Description

Track your fermentation progress without ever disturbing your wort! The Tilt Hydrometer and Thermometer is added directly to your fermenter to provide real-time data on the current gravity and temperature of your wort, eliminating the hassle and potential contamination that comes from opening your fermenter to pull samples. The Tilt is especially useful for brewers fermenting in glass carboys or plastic fermenters that don't have spigots for sample taking.

Designed for homebrewing, the Tilt hydrometer lets you instantly read your brew's specific gravity and temperature on your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet or Tilt Pi. Most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices will work with the Tilt. You can then optionally log data to the cloud using their free Google Sheets template or other 3rd party cloud platforms.

Tilt's goal is to help homebrewers brew better beer. The Tilt hydrometer allows you to check the specific gravity and temperature of your beer while it's fermenting, without ever having to open your fermenter or pour out any of your precious brew. This makes brewing more consistent and easier to track.

Here are some of the new features of the Tilt:

  • Range: Better reception and range. With the increased transmission power your Tilt will send data through larger, thicker-walled fermenters.
  • Precision: Upgraded sensors. With an improved temperature sensor and accelerometer your Tilt will operate with more precision.  
  • Efficiency: Reduced power consumption so more brews, less battery changing.
  • New Look: Newly designed custom circuit board and harness.

If using multiple Tilt hydrometers for different batches of fermenting beer you must use a different color for each batch. The app will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to go with a pre-installed battery that lasts 12-24 months depending on usage. Just download the free app, sanitize your Tilt, drop it in your fermenter, and start taking readings with your phone, tablet, or Tilt Pi.

The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt's range of 0.990 to 1.120. The thermometer is accurate +/- 1°F (+/- 0.5°C).

Download the free Tilt app at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or get the free Tilt Pi download.

Want to monitor specific gravity without exposing my beer to excess oxygen when taking samples from a PET carboy.

Very Nice Addition to My Picobrewery
I have found the Tilt to be as advertised. It is working well in my first batch. I do see the gravity move around a little (0.001 SG and 0.03 P) and think this may be caused because it is currently operating during high krausen early in a lager fermentation.

After it arrived, I was excited to see how it worked and thought I would try it out in a 2L yeast starter. The temperature remained stable. Temporarily stopping the stir bar allowed the gravity reading to stabilize and allowed me to track the yeast starter's progress.

The following comments may be due to the fact that this is my first batch with the Tilt and I haven't figured out all the details...

- I was surprised to find out that I needed to have my iPad connected to the Tilt to upload the time/temperature/specific gravity information to the cloud. Luckily, the Bluetooth signal is strong enough to keep my iPad at my desk inside the house instead of out of reach out in the garage.

- Also, the iPad must remain awake throughout the data collection period. I had to turn off Auto-Lock on my iPad and must leave it plugged in during data collection.

Recommendations at this point:

- It would be nice if the Tilt unit included a small amount of onboard memory to record the time/temperature/specific gravity until the unit connected to the Tilt Application to upload the data to the cloud.

- It would also be nice if the Tilt Application displayed the time/temperature/specific gravity information in a table and graph. This would augment the current capability to view this information on the Cloud.

Great Tech for Better Beer
I was a little hesitant to believe the reviews that this would work with stainless conical fermentors but can say that it does! The range is greatly reduced if inside metal fermentor but does still work for me and now have for of these Tilt hydrometers which I use in both SS Brewtech Chronicals and the Brewbuckets without issue. Need to keep iPad or old phone within maybe 10 feet to keep steady signal.

Ease of controlling fermentation and getting feedback on the rate of fermentation has greatly helped improve my quality of beer. Being able to log-in online and see graphs realtime for each fermentor on specific gravity and temp is easy and hugely valuable. No doubt when fermentation has come near completion and time to keg.

I highly recommend and I will not do another brew without using the Tilt Hydrometer. Gotta love new tech!

Get Tilt2 - not this one
This is Tilt 1. Tilt 2 was launch in late 2020. Get that one.

Compared to other this is your best option. Simple and more accurate.
