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