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!
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.
Works exactly as advertised. My SS Brewtech Chronical sits in my basement and I can usually get some readings from my first floor kitchen. Is it expensive? A little... but for us 5-10 gallon homebrewers, so is taking a full hydro reading multiple times. No more guess work! Know exactly when to dry hop,cold crash etc based on your readings. At first I thought this was just another brewing toy for me, now I find it vital!
