Tilt™ - Yellow 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!
This thing is awesome! Set up was a breeze, and it lets me monitor my beer at all times.
Tilt gave me specific readings from start to finish. Well worth the cost. Easy to set up.
This is super convenient and I love it. Calibration was on out of the box. It is nice to know SG day by day and then to know when final gravity is reached. Less chance of oxygen exposure and infection. At times it didn't give a reading and it doesn't get a signal through the wall of my fermentation chamber unless I open the door. Not a show stopper.
Really good! Make sure to take it out of its case before you use it !
Granted this is more than a traditional hydrometer but it's got to be one of the best recent home brewing investments I've made!
It's easy to use and has been VERY accurate! It's great to see the temperature trends over time along with the other calculations it does. Best part though is that you can monitor the specific gravity during fermentation WITHOUT having to open your fermentor which practically eliminates the risks of oxidation and contamination.
