Used to measure specific gravity, potential alcohol and brix.

TRIPLE SCALE HYDROMETER (10.5")

When making beer you must measure the density of the liquid to know when the fermenting is complete. The more sugar consumed by the yeast, the more alcohol is in the liquid. To test for this you use a hydrometer. This 3-scale hydrometer can measure specific gravity, potential alcohol & balling / brix. The storage Tube can be used as a test jar. Specific gravity scale ranges from 0.80-1.150; potential ABV scale 0-16%; sugar per liter scale 0-34.

 

Included

  • (1) Triple Scale Hydrometer (10.5")

 

Brewing Note

Althought you can use the packing tube as a test jar, we recommend buying a Test Jar. Always sanitize before using.

TRIPLE SCALE HYDROMETER INSTRUCTIONS 1. Sanitize Your Equipment Clean and sanitize all of the equipment that will touch the fermenting liquid, including the triple scale hydrometer. Allow all of your equipment to dry. *This step is only necessary if you are taking a reading inside the fermenter or will be puting the wort back in the fermenter. 2. Take Your Reading 1. Draw a test sample of liquid into the test jar. The test jar is a tall, slender tube in which the triple scale hydrometer will float. Do not to put so much test liquid into the jar that it overflows when you put in the hydrometer. 2. Bring the sample to the temperature marked on the hydrometer. Each hydrometer is calibrated for a certain temperature. This is usually somewhere between 60 and 70 degrees F. The reading will be inaccurate if the test sample is not at this temperature. 3. Hold the hydrometer by the top and slowly lower it into the test jar. Just before you let go, twist it so that it slowly spins. This ensures that no bubbles cling to the hydrometer and cause it to float higher than it normally would. Make sure the test jar is level so the hydrometer does not touch the sides. 4. Note the level at which the hydrometer emerges from the liquid. The surface of the liquid will be a concave shape called the meniscus. Take the reading from eye level at the bottom of the meniscus. Check your specific beer-making instructions to find out exactly what scale to use and what readings to look for.

1. Sanitize Your Equipment

Clean and sanitize all of the equipment that will touch the fermenting liquid, including the triple scale hydrometer. Allow all of your equipment to dry.


*This step is only necessary if you are taking a reading inside the fermenter or will be puting the wort back in the fermenter.


 

2. Take Your Reading

1. Draw a test sample of liquid into the test jar. The test jar is a tall, slender tube in which the triple scale hydrometer will float. Do not to put so much test liquid into the jar that it overflows when you put in the hydrometer.

2. Bring the sample to the temperature marked on the hydrometer. Each hydrometer is calibrated for a certain temperature. This is usually somewhere between 60 and 70 degrees F. The reading will be inaccurate if the    test sample is not at this temperature.

3. Hold the hydrometer by the top and slowly lower it into the test jar. Just before you let go, twist it so that it slowly spins. This ensures that no bubbles cling to the hydrometer and cause it to float higher than it normally would. Make sure the test jar is level so the hydrometer does not touch the sides.
