- Ade Advanced Optics dual range refractometer measures the brix and specific gravity of your wort or wine
- Measures brix: 0-32 percent and specific gravity: 1.000-1.120
- Features atc (automatic temperature compensation) for accurate readings
- Aircraft aluminum body, premium optical lens, rubber eye guard
- A refractometer is easier and more accurate than a hydrometer for measuring sugars
Ade Advanced Optics 515-B beer wort and wine refractometer is for measuring the sugar content of beer, includes an automatic temperature compensation of 10 – 30 degree Celsius. It can replace your hydrometer for easier and more accurate measurements. Simply use the dropper to take a sample of wort and put it on the prism. Then hold the refractometer up to the light and look through the eyepiece. Due to the dual scale, there is no need to convert to specific gravity as the scale measures both Brix and SG.
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.
