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)


 

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.

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

VEE GEE® X-Series Handheld Refractometers are exceptionally simple to operate and provide quick, accurate measurements. These wine and beer refractometers are an excellent way to measure the sugar content in your wort during the mash, pre-boil, and post-boil steps of the process.

Easy to Use
Operation consists of placing 1 or 2 drops of sample on the prism, closing the daylight plate over the sample, then looking through the focusable, cushioned-rubber eyepiece for the readings.

Tool-Free Calibration
The VEE GEE® exclusive Zero-Ring eliminates the hassle of using a separate tool for calibration. Simply place a few drops of distilled water or liquid standard (R.I. oil or prepared sucrose solution) on the prism, turn the built-in Zero-Ring until the shadow line is at the correct value of the liquid, and secure the set screw that’s it.

Accurate
Featuring the largest, easiest-to-read scale available; with clear, sharp figures, screen shading, and incredible contrast. These features significantly enhance overall accuracy even when several different operators use the instrument. Automatic Temperature Compensation frees the user from having to re-calibrate in work environments with large temperature swings. The effective compensation range is 50-86 F(10-30 C). All units feature rubber grips on the body, which block the transmission of hand heat to reduce temperature errors.

Durable
The X-Series models feature rugged construction to provide years of reliable use. The prism is mounted in an all-metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. Also feature non-roll stands to ensure that once the units are placed on a table or bench top, they won’t be prone to roll off the surface.

Compact & Portable
The small size of the X-Series models allows them to be used anywhere the field, plant, or lab.

RANGE: 0 to 32 %
RESOLUTION: 0.2 %
