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! 🙂

This is named calibration solution, but in homebrewing terms, I think it’s better thought of as a “double check you refractometer” solution. Calibration solution for SG and Brix refractometers… water. Distilled or RO water. This particular solution offers you a known gravity liquid (1.0264 sg) that you can use to double check your equipment.
