More about Citra

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

Citra® is currently one of the most sought after hops among craft and home brewers for their intense citrus aroma and flavor. Grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit, and lychee notes. Currently one of the top choices for late hop additions or dry hopping when you want to make that ultimate hop bomb IPA or Pale Ale. Citra® also has a fairly high alpha acid content making it a good choice for bittering IPAs, Pales, and American Ales. Supply has been limited in the industry but MoreBeer! loved this hop from day one and bought a lot of it years ago on contract.

  • BUILT TOUGH: The patented design and rugged construction lets you secure a wide variety of loads quickly and easily. Every ROPE RATCHET is made super tough rope so you can depend on it to work as a rv awning hook, for your rope tarp, part of your ceiling pulley system, or as a heavy duty rope hanger. Every ROPE RATCHET is made super tough so you can depend on it to take all the hard work you do. 150lb Weight Capacity.

Note from HBF: Given the right setup, this could be helpful as a pulley for a BIAB setup.  Of course, you’ll want a capable place to hang it and want to make sure to stay under the rated capacity.

Hands on Review: ThermoWorks ProNeedle Thermometer + Limited Time Deal

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.


Limited Time Deal, Review Continues Below:

For a limited time ThermoWorks is discounting everything sitewide by 15%.  This works with the ProNeedle.  No coupon code is necessary, discount is automatically applied at checkout.  Check ThermoWorks to see if you can still get in on this deal.


Thermoworks ProNeedle

Beer brewing combines your artsy side (recipe creation) with your nerdy side (brewing process discipline). One thing your nerdy side can’t be without is temperature data. Whether it’s mash temperature or fermentation temperature, a few degrees difference can change your results. And to get repeatable results, you need to control your brewing process so you can hit the same temperatures again next time.

Thermoworks specializes in temperature sensors of all shapes and sizes. They were founded in 1997 and serve multiple industries that require temperature monitoring. Specifically well suited for homebrewing, they have quick-responding and accurate digital thermometers that are waterproof rated.

The ProNeedle has an accuracy of +/- 0.9 degrees F within the temperature band of 14F – 212F. It works at temperatures outside that band, but the accuracy drops off significantly. The digital display reads out in tenths of a degree. The thermometer senses when you rotate it, and the digital readout is able to flip 180 degrees to try to keep it readable. There’s a button you can push to backlight the LED in low light situations. It also has a min/max function, such that when finishing measuring something, you can pull up the maximum temperature read and minimum temperature read by cycling through it with a button push.

Measuring Mash TemperatureConfirming Mash Temp Using Max Function

You might be concerned about electronics up close to your wort since the things you try to keep dry somehow are the first bits to get splashed. The ProNeedle is certified to IP67 standard (can handle up to 30 minutes submerged to a 39” depth), so you don’t have to worry when it gets splashed, or even if you lose your grip and have to fish it out of the mash tun. The thermometer is designed to fit in your pocket, so it’s about the length of a pen. Half of that length is the electronics body with the buttons and screen, and the other half is the thin stainless probe. The probe is 2.9” long, but only needs to be submerged at least 1/4″ to get a temperature reading. It comes with a plastic cover to protect the probe when not in use (and also to protect you from the pointy end of the narrow probe).

It uses a small CR1632 battery, which is good for 3,000 hours (without backlight) of temperature measurements. If you forget to push the power button to turn it off, it has an auto-off feature that will shut it off after several minutes. Thermoworks stands behind the thermometer with a 5-year warranty, as well.

TRZ Dual Scale Beer and Wine Refractometer Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 and Brix 0-32% – $16 + Free Shipping

TRZ Brix Refractometer with ATC, Handheld Refractometer,Dual Scale-Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 and Brix 0-32% for Beer Wine and Fruit

TRZ Brix Refractometer with ATC, Handheld Refractometer,Dual Scale-Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 and Brix 0-32% for Beer Wine and Fruit

More Info

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

  • It is more accurate than a hydrometer and easy to measure. Measuring Range: Brix (Sugar): 0 – 32%, Resolution: Brix (Sugar): 0.2% Automatic Temperature Compensation (10 ℃ ~ 30 ℃) and calibration screw.
  • Measuring Range:SG wort 1.000-1.130
  • For sugar concentration in fruit juces, soft drinks, vegetables, foods and cooling lubricants
  • The refractometer body and the retaining ring are made of brass and chrome plated. The internal optical lens with high refractive index make up the precision optical system.
  • The instrument is resistant to abrasion and corrosion resistance. Can be measured acidic and alkaline and other general corrosive liquid.

 

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.

8/10/20 10 PM Central: As of this posting, this highly rated refractometer is selling for just $16..  Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.
