Tilt™ - Red Digital Hydrometer and Thermometer
The Tilt Wireless Hydrometer and Thermometer is at the cutting edge of new digital devices made specifically for the homebrewing community. This free-floating gadget acts as both a real-time gravity testing hydrometer and thermometer from inside your fermenter during fermentation.
Being able to check your fermentation status from your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Tilt Pi and most Bluetooth 4.0+ Bluetooth devices means virtually no susceptibility to contamination or oxygen pickup in your fermenter. Data can be saved automatically to the cloud with free Google Sheets template or your own, favorite 3rd party cloud platform.
Tilt comes calibrated and fully-assembled with a pre-installed battery. Download the free app, sanitize the unit, drop into the fermenter and start tracking your readings with your synced device.
Multiple Unit Users: If using more than one Tilt Hydrometer and Thermometer at a time, you must use a different color Tilt for each batch. Apps will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color. Northern Brewer offers 8 different colors for multiple, simultaneous fermentations.
No additional information.
Range: Ability to send data through large, thick-walled fermenters.
Precision: Specific gravity is accurate within +/- 0.002 if brewing in the range of .990 - 1.120. Thermometer is accurate within +/- 1 degree fahrenheit.
Universal: Works in most standard carboys, corny kegs, refrigerators, stainless steel fermenters, even under pressure!
Well I ordered the Tilt Hydrometer and used it for the first time about 10 days ago. I checked the calibration with water and saw it was fine then put it into my new beer and got a reading right away. It was great. It was in the fermenter for a week and and now in the Carboy. The reading got down to 1.011 in the fermenter but in the Carboy it goes from 1.011 to 1.012 back a forth. Still very low. I have the Tilt set up using a Raspberry Pi to put the reading on the net and watch with a web browser. It works great and the software is free for Tilt. Great product. Can not live without it now.
It works great
Only down fall is you have to have a Bluetooth monitor device next to it all the time in order to get consistent readings.
The tilt works pretty well. I used my traditional hydrometer side by side with new Tilt and they were both about the same OG and FG. I like the fact that the TILT records the data into a Google spreadsheet so I can track fermentation and know when it's more or less finished.
