Tilt™ - Orange 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!
I decided to connect my Tilt with the Brewfather app, and the combination of apps gives me a very complete view of how the fermentation is progressing. By itself, Tilt works well, but when coupled with one of their suggested third party apps, and a dedicated tablet or device, it will give you a decent amount of information. I also tested the calibration of the temperature sensor as well as the hydrometer, and both were spot on. I will definitely buy another one of these soon!
The tilt is nothing short of breathtaking. Ease of use and calibration is excellent. This allows you to monitor the gravity of your beer through the fermentation process without exposing the beer to o2 and contamination. Also makes it so you don't waste precious brew in the hydrometer tube.
Needs range improvement when used inside a steel fermentation device you need to be right next to it to get the signal
Great unit, once calibrated keeps track is SP in fermenting container without samples
great way to track fermentation, i had to by another so i can track 2 beers at once.
Great device to check SG, much quicker and more sanitary than a conventional hydrometer.
