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.

Check out our Refractometer Calculator, which will allow you to convert Brix to gravity before and during fermentation.

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.

Additional information

No additional information.


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.

Great tool.

The readings match what I was getting from my hydrometer, so I can trust the accuracy. It's a lot less wasteful since you only need a couple drops to get a reading. The storage case helps keep it safe. Good product all around.

Duh Brix!

Great homebrew tool! I had been toying with the idea of making the added inve$tment for a gravity test tool. It's an extremely easy and accurate tool. One of the best benefits is that you only need a very small wort sample size to test! I used a small sanitized spoon to draw a sample not the supplied eye dropper. It's a must have for serious homebrewers!

Good technology will take a little getting used too but less beer wasting

A good gift ?

I purchased the refractometer as a gift. My son hasn’t had a chance to use it. I’ll keep you posted.

Great tool!

I brewed a batch this past weekend and used the Brix. It worked flawlessly. A quick calibration and then an accurate measurement that matched the target OG. It is very easy to use and doesn't waste my precious beer.
