Refractometers are tools to find the density of unfermented wort or must, giving quick and accurate readings with only a few drops of sample.
This portable refractometer is packed with features to make it perfect for both brewers and winemakers.
Measurements in both °Brix and Specific Gravity are available, and will autocompensate for temperature.
The display has an adjustable focus lens, so there is no need to try and look through the eyepiece while wearing glasses!
Made of light, durable material, and comes with a protective, hard-shell case, a droplet applicator, and a screwdriver for a manual calibration, if you desire.
Since alcohol affects the refractive properties of liquids, the specific gravity refractometer can only be used on unfermented wort or must, or other sugar solutions. Final gravity (density after fermentation) must be calculated, rather than measured directly.

|Position yourself under a light source. Rotate the eyepiece to bring the display into focus. Apply 2-3 drops onto the prism face, close the cover, and view through the eyepiece. After each use, clean the prism face, cover, and drop-applicator with water to ensure a pure sample on next use. If a drying cloth is used on the prism face, make sure it is non-abrasive and lint free.
