SEOH Dropping Glass Pipette Glass Pipet 12 inch 300mm

12″ Long Glass Pippette/Sample Taker.  At 12″ this is long enough to get a sample (depending on your fermenter and batch size) directly from your fermenter.  Since it’s glass it should be easy to clean and sanitize.  This collects a 5 mL sample that’s plenty for your refractometer.

Reader Tip: ATC Refractometer

Thanks to HBF Reader Paul for this tip!

313kQd1-XVL._SX425_

This 0-32 Brix Refractometer is getting great reviews.

Features:

  • Ade Advanced Optics Brix Refractometer
  • 0-32% Brix Scale. Accurate to +/- 0.20% Brix*
  • Sturdy design, made of durable machined Aluminum, not “carbon” plastic
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)
  • 1 Year Manufacturer warranty through Ade Advanced Optics

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.

BREWfractometer Extreme Dual Scale, ATC Refractometer

31eVP9bbwlL._SY450_

The BREWfractometer Extreme is from the same manufacturer is the often mentioned RSG-100ATC Dual (Corrected) Scale Refractometer.

The BREWfractometer Extreme is said to have a heavier duty construction and also has the ability to read higher gravities (up to 1.180).  The BREWfractometer Extreme has been unavailable.  It is back in stock as of this posting.

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.
