RSG-100ATC Dual Scale Refractometer w/ATC – $18.99 Shipped

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.

2/7/16 5:20 PM Central: This highly rated refractometer is selling for just $14.  Shipping is $4.99.  That makes it $18.99 shipped.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Long Pipette Sampler

300 mm/11.8″ long transfer pipettes.  I have these.  They work great for grabbing refractometer samples.  They are long enough to grab a refractometer sample from a 5 gallon batch in a Speidel 7.9 Gallon Fermenter.

Itc-301T by Inkbird.  Digital Dual Stage Pre-Wired Temperature Controller with 6 Timers.

Dual stage means that the Itc-310T can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.  Maximum output is 1,100 watt at 120 volts.  Dual Display shows both measured and set temperature.

This controller is similar to the Inkbird Itc-308 Digital Temperature Controller Outlet Thermostat, 2-stage, 1000w, w/ Sensor – [Review] with some notable differences including the fact that the 310T has a timer feature that allows you to program 6 temperatures in 6 periods of time.  That plays well with changing fermentation and conditioning temperatures during fermentation.  The 310T is also is rated for 1,100 Watts vs 1,000 Watts for the 308.

Klean Kanteen Brushed Stainless Classic Vacuum Insulated Growler Storage with Swing Lok Cap, 64-Ounce

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers
