A dual scale refractometer quickly measures how much sugar is in a solution on a both a brix and specific gravity scale. The more sugar in solution, the higher the reading. Just put a few drops of wort or juice on the lens and close the cover. Then look through the eyepiece to read the sugar content in both brix and specific gravity (brix 0-32, specific gravity 1.000 to 1.130).

A refractometer is not a replacement for a hydrometer, as it cannot easily be used to check the brix or specific gravity of sugar solutions that contain alcohol. To do this with a refractometer, you can use brewing software like BeerSmith*. However, it is ideal for quickly checking initial sugar content, whether in the field when checking the ripeness of grapes, or when mashing to immediately see the specific gravity of the runoff.

Not all refractometers are the same. The picture at right shows a comparision view at the same camera exposure of our William’s Refractometer on the right and a generic refractometer on the left with the same light source. Note the brighter and larger display made possible by the higher quality optics in the William’s Refractometer.

Besides an LED light so you can use it in the evening in the vineyard, ours also features automatic temperature compensation, a vision adjustable eyepiece with removeable rubber eye cup, padded case, eyedropper, calibration screwdriver (calibrate to zero brix/specific gravity by using tap water) and instructions. This runs on three included LR41 button batteries (common in hearing aids).


 

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.

  • 1.Dual Scale Testing Brix 0-40%/ Alcohol Degree of Wine,you can get the reading easily just with 2 drops to know your readings.With this grape refractometer, you can pick out ideal grapes for making wine easier and quicker.
  • 2. WIDE APPLICATION WITH 0-40% BRIX SCALE:This refractometer is designed for grape wine brewing,but with extra large scale range of brix 0-40% lends itself to many other uses too. You can use it to test the brix of any sample liquid.
  • 3. ACCURATE READINGS WITH ATC:Handheld wine Refractometer with Automatic Temperature Compensation(ATC),no more worry about the temperature change will influence the reading accuracy.the refractometer will account for changes in ambient temperature and automatically compensate accordingly to provides accurate and repeatable measurements
  • 4. AIRCRAFT ALUMIUM BODY MATERIAL:The grape wine refractometer is made of non-staining, non-corrosive and non-reactive aluminum which is lightweight to carry,anti-scratch and durable.
  • 5. This Unit is better than the 0-32% Brix Models. Because brewing high quality wines need more than 32% sugar content Brix. Excellent winemakers prefer to use nearly 40% Brix grapes to make wine.

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

Beer brewing refractometer. This hand-held optical refractometer measures the density of sugars in the solution and gives you an instant gravity readings at any point during the boil, or run off from the mash. You do not need to convert the reading from Brix to specific gravity or do an adjustments for temperature. Great for quick and frequent check on the gravity of your running or while sparging, and also for those who do not like to deal with the temperature compensation necessary with a hydrometer. Unlike a hydrometer, it only requires a very small amount sample, about 2-3 drops of sample only.
This refractometer is specifically created for brewing of BEER but it can also be great for:
Fruits, vegetables & grasses:
Monitor and control sugar concentrations in foods, beverages, crops and plants, checking the “ripeness”of fruit in the field and verifying product quality after harvesting and/or controlling concentrations during processing and packaging to ensure product quality
Wine or beer:
Use Brix readings to get wort sugars and help determine finished alcohol readings (, best use in conjunction with a hydrometer)
Metalworking fluids
Helps in maintenance of CNC coolants and water soluble drawing & stamping compounds and commonly used for controlling the concentration of various industrial fluids like cutting lubricants and flux rinsing compounds The need to consult temperature correction charts is eliminated with the built-in 10-30°C ATC. The unit also comes with a manual calibration knob that is secured with a lock nut and has a brighter display than the more narrow range refractometers. One of the popular instrument with many homebrewers!
Measuring Range:
0~ 32% Brix Scale
1.000 ~ 1.130 Wort Specific Gravity
Accuracy:±0.2% Brix ±0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC): 10°C~30°C (50°F~86°F)
