Product Description

This refractometer is for measuring the sugar content of beer and includes an automatic temperature compensation of 10 - 30 degree Celsius. This refractometer 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 convert to specific gravity as the scale measures both Brix and SG. Comes in a hard carry case with a 1 year warranty. Please check out other refractometers available from Agriculture Solutions LLC, custom ranges available on request.

I use this when Im brewing my beer to check the gravity and works great.

Great little refractometer that gives sugar readings in both degrees Brix and Specific Gravity. I am using this in my yeast lab professionally and in my homebrewery for OG. The automatic temperature correction takes about 30 seconds with hot wort (because it basically cools the 2-3 drops of wort you use by the refractometer acting as a heat sink).

NOTE!!! Refractometers can only be used to measure Original Gravity! After fermentation begins alcohol in the beer will throw off the ability for refractometers to measure accurately. You must still use a hydrometer for post fermentation gravity readings.

Unfortunately this refractometer is NOT the one made by Agriculture Solutions LLC. I tried to return the item unde warranty or exchange and they said this item is NOT theirs. I calibrated this item to 1.000 and it still reads between 12 and 18 points of gravity higher! Spend the extra money and get a different one.

I agree with Pat the Plumber. This refractometer is still listed as delivered with a hard case and it isn't. I also read the comment from the seller Haoqian. but i never saw where this item is now delivered with a soft case. It still says in the Description that it comes with a hard case and it doesn't. While I think the product is satisfactory the listing is NOT. As such I'm rating this product a one for misrepresentation. The seller is aware of the fact that people aren't happy with what he ships but he doesn't take steps to properly inform customers. I also think Haoqian is a lair that they mysteriously ran out of hard cases and now are supplying the soft case. the soft case has been manufactured for this refractometer and I'm certain he knew of the change. But he sits on the side line and allows customers to be uninformed. You need to update your ad for this item. You tout a two year warranty if the hard case doesn't ship with item but never mention this until customer complains. There isn't a two year warranty included with my refractometer. I usually take this stuff in stride but not this time because you know of the change but do nothing about it. Shame on you. you update this ad or you'll get it back pronto. i have 30 days and i'll act.

This does not replace a hydrometer to get the SG for wort. The scale is off. The SG may match the brix for wine readings, but it doesn't for the wort when making beer. If you have Beersmith or another calculator, you can take the measurement in Brix and convert it. But at that point you may as well buy a refract that only has the 1 scale for Brix.

Also, the picture is inaccurate. This does not come with a hardcase. Comes with the soft case only.

Giving it two stars because it does measure the Brix. But the first thing listed in the advertisement is for "beer wort", and the dual scale is not calibrated for that. There are other refracts out there specifically calibrated for unfermented beer/wort.

One of the reasons I bought this particular refractor, aside from the five 5-star ratings, was that it came with a "hard carry case". When I recieved this item yesterday, there was no case. The invoice from Sportswarehouse, the supplier, stated that, because I didn't pay the top price(what does that mean?) the item would not include a soft case, but the warranty would increase from 1 to 2 years. The only price listed was $48.94 and that included a hard case. Nowhere do the words "soft case" appear in the description of this item.. And I would rather have the case than an additional year of warranty. I e-mailed Sportswarehouse with this fact and my answer was virtually the same as on the invoice and if I wasn,t happy with that answer, I could send the refractor back. The least they could have done was to explain why they didn't send me what I ordered.

Yes, I've just confirmed that this listing is false after direct communication from Agricultural Solutions, LLC. They do not manufacture the inferior product that is shown here. I feel bad that their name is being used falsely to sell this product. Either there is a massive misunderstanding, or sportswarehouse is being outright fraudulent here. I'm guessing its the latter, but I have no other proof. Based on the other reviews here, I'm not the only one who has found this out the hard way.

This particular refractometer is junk, plain and simple. I calibrated it properly as instructed, each time I used it, but the readings for unfermented wort are just way off. I'm talking both brix and S.G. I confirmed this with my trusty hydrometer (YES, I've already ruled out any issues with my hydrometer)

I partly blame myself for going after the cheapest cost unit on Amazon, but this needs to be fixed immediately before others suffer. Amazon, do what's right and look into this issue.

Things to remember. This is only accurate before fermentation starts and needs to be used on liquid so if your must is a slurry (you are making apple cider) it might be difficult to get a good reading. Also, the maximum reading is 32 Brix which depending on what conversion table or formula you use is at the top end of expected alcohol. It would be nice to have a range where you are not using the top of your scale. If you want to make something very strong and sweet you might want to excede 32 Brix. Years ago I used a standard scientific Abbe refractomer and converted index of refraction to % potential alcohol. It had much better range.
