This product falls into one of those categories - it is something that you should have, but can't justify spending more money on a lab grade piece of equipment. There are too many other things that I need in brewing beer, and my hydrometers work rather well. The problem with using a hydrometer is the wasted beer. How much easier it is to pull several drops from your fermenting beer than to drain it into a test jar and then pitch it. After reading a lot about digital refractometers, I settled on this one.

To begin with, this is a precision instrument. After it arrived, I quickly assessed that a carrying case was definitely needed. Having it packed into a padded case allows me to sleep well every night. The instrument arrived in great condition, packaged really well. READ THE DIRECTIONS. Although you might think it is easy, take 5-minutes out of your precious time and read the directions. It might not reveal anything that you do not already know, but it does allow you to rest assured that when you take the reading the proper way, and clean the pan after each use.

It is also important to understand how Brix is different than OG/FG is different than Plato. If you use this instrument as it should be used and treat it as a precision instrument, anyone who brews beer should find this produce one of the best investments they make on any piece of equipment.

I use it during homebrewing. Provides consistent, accurate results when following the directions. Key details:
1) Make sure the sample put on is representative (that the dropper has just the sample, not water or something else)
2) clean where the sample goes on the refractometer between uses
3) give the sample and sesor a moment (about 1 minute) to come to a consistent temperature on the sensor (otherwise you will get a low reading as the sensor and sample come into temperature equilibrium).

Maybe not necessary, but a great tool.

I used this for finishing Maple Syrup. I had been trying to determine sugar content using temperature and a hydrometer. I found both very difficult to use. The refractometer was much easier. I just put a drop of solution onto the prism and it instantly gave me a reading. I would then absorb the solution with a paper towel, then put clear water into the reservoir and then absorb that with another paper towel. Very easy and I think the readings were quite accurate.

I am in love with this instrument. No more large samples. No more phony readings from badly made refractometers. I take more readings now throughout process because it is such a pleasure to do and so accurate. Holds calibration brilliantly. A good investment for my brew lab. I am a big fan of Milwaukee products. They are fairly priced and just work without problems.

I'd been using a regular refractometer for a while but let's be honest, after a couple of beers, or if your eyes aren't prefect, it's a pain. This thing works great. Takes a minute or two to normalize and you are ready to rock and roll. I find myself taking a lot more readings as a result.

Product exactly as pictured and described. I used this all season long while producing Maple Syrup. Accurate readings - checked it against my friends refractometer and readings were the same. Easy to use, portable for use in the field.

Has dramatically improved my commercial brewing consistency & efficiency. Now I can quickly stop my sparge when I get to to my OG. Depending on the batch I may have 2 runnings - Target OG and Session OG aka Partigyle. I like it.

I also made my own case using Micheal's craft box and spray foam. Total was $10 vs. $30 for factory case.

I use this for home brewing. A bit of an extravagance I know. I find the readings to be repeatable and accurate
when compared to a hydrometer. The build quality is very good. It is really nice to be able to spot check gravities
thru-out the brewing process with speed and ease. Recommended.
