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!
Received and would not work. After a few I relied to emails, we tried a new battery. And it came to life. In the meantime, NB sent a replacement. We are returning that one and sticking with our original unit with the new battery. Still monitoring how well it works and will decide if we get another.
I set up the tilt with a raspberry pi and love the results. I get a way chart to know exactly how my brew is doing
I have found the Tilt hydrometer is a great addition to my brewing. Another innovation that simplifies my day and speeds up the process.
Good stuff !
Convenient to monitor during fermentation
