SainSmart Brix Refractometer – 0-32% Brix
Brix Refractometer, Beer Wort Refractometer, Dual Scale – Specific Gravity 1.000-1.120 and Brix 0-32% by SainSmart
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! 🙂

Hey Richard, They look similar, but I really can’t say as I don’t own either one. I can say that generally speaking, I have no issue with less expensive refractometers. I own a couple different models and they have worked well for me. A sub-$20 unit sourced from ebay was my first refractometer and I use it to this day. I’ve compared it with my lab grade digital unit and when calibrated, it’s right there. Again, I’m offering no specific comparison, only speaking in generalities.
