Ade Advanced Optics Beer Wort and Wine Refractometer Double Scale 1.000-1.120 S.G + Brix 0-32% by Ade Advanced Optics

More Info

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

  • 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.

RSG-100ATC Dual Scale Refractometer with ATC… $9.99 + Free Shipping!

RSG-100ATC 0-32% Brix Specific Gravity Refractometer Fruit Juice beer

RSG-100ATC 0-32% Brix Specific Gravity Refractometer Fruit Juice beer

More Info

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

The model RSG-100ATC is the most popular model for beer brewing!

Brix Refractometer is developed for working with sugar related liquids such as fruit juice, soft-drinks, wine, and honey to help monitor and control sugar concentrations in foods and beverages. It is also useful in checking the “ripeness”of fruit in the field and verifying product quality after harvesting and/or controlling concentrations during processing and packaging. Refractometer provide critical information to ensure product quality.RHB-32ATC is commonly used for controlling the concentration of various industrial fluids like cutting lubricants and flux rinsing compounds.

Description: RSG-100ATC

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 (for alcohol reading, best use in conjunction with a hydrometer)

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!


 

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! 🙂
