Product details

A Brix Refractometer that includes a specific gravity scale. You won't have to do conversions between Brix and gravity when measuring the Original Gravity of musts or wort. Measuring final gravity accurately will still take some calculations, as the presence of alcohol does affect the reading. (See our article on How to Use a Refractometer for more information.)

Best of all, it only requires a few drops of liquid for an accurate reading. No need to lose a whole hydrometer test jar of beer or wine in the process.

Our refractometer comes complete with a screwdriver for calibration, a microfiber cloth for cleaning the prism surface, a pipette for sample collection, and detailed usage instructions.

A refractometer instantly reads gravity, in Brix, of unfermented wort or fruit juice by measuring the degree that light passing through the sample is bent. Unlike a hydrometer, only a few drops are required for a sample. To use, apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover, and look through the eyepiece while aiming your refractometer at a light source.

The Specific Gravity scale will provide a quick reading of your Original Gravity. Once fermentation has begun and alcohol is present, keep track of the Brix scale and use the Refractometer Calculator for Final Gravity correction.

It is also a great tool for All-Grain Brewing. Easily sample your mash runoff so you know exactly when to stop sparging (typically 2-3 Brix). Then easily take readings before and during the boil to make sure you hit your recipe targets. 

Our refractometers measure from 0-32° Brix, with an accuracy of +/- 0.2° Brix. They also include automatic temperature compensation for temperatures between 50-86° F, which eliminates the need to consult temperature correction charts.

Brix/Specific Gravity Refractometer w/ATC

I always wanted to get a Brix Refractometer, but didn't know if it would be worth the money. So, when I saw the PROMO to get one FREE with my NORTHERN BREWER order I jumped at the chance! I've used it for 2 brews so far and I am loving it. It's great only needing a few drops to get my gravity reading instead of having to fill up the cyllinder for my hydrometer every time(which adds up when you're checking daily to see if the fermentation is complete.) I highly recommend this product to anyone who brews!

Easy to read

I like that it is easy to read and gives me a second source to review my gravity readings.

Excellent product

This is a great product and I appreciate the formula in your site that adjusts for alcohol content

Refractometer

Works excellent with hot wort. No need to pack a sample in ice to read it with a hydrometer. But I did compare the readings the old way with the new. Was within .001. Which is close enough for me. But when reading final gravity out of the fermenter did not get close to the hydrometer. But I bought it for hot wort. I am very pleased with it.
