  • AND THEY’RE EASY TO CLEAN TOO: You can easily separate every part of the jar for cleaning, to prevent mold or bacteria building up in the seal or under the date dial. You can always ferment with confidence that your equipment is totally clean. And of course, it’s all food safe and BPA free.

Dual Scale Refractomter with ATC – $14.39 for Prime Members on Amazon Cyber Monday!

Tiaoyeer Brix Refractometer with ATC Digital Handheld Refractometer for Beer Wine Fruit Sugar, Dual Scale-Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 and Brix 0-32% (Black)

Tiaoyeer Brix Refractometer with ATC Digital Handheld Refractometer for Beer Wine Fruit Sugar, Dual Scale-Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 and Brix 0-32% (Black)

More Info

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

  • ACCURATE READINGS : The Brix refractometer can measure brix between 0-32%±0.2% and Specific Gravity between 1.000-1.130, Brix Accuracy: +/-0.2%.
  • ADVANCED AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION(ATC)TECHNOLOGY (10℃~30℃): Adjust Automatically to Compensate for Temperature, Which makes it even easier to get fast results.
  • SIMPLY USE: Using the dropper to take a sample of wort and put it on the prism. Then hold the refractometer up to the light and look scale through the eyepiece, more accurate to measure sugars in verities of melon, fruits or juice.

 

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! 🙂

Ends Today: FermZilla 27 Liter Conical – on sale for $114.99 + Free Keg Lube via William’s Brewing Black Friday Sale

FermZilla 27 Liter Conical Fermenter

FermZilla 27 Liter Conical Fermenter via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

With the FermZilla you have the many of the benefits of a much more expensive stainless conical fermenter but with the additional benefit of being able to see the fermentation process in action and also ferment at pressures up to 30 PSI. See the videos and the instructions below for more details. Stainless handle included.

Included In The Box:
1 x Fermzilla Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve Parts (Pre-Assembled & Attached)
1 x Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
1 x Top Lid with Red PRV (35psi) now upgraded with a thicker O ring for a better seal
1 x Top Lid Screw Cap 1 x 1000mL Collection Container & Lid* [2 x Male Cap Threads] 1 x KegLand Adjustable Easy Opening Tool
1 x Premium 3 Piece Airlock
1 x Approximate Graduations Sticker
1 x Strip Stick On Thermometer
1 x Grommet Bottle Cap (Airlock Port)
1 x Bag Spare Seals
1 x Keg Lube (item D52, for preserving O rings)

Available options include:
Spunding Valve Kit
Zippered Insulated Jacket
Extra Collection Jar

IMPORTANT NOTICE: When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But dont panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns.

Maximum temperature is 130 degrees F., if you pour boiling or near boiling wort into this unit, you will ruin it, and heat damage is not covered by warranty.


 

  • As of this posting, William’s Brewing has this on sale for $114.99 via their Black Friday Sale
