Vinometer

The Vinometer is a very simple device to use to determine the alcohol content of you wine after it has fermented. The vinometer is only accurate with wine and does not work well with beer or liquor.

Cheap Review by Bolars

(Posted on 2/14/14)

Product Rating:

Its quick and fast and costs little so for red wines can be useful.
But as I've been getting more involve din wine making I now start taking gravity readings with my hydrometer and I get accurate results that way.
If undisciplined, its a good tool for red wine.

Better results using a vinometer. Review by toofer

Take three readings and average it out. If using on light colored wine, add food coloring. It does not effect the sample that is going to be thrown away.

I'm sticking with hydrometer Review by Jason

Product Rating:

It's dirt cheap so it's worth trying. The vinometer is ok, but after using it twice I prefer the hydrometer. The hydrometer requires you take an original gravity reading, which I always do. It's not affected by the dissolved CO2 like this is.

Use after fermentation is complete, and after the wine is degassed Review by Orson

I give my wine an extra week in the fermentor and degas after racking. The value of this tool is I use less wine taking a sample compared to a hydrometer. It gives me a rough idea of the final gravity. For $4 its fast and easy.

Its easy to use but not accurate until it's completely fermented out Review by Anthony

(Posted on 10/23/13)

Product Rating:

In addition to being very easy to break, it's not accurate if there is dissolved CO2. So you have to spend the time to thoroughly degass it, and you don't want to risk Oxygenating your wine. The wine must be completely fermented, and dry, meaning its not useful until its done.
I just don't see any advantage over a hydrometer.

Inexpensive Review by Anthony

It was inexpensive so i wanted to try it. I was not impressed with the accuracy. Quick but inaccurate doesn't help me. I no longer use it.

Fast but not so accuarate Review by Drew

(Posted on 7/8/13)

Product Rating:

Its fast and easy to use , requires less wine, and doesn't cost much. Its ok as an estimator but isn't all that accurate. And for sweet wines it's less accurate. Plus its easy to break. It's at its best with small batches of dry wine, where you don't wnat to consume too much of a limited product.

A must have for wine makers Review by Sean

(Posted on 5/30/13)

Product Rating:

Its a good instrument but it must be used correctly. Make sure that the wine is free from anything that could get stuck in the capillary.

The vinometer needs much less wine to take a reading. This is especially important for small batches and multiple readings. Its for measuring final gravity, and works well on dry wines. Sweet wines will throw it off.

Waste of Money Review by Wayne

Product Rating:

Used on dry whites and could hardly see results, moreover the readings were not consistent with several attempts on the same batch.
