Tilt™ - Pink 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.
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!
This has transformed my ability to brew. No need to sacrifice beer or open up my fermenter for gravity readings. It gives me my wort temp and gravity at the second. If you really want to be cool, leave a Bluetooth device near it and set up google sheets to chart and check your beer anywhere.
So far so good. Dropped it in FV while cooling wort after boil. Great to be able to see Temp handsfree control fluid flows. It's floating around now inside the fridge since yesterday. Took a bit of tinkering with my inkbird relay to get the fridge temp stabilized with wort temp without producing big swings. Great solution for a nerdy brewer if you have the spare cash.
I love it! Every brewer needs one!
Exactly what I needed. Reduced the risk of contaminating the beer while checking for SG using the hydrometer or collecting samples. The Tilt website had instructions on setting it up to send reports to a cloud or in my case to my Gmail account using sheet. I setup it up using my son’s cell that he does not use and connected to the wifi. Now I can check on my SG through the cloud. I bought the blue and the yellow too. The yellow is setup on my Merlot. It does not really what color, as long as they are different.
I connect my Tilt to a TiltPi and get a current graph every 15 minutes. Seems accurate. Fantastic.
