Brix/Specific Gravity Refractometer w/ATC

42 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.

Accurate and Easy Review by Nick
Rating
I don't know why I waited so long to buy a refractometer. For a long time I was in the dark ages trying to measure my pre and post boil gravity using a traditional hydrometer waiting for the wort to cool down and ultimately getting inaccurate data or sometimes forgetting to come back and record the data. The refractometer makes this step super quick, easy, and pretty accurate! Do yourself a favor and buy one of these :) (Posted on 10/25/13)
Excellent Quality Review by Leon

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)
