ONE OF A KIND!
NO ONE ELSE CARRIES THESE! WE SHOULD KNOW. WE MADE THIS UNIT!
WE MADE THIS UNIT AND ITS THE MOST ACCURATE BEER WORT AND GRAPE MUST HANDHELD REFRACTOMETER IN THE WORLD!

This is a REAL scientific instrument made specifically for Brewers of BIG BEERS!
0-40% Brix Scale / 1.000-1.180 Wort Specific Gravity (OG ONLY/FG use an online calculator!)*
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 machined Aluminum, not "carbon" plastic* Comes in a plastic foam-lined hardcase, with a calibration screwdriver, pipette and users guide
WHY IS THE BREWxSO GREAT?
The BREWx has the BIGGEST Brix Wort SG scale of ANY Refractometer on the PLANET!
The BREWx 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. The old scale was a linear formula that leads to incorrect readings. The higher the Brix content, the more inaccurate it became! 10% Brix doesn't equal 1.040, 20% Brix is not 1.080, etc... This unit corrects those errors!
The BREWfractometer is 50% heavier than the other units. Big deal? This is a true instrument, not a cheap toy! What happens when you drop the imported units...?
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).

One BRAND NEW BREWfractometer Extreme (BREWx)(0-40% Brix / 1.000-1.180 Wort & Must Specific Gravity Scales) Hand Held Refractometer in a foam-lined plastic hard case. This unit is designed specifically for themaking 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 lilfe, 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 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).
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 gravities 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 tannins form the grain.
Unlike a hydrometer, a refractometer is asimple 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 prograrms 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 BREWx 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 recalibration 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).
a pipette for dropping test fluids onto the prism (never dip the refractometer into the test fluid!), a mini screwdriver for scale calibration, and a Users Guide. Comes in a plastic, foam-lined hard case.
Comes with a TEN YEAR Warranty against manufacturers defects!

Homebrewing fun facts :*
Homebrewing was legalized in the USA by former President Jimmy Carter in 1979. The law permits you to brew 100 gallons of homebrew per year if you live on your own, or 200 gallons per household with 2 or more adults.
*ALL of the States in the USA now allow Home Brewing! 'Bout time!
* May 7th is National Homebrewing Day in the USA. This was made official by Congress in 1988.
* Every year since 1979, there has been a National Homebrew Competition. The first competition had 34 entries. In 2010, there were 6,287 entries!
* Brewing in the home began several thousand years ago with the dawn of agriculture.
* Reinheitsgebot, the famous German Purity Law of 1516, stated that beer can only consist of water, barley and hops. Yeast was not a known ingredient until the 1800's and was not added to the German law until the 20th Century. Reinheitsgebot remained in effect until 1987!
