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.

      Hey Richard, They look similar, but I really can’t say as I don’t own either one. I can say that generally speaking, I have no issue with less expensive refractometers. I own a couple different models and they have worked well for me. A sub-$20 unit sourced from ebay was my first refractometer and I use it to this day. I’ve compared it with my lab grade digital unit and when calibrated, it’s right there. Again, I’m offering no specific comparison, only speaking in generalities.
