An affordable and accurate Brix refractometer to measure the sugar content of your fermentations, such as kombucha!

A refractometer (sugar tester) is a tool used to measure the sugar concentration of a solution.

The optical refractometer is ideal if you want to know the sugar content of a liquid, such as kombucha, kefir, or maple water.

Place a few drops of liquid on this accurate and easy-to-use tool to instantly determine the density of the liquid.

The digital refractometer works by measuring the refraction of light in a solution. The dual scale reads in Brix and SG (gravity). 1 Brix is equivalent to about 1% sugar.

A Brix refractometer is easier and more accurate than a hydrometer for measuring sugar.

However, a sugar tester is not mandatory in kombucha making.

Learn how to measure sugar in your kombucha using a refractometer.
