Hydrometer is used by professionals to measure the alcohol content of wine, beer, kombucha, and other beverages. It comes in three different readings
- Specific gravity to measure OG (Original Gravity) and FG (Final Gravity)
- Brix Scale aka wine hydrometer (or Beer hydrometer to estimate °Plato and °Baumé as well as using this tool)
- Potential Alcohol (alcohol that your beverage will produce after the fermentation of all the sugar into ethanol)
The Specific Gravity Scale is Accurate to 0.002 decimal places and is ideal for any brews with a hydrometer reading between 0.980 to 1.160. The hydrometer scale is calibrated so that distilled water will read 1.000 at 20 Degree Celsius. Please remember to take the lower meniscus reading and keep it at the eye level to overcome parallax error. We have color-coded the hydrometer so that the scales are easy to read and refer to.
It’s long scale can measure ideal sugar concentration, alcohol levels, and gravity readings. You can use it for the measurement of alcohol and the extent of fermentation for a variety of home brews especially beer, wine, port wine, kombucha, and cider. Vinegar or cider makers can calculate the Potential acid from the BRIX Table. Easy use color scale gives you a visual guide of when your brew is ready.
It comes in a plastic case for safety. We place cotton, bubble wrap, and cardboard padding to ensure a safe shipment to your place.
PS: You need to invest in a tall glass or a 30cm long bottle that is long enough to take the reading. Please note that if the hydrometer touches the base of your vessel, then the reading will not be accurate. For more instructions please refer here
