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.
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 unit is a little pricey yes, but to be able to check your SG anytime without wasting any beer makes it worth it. Especially those nights after a few beer where you just stand above your fermenter feeling impatient. I will be purchasing more.
I now have 2 of the "Tilts" and I'm very pleased with both of them. I will most likely order one or 2 more in the near future.
It is quickly becoming my most important instrument. Drop it in your fermentor and forget it. Real time temp and gravity reading from inside. No need to pull samples. A bit on the pricey side, but well worth the investment, just for how easy it makes everything. The bluetooth range is not very far so I have to bring my phone right up to my fermentation chamber for a connection, but still way better then the trouble of pulling a sample.
It works great
