Brix & Specific Gravity Refractometer w/ATC

SKU: 7462

A refractometer instantly reads gravity, in Brix, of unfermented wort or fruit juice by measuring the degree that light passing through the sample is bent. Unlike a hydrometer, only a few drops are required for a 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.

It is also a great tool for All-Grain Brewing. Easily sample your mash runoff so you know exactly when to stop sparging (typically 2-3 Brix). Then easily take readings before and during the boil to make sure you hit your recipe targets.

Our refractometers measure from 0-32° Brix, with an accuracy of +/- 0.2° Brix. They also include automatic temperature compensation for temperatures between 50-86° F, which eliminates the need to consult temperature correction charts.

Details

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 SG measurement
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.

Works very well to dial in your abv%
Works very well but I recommend only using it pre fermentation.. I always test my FG with a ,hydrometer but this works very well while brewing and adjusting gravity.

How do I convert the meter SpGr reading after fermentation has begun? The product description references a Refractometer Calculator for Final Gravity correction, where can this be found.
William M on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use the app ibrewmaster2 for my phone for the conversion. It has calculators built into it that will make the conversion for you. As long as you know your original Brix, you can use the calculator to deliver the converted SG of your Brix measurement at any time during fermentation.
is this stainless steel or aluminum?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: most likely aluminum. I have been using this refractometer for 1 yr now and I am very happy with this product. Very accurate and stays in calibration. I rinse it of with water after each use with no worries. I recommend this product, it has served me well.
Where is the refractometer made?
kevin gill on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are manufactured in China.
Can you use this for wine and grappa making ?
K U on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as it's within the scale it can read yes. Up to 30brix.
