  • Refractometers are a great way of measuring the sugar content of your wort (or beer) using only a few drops. By checking throughout your process you can make sure that your brewday is going to plan, noting down your gravity readings, and even save time if you’ve hit your numbers earlier than expected. *Note that samples with alcohol (e.g. beer during fermentation) need to use an adjustment calculator (as easily found online) to compensate, as alcohol in the sample affects the accuracy of the reading.


    We’ve chosen to offer this model as it has a large enough range to cover most (if not all) brews you’ll do. It’s scale measures from 1.000-1.120 specific gravity (SG) and from 0-32% Brix simultaneously. Crucially, it also has automatic temperature compensation (ATC) between 10-30˚C to correct the reading, making sure you're getting the right results every time. There’s no simpler way to check in on your process!


    This unit is made from durable yet lightweight materials, and instead of those cheap, frustrating to use plastic cases (that ultimately break and are useless – we have some history with those!) it comes with a zippered soft-sided case that has excellent shock resistance to keep your tool protected when stored away.


    Easy to use:

    1. Open the cover and wipe the detection prism with a soft cloth (provided)
    2. Using the included pipette, take a sample and place a few drops on the prism. Gently close the cover. You should see no air bubbles and that the sample is spread over the entire prism.
    3. Looking through the eyepiece, aim the prism at a light source (the brighter it is, the easier it will be to see the results.) Adjust the focus wheel on the eyepiece if necessary until the image is clear.
    4. The line dividing the blue and white background will run through the s.g. and Brix scale, depicting the sample’s concentration.
