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.

1″ x 5/16″ Stir Bar – $4.56 Shipped

SEOH Magnetic Stir Bar Octahedral 1 x 5/16 new

1″ by 5/16″ Stir Bar by SEOH.  Encapsulated in FDA approved PTFE with Alnico V Magnet Core.

Use with your stir plate and erlenmeyer flask to make yeast starters.  Yeast count dramatically increases in a stir plate starter vs a non-stir plate starter.  The constant motion incorporates air, keeps yeast in contact with nutrients and expels CO2 for solution.  This all leads to higher yeast counts.

2/3/16 10:30 AM Central: This highly rated stir bar is selling for $4.56.  Shipping is also free.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

13 Gallon Food Safe Drums for Fermenters and Grain Storage

13 Gallon HDPE Food Safe Fermenter Grain Storage

13 gallon food safe containers via eBay. Drill a 1/2″ hole in the lid and add an airlock grommet [Search: Airlock Grommet] and you’re up and going with a 13 gallon fermenter. You could also use this as a food safe 13 gallon grain storage container. At an estimated 5 lbs per gallon, these would hold approximately 65 lbs of grain. These are pre-used barrels. They were used to hold pharmaceuticals.

from HBF Reader Aaron: “I own one of these, they do have an o-ring and work great for storing grain or fermenting in.”

These are selling for $20 + $23 Shipping.  The seller will combine shipping for multiple items (contact the seller for actual USPS charges).  Or… if you live in or around Rancho Cucamonga, California you can arrange for local pickup.
