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.
No additional information.
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!
Just started to use it. It didn’t save the title for my brew. Not sure if my temperature on thermostat is right or if the tilt is the right temperature. Wish it came with a little more directions. Did check out their web site. Nice thing it does give the alcohol percentage.
A little bit of an investment, but so cool! I set it up with a Pi B+ and the HD version of the Tilt os. The steps were easy and it just worked. This was my first project with a Pi and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and easily everything went together. Now I can quietly obsess over my home brew numbers
and even compare brew rates with friends :D
I love this thing. It’s a huge time saver and way more convenient than opening my fermenter multiple times to check the SG.
Very cool unit.
I’ve used it on 2 fermentations now so still getting to know it. I like watching the temperature and gravity change and it allows me to react and cool the beer when very active fermentation is going on.
I bought a raspberry pi and downloaded their software to it so it logs to the cloud. I love the charts.
I recommend it for all brewers.
