Homebrewing Tip of the Week!

How many of you thought that you could toss your hydrometer in the trash when you bought a refractometer?  Well, actually you can retire your hydrometer and use your refractometer to measure final gravity if you use this handy calculator.  Since alcohol is less dense than water, a refractometer won’t accurately measure specific gravity after the yeast have done their work.  This calculator corrects the reading for you so you don’t have to waste wort in a test jar or waste time sanitizing a beer thief.  It is accurate and works with brix refractometers and specific gravity units as well.
