A refractometer is used to measure the density of a solution, in our case how much malt sugar is in solution.

Our refractometer is unique in that it features both a Brix Scale and a Specific Gravity Scale, the scale most homebrewers use.

  • For Wine: Measure the brix level (sugar level) in your grapes.
  • For Beer Making: A refractometer allows you take instant gravity readings at any point during the boil, or even during the run off of the sparge during an all-grain brew. Our unit allows you to measure in Specific Gravity Scale.

Refractometer Statistics:

  • Our refractometer is hand held with a metal body, flexible eye piece and rubber grip.
  • It features a 0 to 32% Brix scale with .2% resolution and ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensation). Traditional refractometers without ATC are calibrated to work at 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The ATC function allows you to use the refractometer in an ambient temperature range of 50-86 degrees Fahrenheit (10-30 Celsius.) Because your sample is just one drop, and will quickly adjust to the temperature of the refractometer, the temperature of the sample is irrelevant.
  • Our unit also comes with a manual calibration knob that is secured with a lock nut. To calibrate place one drop of water on the testing platform and adjust to zero if necessary.

Please Note:  The prisms in these refractometers are calibrated for sugar content only and are great for determining sugar content PRE-FERMENTATION. Due to alcohol content in solution post-fermentation and/or post-distillation, they will not give accurate readings, meaning you cannot easily determine the alcohol content of a fermented or distilled product using this product.
