Tilt™ - Purple 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!
Fantastic knowing the internal temps of a stainless steel conical and your current SG. I also purchased the Tilt Repeater which worked flawlessly sending wi-fi data anywhere in the house to my tablet. I am not computer/spreadsheet savvy but Tilt customer service spoon fed me more the once to get me up to speed. Thank you Noah! Their webpage has great tutorials.
Bought this with hope of saving myself from daily hydrometer readings and was not disappointed. Love being able to get regular easy updates and continuous temperature tracking to compare to my temperature controller. Manual hydrometer readings are still recommended in order to confirm operation, but certainly made my life easier.
Super easy to use. Tells you the gravity and temp without having to open up the fermentation. It helped me know that one of my fermentations stalled. The only downside is the data is not stored in the Tilt. If you want all of the data for the fermentation, you have to have a dedicated tablet running the app. But it is easy to write down the values when you check.
What an easy way to check your hydro readings.
Excellent way to monitor fermentation. Wish I had this years ago.
