RSG-100ATC Dual Scale Refractometer w/ATC – $12.27 + $5.09 shipping

The RSG-100ATC refractometer reads in both Brix and Gravity.  It also features ATC – automatic temperature compensation.

Magnum Media DUAL SCALE 0-32% Brix and 1.000-1.130SG Wort Refractometer RSG-100ATC Beer Home Brew

RSG-100ATC Refractometer.  Dual Scale, Reads 0-32% Brix & 1.000-1.130 Wort Specific Gravity.  .2% Brix/.001 Specific Gravity Resolution.  Accuracy: +/-0.2% Brix and +/-0.001 Wort Specific Gravity.  ATC from 10-30’C (50-86’F).

For me, getting a refractometer was one of those upgrades that made a lot of difference.  With a refractometer you need a sample size of two drops.  I figured that this would pay for itself in beer savings alone.  I also had just broken my hydrometer and came to the realization that hydrometers are made of breakable glass that can break! 🙂

Refractometers can be used to measure gravity throughout the brewing process.  You can also estimate the alcohol content of your beer if you forget to take an OG with the use of a refractometer and a hydrometer.  Check out Sean Terrill’s excellent refractometer calculator.

3/26/17 10 PM Central: This is selling for $12.27. Shipping is $5.09 to most US addresses. Price, shipping and availability can change quickly.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Emergency Essentials Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Emergency Essentials has great prices and additional price drops on Food Safe Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids.  I own and use the 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seals for my primary grain and kit storage.  See my Hands on Review

Food Safe Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids at Emergency Essentials.

As of this posting, Emergency Essentials is offering an additional 10% off site side (off already good prices).  Just go to the website and wait for a few moments and a page should pop up offering you an additional 10% off.  Note that you need to give them an email address to activate the offer.  After you’ve activated it, you will get a unique coupon code.  Visit Emergency Essentials for up to the minute availability.  Shipping to most US addresses is based on an relatively inexpensive tier model.

More About Gamma Seal Lids and Buckets
Gamma Seal Lids are a great upgrade.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids.  These are also airtight.

From the description: “These buckets are different from what you will find at a hardware store. These are high quality, thick (90 mil) food grade plastic bucket, so there aren’t harmful chemicals that may affect your stored goods.”

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimation two 5 gallon buckets would hold a full 50 lb bag and two 6 gallon buckets would hold a full 55 lb bag (plus a bit more).

These buckets are food grade so they could also be used as fermenters.  Just pick up an airlock grommet to add an airlock.  If you do that, I would go with the standard lid option, not the gamma seal option.
