This is a automatic temperature compensating (ATC) model with both a Brix (0-32%) and Specific Gravity (1.000-1.120) scale. It comes with a zippered storage bag.
Refractometers are traditionally touted as a tool for all grain brewers since they can be used to quickly monitor the gravity of a fly sparge runoff to prevent from oversparging. However, just about all brewing styles can benefit. Collect a tiny drop of wort, juice, must, etc and drop it on the window to instantly find the gravity without filling a sample tube with 3 ounces. Note: refractometers are accurate in pure sugary liquids but require correction algorithms/calculators to test gravity in liquids containing alcohol.
After realizing how important this scale was to our own brewing, it was obvious that it should be offered to brewhardware customers. The primary purpose of this scale is for accurately weighing out your hop additions but it works great for measuring brewing salts (gypsum for example) and smaller specialty grain additions like black patent and others with high impact. The 650 gram max (just over 16 ounces) has an accuracy of .1 grams, a tare function (zero out your weighing cup/tray), reads in either grams or ounces, and can hold a 16oz Solo cup on the 3" weighing platform. We know you'll like this one.
