Item Description: Beer Refractometer - Plato & Specific Gravity (D 20/20 °C) - NO ARMOR JACKET
MADE IN THE USA!
INSANE PRICE FOR THE POWER!
DID WE MENTION THAT IT IS MADE IN THE USA? IT IS!
One BRAND NEW MISCO Beer Refractometer features both a Plato and a Specific Gravity (D 20/20)
scale equipping it to make standard measurements of wort used in beer making.
The Plato scale is based on the mathematical relationship between sucrose and
refractive index, as are all Plato refractometers. However, the Specific Gravity
scale was scientifically derived from a beer model with a very complex sugar
profile, which is influenced strongly by maltose, the primary wort sugar. As
there is very little sucrose in wort, Specific Gravity measurements are
naturally more accurate than sucrose-based refractometers. Both scales are
automatically temperature compensated for true wort sugars.
Whether you are a beer chemist working for a multinational brewery, or a passionate brewer crafting one-of-a-kind beer in your own home, the goal of the MISCO Digital Beer Refractometer is to help you by providing the most accurate possible beer measurements from start to finish.
Fast, convenient, and easy to use, the MISCO Digital Beer Refractometer requires only a fraction of the sample size required by traditional hydrometers. Simply place a drop or two of wort in the stainless steel well and press a button. The beer refractometer delivers a nearly instantaneous digital readout on a large backlit LCD display. The digital readout removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny little scale divisions.
Precision is assured thanks to MISCO’s proven OPTICAL-ENGINE®, which is at the heart of every Digital Beer Refractometer. Optical-Engine technology features high-precision sapphire optics, the next hardest substance to diamond, which improves the speed and accuracy of temperature measurements. Competing digital refractometers only use glass prisms. A 1,024 element high-definition detector array provides more than eight times the resolution of competing 128 element low-definition detector arrays. The MISCO array has more than 3,256 pixels per inch (ppi) resolution compared with 400 ppi resolution in competing digital refractometers. The net result is an instrument that is more rugged and more precise.
