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!
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.
I only recently purchased and it is resting inside my SS Brewtech Conical spitting out data that has been amazing to monitor. I do know that there are some data changes that seem to alter with heavy doses of dryhopping, but it works out on its own as they dissolve. I will be purchasing another very soon. I opted to build a Raspberry Pi for constant monitoring and data collection to Google Sheets. Love it so far!
I made a batch of wine recently using the tilt. All went well, wine was a hit with our recent neighborhood social distancing gathering.
The tilt makes life easy to just look at the temp and specific gravity without opening up the closed system! Accurate and easy to set up.
