Brix/Specific Gravity Refractometer w/ATC

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.

Excellent Quality Review by Leon
Rating
I got this refractometer for sever reasons: 1) I have obtained different reading using two different hydrometers while testing the same wort; 2) I'm new to this game and based on previous reviews by others, this was a must have item; and 3) did I mention that I need all the help I can get?

Great product. I would recommend you invest in this piece of equipment. Also, it will spare some wort/wine. (Posted on 9/26/13)
beer saver! Review by Shawn

Incredibly easy to use - calibration was dead-on out of the box.

I play with alot of 1 gallon batches, so the ability to take DROPS of wort instead of OUNCES to get OG measurements is a big plus to me. Brix conversion is relatively simple as there are a number of conversion programs out there to do the work for you!

The only downside is I no longer have a 2-3 oz sample to savor after I get my gravity readings! (Posted on 9/15/13)
Making life simpler, and wasting less wort Review by levi

I wanted one of these for a while, but couldn't justify dropping $50 when I already own multiple hydrometers. When NB put together the package deal where you got a free refractometer with the purchase of a steel head pump, I was all over it. I see a lot of reviews that said they paid too much, is free too much?

I love it. It's simple to use and easy to read and in the long run you waste less wort. (Posted on 9/12/13)

Much easier to use Review by Brian

I have a hydrometer but I never used it because it just wasn't very convenient and I have come across varying correction factors for temperature so I didn't really trust it. I admit, I have not cross checked my refractometer with distilled water or against other devices but this is easy to read and MUCH easier to use. I will certainly be using it in the future.

Homebrewer Must Have Review by Russell

I dealt with the hydrometer for years and finally broke down and bought this refractometer. With the hydrometer I felt like I was always guessing at the gravity readings due but with the refractometer I feel that I'm getting pretty spot on.

NOTE: NB says that these are calibrated before they leave the factory; however, I had to calibrate mine when it reached my house. It was really easy so it wasn't a big deal. I would recommend to other homebrewers. (Posted on 8/26/13)

Cool Tool Review by Mark

I like it. It is simple to use. In fact, I have friends that had never used a refractometer before that were able to pick it right up and figure it out. Glad to have that tool in my tool belt. (Posted on 8/20/13)
