An affordable and accurate refractometer to measure the sugar content of your fermentations, such as kombucha!
A refractometer 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 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 refractometer is easier and more accurate than a hydrometer for measuring sugar.
However, a refractometer is not mandatory in kombucha making.
