Item Description: BREWfractometer eXtreme (BREWx) Portable Brix & Beer Wort Specific Gravity Refractometer (0-40% Brix & 1.000-1.180 Wort SG) - In a HARD CASE!


This is a HIGH Quality Refractometer!

 This unit is made of durable Aluminum and has a 10 year Warranty!  

This is a REAL scientific instrument made specifically for Brewers of BIG BEERS!

Product Specs:

* 0-40% Brix Scale / 1.000-1.180 Wort Specific Gravity (OG ONLY!)
* Accurate to +/- 0.20% Brix / +/- 0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
* Scale Divisions: 0.20% / 0.001 Wort Specific Gravity
* Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)
* Sturdy design, made of durable machined Aluminum, not "carbon" plastic
* Comes in a blue plastic foam-lined hardcase, with a calibration screwdriver, pipette and users guide


  • The BREWx has the BIGGEST Brix Wort SG scale of ANY Refractometer on the PLANET!
  • The BREWx is the most accurate Wort and Must Specific Gravity Refractometer in the world!  How?  We actually corrected the flawed scale of the other units after seeing that the SG of the old refractometers and a hydrometer weren't the same.  The old scale was a linear formula that leads to incorrect readings.  The higher the Brix content, the more inaccurate it became!  10% Brix doesn't equal 1.040, 20% Brix is not 1.080, etc...  This unit corrects those errors!
  • The BREWx is 50% heavier than the other units.  Big deal?  This is a true instrument, not a cheap toy!  What happens when you drop the imported units...?
  • The BREWx comes in a plastic hard case, not a zipper bag!  The hard case is to ensure that your unit arrives safely and in one piece, and will stay that way once you own it.  The zipper bag used by the other guys is used to keep the shipping weight down and not to keep it safe (in shipment or in the long run).   


Are you tired of not hitting your desired target gravities? Have you tried to cool a large sample so you could use a hydrometer and see what your gravity is? A refractometer allows you take instant gravities readings at any point during the boil, or run off from the mash. On the fly readings allow you to add more water or boil longer so you can attain exactly the gravity you desire or stop sparging before you extract tannins form the grain. Unlike a hydrometer, a refractometer is a simple solution requiring only a couple drops for a sample.

Refractometers measure degrees brix, which are nearly equivalent to Balling or Plato. A specific gravity scale for unfermented wort is also included.  For reading once fermentation has started software programs like ProMash and Beer Smith are recommended.

Here’s how: A refractometer instantly reads gravity, in Brix, and specific gravity for unfermented wort by measuring the degree that light passing through the sample is bent. Refraction is what makes a pencil look bent when dipped in a glass of water. If you were to stick a pencil in a series of glasses holding increasingly concentrated sugar water, you would see the pencil apparently bends to a greater degree as the sugar content rises. A refractometer works on the same principal.

Easy to use: Apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover and make sure the glass has no dry spots or air bubbles. Wait 30 seconds to allow the sample to come to ambient temperature. Look through the eyepiece while aiming your refractometer at a light source. The meter will show a line between blue and clear. This line will correspond with the brix scale on the side of the viewing screen.
To calibrate: Place one drop of distilled water on the prism face and turn the manual calibration screw to it reads 0 Brix if necessary.

The BREWx use ambient light, no battery or power source is required. Models with the “ATC” suffix are equipped with “Automatic Temperature Compensation” for accurate measurements without recalibration after shifts in ambient working temperature (field use).  You don't need a temperature correction chart if you take readings when the ambient air temp is between 50-86'F (10-30'C).

Included are: a pipette for dropping test fluids onto the prism (never dip the refractometer into the test fluid!), a mini screwdriver for scale calibration, and a Users Guide.  Comes in a plastic, foam-lined hard case.
