spent so long brewing out of the pot to test the sugars. Then, I can either risk an infection, or dump out my sample. When brewing small batches, this is a lose-lose situation. Plus, I broke one hydrometer while taking a sample. They are fragile, and worthless.

This refractometer is amazing. I've used it once, but it seems solid and a much better investment. I'm mad at myself for not buying one earlier. Save yourself the time and money and buy one of these now. (Posted on 1/2/15)
Must-Have Tool for Brewing Review by Michael
Rating
This is so easy to use and only requires a drop or two of wort (direct SG estimate from device) or beer (SG and ABV estimates using Northern Brewer web-based calculator) that I can't believe it took me this long to get one. I absolutely love it. I bought a bag of 100 disposable, 3-mL pipettes from Amazon to grab my samples. (Posted on 7/20/14)
Simplification Review by Michael
Rating
The Brix has totally simplified my brew day and lessened the task of cleaning and sanitizing simply to garner a OG and FG. I appreciate time saved and simplicity of the equipment. This is a definite buy for those who have progressed into brewing often, and even those just getting started. It is much more simple that hydrometer use. (Posted on 1/30/14)

great product Review by Fabio

I brew small batches and I'm happy to use only a few drops of wort on the refractometer instead of filling the hydrometer and waste beer. Checking the gravity takes only a few seconds and makes the brewing session easier. (Posted on 1/4/14)
Great Refractometer at a good price. Review by Brad
Rating
Used this today brewing my Whitehouse honey porter extract kit and it worked great. Its nice to take a gravity reading without wasting enough wort to float a hydrometer. All this uses is a couple drops of wort and is much easier to read than trying to guess the gravity because of bubbles in the hydrometer test tube. (Posted on 1/2/14)

A Must Purchase For Every Homebrewer Review by Michael
Rating
If you don't already have one of these you should definitely stop waiting and pick it up already. Simple in concept and in its use. No more large sampling and potentially wasting of beer in order to get an accurate reading, you just need a couple drops. (Posted on 12/20/13)
