Instantly read the gravity, in Brix, of unfermented wort of fruit juice – with just a few drops of liquid. This refractometer reads gravity by measuring the angle at which the light passes through the sample. Easier to use than a hydrometer, you only need a few drops for the sample. To use, apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover, and look through the eyepiece while aiming your refractometer at a light source. The Specific Gravity scale will provide a quick reading of your Original Gravity. Once fermentation has begun and alcohol is present, keep track of the Brix scale and use the Refractometer Calculator for Final Gravity correction.
Our refractometer comes complete with a screwdriver for calibration, a microfiber cloth for cleaning the prism surface, a pipette for sample collection, and detailed usage instructions.
- Handheld with a metal body, flexible eye piece and rubber grip
- 0 to 32% Brix scale with .2% resolution and ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensation)
- ATC function allows you to use the refractometer in an ambient temperature range of 50-86° Fahrenheit (10-30 Celsius)
- Includes 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 needed

Easy to use. Like the temperature compensation feature.
Haven’t had a chance to use it yet. It arrived here to late to use it for this years small harvest. I’ve got it though & plan on using it for next years.
Worked just like me
My friend told me.
This is much faster than a hydrometer and doesn't waste so much beer. I use the calculator on Northern Brewer's website to calculate SG and ABV from Bx values.
