JahyShow Brix Refractometer – Aluminum Body with ATC – $14.80 + free shipping

JahyShow Brix Refractometer, Beer Wort Refractometer, Dual Scale - Specific Gravity 1.000-1.120 and Brix 0-32% Replaces Home Brewing Homebrew Alcohol Hydrometer (Aluminum)JahyShow Brix Beer Wort Refractometer

Reads 0-32% Brix.  ATC – automatic temperature compensation.  Aluminum body.

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.

HBF Commentary: In my opinion there is some conflicting information in the product description for this refractometer (as of this posting).  It says it is dual scale – both brix and specific gravity, but it also explicitly says it is not dual scale.  I’m unsure.  If it’s not, there are calculators and conversions available.  Check the product page for current details and description.

I have these and the length makes them long enough to take refractometer samples directly from the fermenter.  Of course, that’s going to depend on your fermenter.
