A refractometer is used to measure the density of a solution, to take a Brix reading in wine making or to take a Specific Gravity in Beer Making. Traditionally Refractometers have featured just a Brix scale requiring a calculation to convert to Specific Gravity. This Refractometer features both scales making it ideal for brewers and vintners.
For Wine: Measure the Brix level (sugar level) in your grapes with just one drop! The perfect vineyard tool for monitoring ripening grapes. Also use them after the crush to get an exact brix reading.
For Beer Making: A refractometer allows you take instant Specific Gravity readings at any point during the boil, or even during the run off of the sparge during an all-grain brew.
Refractometer Statistics: Metal body, flexible eye piece and rubber grip. It features a 0 to 32% Brix scale with .2% resolution and a 1.000 to 1.200 Specific Gravity scale. Freatures Automatic Temperature Correction function that 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. 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.
