Inkbird ITC-308 – Dual Stage Digital Temperature Controller | Review | Inkbird Deals

ORIA Refrigerator Freezer Thermometer with TWO Wireless Sensors – monitor kegerator & fermentation chamber temps

ORIA Refrigerator Thermometer, Wireless Digital Freezer Thermometer with 2 Wireless Sensors, Audible Alarm, Min/Max Record, LCD Display for Home, Restaurants, Bars, Cafes (Battery not Included)

ORIA Refrigerator Thermometer, Wireless Digital Freezer Thermometer with 2 Wireless Sensors, Audible Alarm, Min/Max Record, LCD Display for Home, Restaurants, Bars, Cafes (Battery not Included)


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Dual Wireless Sensors: Built-in the console and 2 remote sensors, the wireless fridge thermometer can display indoor temperature and 2 groups of outdoor temperature simultaneously. You can use it in the refrigerator or outdoor.
  • Accurate Max/Min Record: The indoor/outdoor thermometer range; Indoor: -10℃~ 60℃ (14℉~ 140℉); Outdoor: -40℃~ 60℃ (-40℉~140℉); Transmission range: 100M/328ft (open area). It can record max and min temperature and display up, down & parallel arrow to indicate the trend of current temperature.
  • Audio Alarm: The wireless refrigerator temperature with audible alarm, you can set the maximum and minimum alarm value manually. It can ring when the temperature value reaches at the point of limit max or min alarm value that you pre-set.
  • Multiple Installation: The wireless thermometer is easy to install. With integrated magnets, a hanging hole and a bracket at the back, you can put the main unit in refrigerator door, hang on the wall or stand on the table.
  • Easy Operation: There are 6 function keys on the main unit and signal indicator on the transmitter, you just press the corresponding key to turn on/off the alarm, switch the Celsius or Fahrenheit and clear the MAX/MIN records.

Thoughts from HBF… So, this has two wireless sensors along with an ambient thermometer that’s built into the main unit.  It also records minimum and maximum temps for each sensor.  You could use one sensor in your fermentation chamber and one sensor in your kegerator to monitor temperatures.  The min and max feature would also give you a great idea about how things are working.  As a bonus you also get all the same info for the ambient temp where the base is located.  Note that the sensors need to be within the stated range of this unit (or closer).

11/12/18 9 PM Central: This is selling for $16.99. That’s the best historical third party Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly. Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit Amazon.

Anpro Dual Scale Refractometer – now… $14.39 + free shipping, best price

Anpro Dual Scale Refractometer


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Hand Held Refractometer with Automatic Temperature Compensation
  • Portable Sugar Content Tester
  • 0~32% Refractometer, Perfect for Sugar Measurement
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation: 50°F ~86°F (10°C~30°C)
  • Easy to use,sturdy design, compact in size and light in weight, convenient to keep up and carry around. Color of the cleaning cloth: random color

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.

11/14/18 11 PM Central: This has dropped to just $14.39. That’s the best historical third party Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.
