Tilt™ - Blue Digital Hydrometer and Thermometer
The Tilt Digital 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!
First use of the device is going great. Brewed a week ago and have able to monitor and gage progress with ease. It is a high initial brew starting at 1.075 and is just getting down to a stable point. the tilt takes away the uncertainty and guessing. Also the testing. Very pleased with the device.
I loved the Tilt and plan on purchasing more as needed. The app got hung up and it took 2 days to get a resolution which ended up requiring deleting and reinstalling the app. I hope the issues have been resolved for my next batch of wine. Great concept, accurate measurements. Love it!
Purchased for my son-in-law for Christmas. It arrived in good shape as far as I can tell.He will let you know if anything is not right after Christmas.
It was delightful to drop the tilt in my beer and read the temp and gravity on my phone. But I also had my BrewJacket temperature controller in at the same time and it seems to have crashed. I haven't sorted it out yet, but it may be that the electronics of the 2 devices are incompatible.
When I first opened the tilt I placed in a water to test and it read 1.000, which is expected. It's now in the the fermenter and I cross referenced it with the refractometer and it was pretty much dead on. The temperature is accurate as well. Now that it's fermenting I can see the gravity dropping in real time. I love this thing. Highly recommend.
