These have been out of stock since before Christmas.  They’re available again as of this posting.

While you’re placing a RiteBrew order, grab some universal poppets.  At $2.19 they are a bargain.

Reader Tip: 1 Gallon Heavy Duty Pitcher for Brew Day

Thanks to HBF Reader John for this tip!

Thunder Group 4.0 Quart Liquid Aluminum Measure Cup

There are several equipment purchases that I look back on and say… I’m really glad I got that, it’s made a big difference.  This pitcher, is one of those.  I went from a mish-mash of too small plastic pitchers, found around the house, that bent under the weight of wort, dripped and leached who knows what into my beer to two of these babies!  What a difference.

These sturdy pitchers hold a full gallon and are food safe at high temps.  The lip around the top minimizes drips.

I use these for vorlaufing/recirculating, topping up and transferring water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day and more.

Features: 4 Quart/1 Gallon Capacity, Heavy Duty Construction, Riveted Easy Grip Handle,  Internal and External Volume Markings,

Dual Scale Refractometer w/Corrected Scale – $24.99

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.

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: “This is the only inexpensive Wort SG to be corrected. The only other corrected refrafractometers in existence are the BREWfractometer and the BREWfractometer Extreme.”

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)

1/31/15 6:30 PM: This refractometer is selling for $24.99.  Shipping is free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

I recently picked up these transfer pippettes.  They are a whopping 300 mm/11.8″ Long.  After using these for one beer, I can tell you that they are long enough to grab a refractometer sample from a 5 gallon batch in a Speidel 7.9 Gallon Fermenter.
