Vee Gee Deluxe Refractometer w/ ATC

Vee Gee Deluxe Refractometer

Vee Gee Deluxe Refractometer with ATC (Automatic Temperature Correction).  MoreBeer says that the clear scale in this makes this their easiest to read refractometer.  0-30 Brix Scale.  Ocular eye piece.  Locking calibration ring.  Beefy rubber grip.  This higher quality than many of the units out there.  It’s hefty and sturdy.   From the description… “for the user who only wants to have to buy it once”.

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.

Dual Scale Refractometer w/Corrected Scale

The RSG-100ATC refractometer reads in both Brix and Gravity.  This refractometer features a corrected scale and ATC – automatic temperature compensation.  What is a corrected scale?  Read on.

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.

  • Grab this Refractometer & measure your pre-fermented Wort in seconds with just DROPS of wort
  • Dual Scale Refractometer: 0-32% Brix & 1.000-1.130 Wort Specific Gravity
  • Scale Resolution: 0.2% Brix and 0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
  • Accuracy: +/-0.2% Brix and +/-0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
  • Comes with Automatic Temperature Compensation from 10-30’C (50-86’F)

Gravity to Brix Accuracy
Typical dual scale refractometers use a linear 4 x gravity to Brix conversion.  That’s fine and dandy up until around 1.049.  At that point this linear scale starts to become inaccurate.  Brix 11 does equal 1.044, but Brix 12 does not equal 1.048.  It is 1.049.  It’s only 1 point off here, but up at Brix 24, it’s up to 5 points off.  Brix 24 equals 1.101 not 1.096.

All this to say that this model of refractometer uses a more accurate, non-linear gravity to Brix scale.

From the manufacturer Magnum Media (via email on 1/14/14): “This is the only inexpensive Wort SG to be corrected. The only other corrected refrafractometers in existence are the BREWfractometer and the BREWfractometer Extreme.”
