The definition is: One degree Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution.
I experimented adding 20 grams of sugar into 100 grams of water and then tested the solution. I was mistakenly expecting a reading of 20 brix, so I was confused to see the actual reading which was 16.6 brix.
I spent an hour thinking that maybe the device was not calibrated or there was problem with my sugar or water.
Then I realized that the actual calculation should have been "sugar / (water + sugar)", so it was 20/(100+20) = 16.6%
I tried with other amounts and the calculations seems to be the ok.
Hope this is useful to anyone.
The display in the scope is crystal clear, and the line which marks the degrees Brix for a measurement is very clear and easy to read. Not much light is required to be able to read, which is great because our shop is pretty dark in the area where the machines are going.
I tested the refractometer using bottled drinking water and zeroed the line. I made a 10 percent by mass sucrose solution using my kitchen scale: 90g water, 10g sugar. The refractometer showed approximately 10.8 degrees Brix, so it seems to be very close tolerance, definitely good enough for determining coolant water/oil ratios.
All in all, a very good item. I might buy one for myself just because of how cool it is. To be able to measure the speed of light traveling through a fluid at reasonable accuracy with a $30 device you can hold in your hand and even a baby can operate? That's pretty awesome.
The build quality is good and the readings are accurate. It feels like a solid unit in your hand and the included case is sturdy and minimalist. It is exactly what I was hoping for. The ability to calibrate it is nice as well.
If you are looking for one of these for beer making, I'd definitely consider this one. Keep in mind, the scales vary from one to another, so make sure you are picking one up that suits your needs. This one measures in Brix.
The biggest lesson I learned however, was that it should not be used in the freezing cold! My OG was way high and after taking everything inside again (from around 0 °C outside) the readings made more sense.
I don't understand the hate for refractometers and I'm glad I got one, especially at only a fraction of the cost you pay at brew supply stores. Cheers!
The description states it comes in a clear case, which historically has been a hardcase with a nice fitted foam insert. Mine came in a loose cheaply made zipper bag not too different from your typical kids pencil case. Not particularly thrilled about that. Would have been nice if it had some elastic or velcro that kept it from bouncing around in that bag or something.
