Triple Scale Wine and Beer Hydrometer

Don't Forget to Add a Test Jar!

This triple scale hydrometer is perfect for beer and wine.

When making wine or beer at home you must measure the density of the liquid to figure out when the fermenting is complete. The density indicates how much sugar is left in the mixture for the yeast to consume. The more sugar consumed by the yeast, the more alcohol is in the liquid. To test for this you use a hydrometer. A triple scale hydrometer for home wine or beer making has three different scales marked on the inside of the hydrometer's sealed glass tube. The scales are: specific gravity, potential alcohol and brix.

How to use a Triple Scale Hydrometer:

1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Check your specific beer- or wine-making instructions to find out exactly what scale to use and what readings to look for.

Works great for Wine
This is a must for making Wine so you know what % Alc you are making.

Accurately calibrated & easier to read
Best price. Mine was calibrated accurately. The colors on the scale help readability. Very good product and a good deal. If it were made of an unbreakable polymer casing and if it were designed so the scale was more spread out for even easier reading, would be a 5-star review.

Works as expected
Works as I thought it would. Calibrated with RO water and filtered tap water. Both came in right at 1.000. First brew hit an OG of 1.060 which is where I expected. It does work well with the 14" jar. I made a mark on the jar indicating the least amount of liquid I would need to take a reading.

Good scale
This has a very easy to read scale and has proved to be very accurate. A good deal all around.

Works great
Got this hydrometer when I found my other one was shattered. I got it as a backup but it's easier to read than my one so I verified that they both read exactly the same and started using this one.

Better than other cheap options
This is my fourth hydrometer. The other cheap style I got from my LHBS loses calibration quickly and none of them agreed with each other. This one hasn't had that problem yet and is easier to read.

A must have piece of equipment!
Comes with all the charts and conversions you need to get accurate gravity readings. Simple and basic, and the price couldn't be better. Works great with the 14" test jar.
