RT-15 Refractometer

Refractometer RF15 with Automatic Temperature Compensation (0-32 Brix)

Honestly, I never thought I would be buying a refractometer for brewing, but I'm glad I did.  The speed at which measurements can be made takes the chore out of gravity measurements and the small sample size required means that I can run more fermentation experiments.

The accuracy is much better than I thought it would be.  The resolution of the scale is 0.2°P which is better than my hydrometer.  In a side by side comparison the overall measurement accuracy was about the same as a hydrometer.  (Post detailing this later)
