Description

If you want a quick and easy way to take gravity readings during the brewing process, then a refractometer is the tool for the job. Taking hydrometer readings during the brew tends to be a time-consuming process, and by the time you get a reading it may be too late to react. This is because you need to take a large sample and cool it to get an accurate reading. A refractometer allows you take instant gravity readings, with just one drop, at any point during the boil, or even during the run off of the sparge during an all-grain brew. These 'during the process' readings allow you to add more water or boil longer so you can attain exactly the gravity you desire.

Traditional refractometers without ATC are calibrated to work at 68°F. The ATC function allows you to use the refractometer in an ambient temperature range of 50-86°F (10-30°C). Since your sample is just one drop, and will quickly adjust to the temperature of the refractometer, the temperature of the sample is irrelevant. This unit also comes with a manual calibration knob that is secured with a lock nut. To calibrate place one drop of distilled water on the testing platform and adjust to zero if necessary. The LED light is a handy feature that helps illuminate the sample and make the scale easier to read.

Features:

  • 0-30 Brix scale
  • 0-1.120 Specific Gravity scale
  • Metal body with rubber grip
  • Adjustable focus eyepiece with rubber grip
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation)
  • LED illumination function

Please Note: This tool is used to measure unfermented wort. Once alcohol is present, the use of a correction table is advised.

What is the difference between the mt700 ($59) and this mt708 ($39)?

BEST ANSWER: I'd go for the mt700 with the internal LED. I bought the mt708 and I have to get directly under a ceiling light in order to read.

It’s okay. Needs quality control.
I like it. Just make sure to calibrate it with distilled water.

It works good for the initial OG testing with hot wort. (No need to cool the wort prior to testing it).

But use a hygrometer first your FG. (Final gravity).

I knocked-off a few stars because the light literally fell out the second time I used it. It has no light now...which sucks for what you pay for it.

Didn’t want the hassle of calling and doing the whole return thing. Poor quality control.

Can't imagine what I did before having this... essential information and let's me hit target gravity every time.

Works well
is spot on with my hydrometer after calibration. Feels a little light so not sure how durable it will be but so far so good!

Accurate and easy to use
Good value for the price. ATC, LED light and adjustable eyepiece makes gravity readings a breeze. The LED light sometimes flickers but it wasn't bad. Can't complain with the price.
