YOU, yes, YOU, are a smart individual!
You are inquiring about the BEST Wort measuring Refractometer on the planet! Consider yourself applauded and lauded for your awesomeness! 1st place medals await you after you make THIS purchase! Congratulations in advance for your Bourbon Barrel Aged Brettanomyces Habenaro and Toasted Coconut Porter winning 1st PLACE! :)
The AMERICAN ENGINEERED BREWfractometer has arrived! The WORLD'S FIRST AND BEST Brix and Wort/Must SG Refractometer!
ONE OF A KIND! NO ONE ELSE CARRIES THESE! WE MADE THIS UNIT FOR OUR CLIENTS IN 2008 AND ITS THE MOST ACCURATE BEER WORT AND GRAPE MUST HANDHELD REFRACTOMETER IN THE WORLD!
THIS UNIT IS A 0.0-32.0% BRIX REFRACTOMETER WITH A SPECIAL 1.000-1.140 WORT/MUST SPECIFIC GRAVITY SCALE FOR BEER & WINE MAKERS!
A PROPRIETARY BIG PRINT SCALE!
Did we mention that it's DEADLY ACCURATE on OG Readings? Super Fast? Helps you save beer from your slow, glutinous Hydrometer? We are excited and getting ahead of ourselves...
This is a HIGH Quality item, please don't let the low price fool you! This unit is made of durable, heavy Aluminum and has a 10 YEAR WARRANTY against defects! The cheap import units that pull apart in your hand come in the flimsy zipper bags! They have a warranty? Of 90 days?
No other MANUFACTURERS/ENGINEERS of Refractometers back their products like we do!
* 0-32% Brix Scale / 1.000-1.140 Wort Specific Gravity
* Accurate to +/- 0.20% Brix / +/- 0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
* Scale Divisions: 0.20% / 0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
* Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)
* Sturdy design, made of durable CNC machined Aluminum, not "carbon" plastic
* Comes in a gray foam-lined hard plastic case, with a calibration screwdriver, pipette, micro fiber cleaning cloth and users guide
WHY IS THE BREWfractometer SO GREAT? Excellent question right!? Why not get the cheap unit from Hong Kong? It's the same unit right? Eh, no it isn't. Not even close. Let's compare "apples to oranges" here:
ACCURATE SCALE - WHY do the other ones give you incorrect SG readings?
The BREWfractometer is the most accurate Wort and Must Specific Gravity Refractometer in the world! How? We actually corrected the flawed scale of the other units after seeing that the SG of the old refractometers and a hydrometer weren't the same (% Brix x 4 isn't accurate!). The old scale was a linear formula that leads to incorrect readings. The higher the Brix content, the more inaccurate it became!
A SOLID INSTRUMENT!
The BREWfractometer is 50% heavier than the other units. Big deal? This is a true instrument, not a cheap toy! Do they smell like they came from a box of cereal? What happens when you drop the imported units...? Do you really want to brew your "Pliny the Elder" clone with that?
COMES IN A STOUT CASE (pun intended)!
The BREWfractometer comes in a plastic hard case, not a zipper bag! The hard case is to ensure that your unit arrives safely and in one piece, and will stay that way once you own it. The zipper bag used by the other guys is used to keep the shipping weight down and not to keep IT safe (in shipment or in the long run).
OURS ARE MADE OF STURDY ALUMINUM!
A GOOD DEAL IS ONLY GOOD IF THE PRODUCT LASTS... AND THE SELLER IS STILL AROUND!
THE AVERAGE ONLINE SELLER IS GONE IN 6-18 MONTHS!
WHAT DO YOU DO THEN?
WE'VE BEEN SELLING ONLINE SINCE 2001!
NO ONE HAD BEEN SELLING LONGER. NO ONE!
A QUICK DESCRIPTION:
BREWfractometer (0.0-32.0% Brix / 1.000-1.140 Wort & Must Specific Gravity Scales) Hand Held Refractometer in a foam-lined plastic hard case. This unit is designed specifically for the making of BEER and WINE! This unit is also great for the testing of Fruits, Vegetables and Grasses, Wine or Beer makers and for the maintenance of CNC Coolants (Soluble Oils, Semi-Synthetics, Neo-Synthetics and Synthetics) and Water Soluble Drawing & Stamping Compounds. WE ARE METALWORKING EXPERTS! Ask the competition what a "Refractometer Chart" is! They won't know! Imagine using your BEER Refractometer for something else?! Yes you could!
Fruits, Vegetables and Grasses: This unit will help you monitor the sugar levels of your crops, plants and trees. A valuable tool to help determine if it's the right time for harvest or you need to alter your plant food. Take this item with you to your local farmer's market and buy the best quality!
Metalworking Fluids: Help maintain your coolant levels to improve finishes, extend tool life, elongate your coolant life and save you money! Excellent for Soluble Oils, Semi-Synthetics, and Synthetics! This is THE unit that is used around the world at Boeing, Airbus, Ford Motor Company, Toyota, West Coast Choppers (now closed - BOO!) and other manufacturer's big and small!
Beer & Wine: Use the Brix readings to get your Wort and Must sugars and help to determine your finished alcohol readings (use in conjunction with a hydrometer - find FREE conversion spreadsheets online, just Google it!).
BEER AND WINE MAKING INFORMATION: Are you tired of not hitting your desired target gravities? Have you tried to cool a large sample so you could use a hydrometer and see what your gravity is? A refractometer allows you take instant gravity readings at any point during the boil, or run off from the mash. On the fly readings allow you to add more water or boil longer so you can attain exactly the gravity you desire or stop sparging before you extract tannin's form the grain. Unlike a hydrometer, a refractometer is a simple solution requiring only a couple drops for a sample. Refractometers measure degrees brix, which are nearly equivalent to Balling or Plato. A specific gravity scale for unfermented wort is also included. For reading once fermentation has started software programs like ProMash and Beer Smith are recommended.
Here’s how: A refractometer instantly reads gravity, in Brix, and specific gravity for unfermented wort by measuring the degree that light passing through the sample is bent. Refraction is what makes a pencil look bent when dipped in a glass of water. If you were to stick a pencil in a series of glasses holding increasingly concentrated sugar water, you would see the pencil apparently bends to a greater degree as the sugar content rises. A refractometer works on the same principal.
Easy to use: Apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover and make sure the glass has no dry spots or air bubbles. Wait 30 seconds to allow the sample to come to ambient temperature. Look through the eyepiece while aiming your refractometer at a light source. The meter will show a line between blue and clear. This line will correspond with the brix scale on the side of the viewing screen.
To calibrate: Place one drop of distilled water on the prism face and turn the manual calibration screw to it reads 0 Brix if necessary. The BREWfractometer use ambient light, no battery or power source is required. Models with the “ATC” suffix are equipped with “Automatic Temperature Compensation” for accurate measurements without re-calibration after shifts in ambient working temperature (field use). You don't need a temperature correction chart if you take readings when the ambient air temp is between 50-86'F (10-30'C). Hot samples can create micro climate and therefore vault up the temperature of the refractometer - temporarily. Blow on your samples like they were hot soup to cool them off before testing - or just wait 20 seconds. You want good beer right? Follow these directions!
Included are: A pipette for dropping test fluids onto the prism (never dip the refractometer INTO the test fluid!), a mini screwdriver for scale calibration, microfiber wiping cloth and a Users Guide. Comes in a GRAY plastic, foam-lined hard case.
Comes with a TEN YEAR Warranty against manufacturers defects! No one else IN THE WORLD does that! You don't have to worry about OUR quality! You don't have to wonder if we'll be around if you ever have a question!
