HomeBrewStuff Graduated Cylinder Glass Test Jar, 3.3 Borosilicate Glass, 250ml and Triple Scale Hydrometer Combo
One of the best choices for heavy use in the Brewery, lab, or classroom where breakage is common. Made to specifications of laboratory grade 3.3 Borosilicate glass for testing higher proof products, this cylinder measures 12′ tall x 1.75′. And this combo includes a high quality glass triple scale beer and wine hydrometer. The 3′ diameter base has 3 contact points to resist tipping. Because this specialized cylinder is intended for quick and clear hydrometer readings there are graduations to insure your getting an accurate reading, and the narrow 1.5′ diameter bore means you can take an accurate reading with less product than a normal graduated cylinder. Comes with pour spout and heavy fire-polished rim to resist chipping. Made of 3.3 Borosilicate glass, graduations at 20ml intervals. Heavy round base measures 3.25 in. diameter, 12 in. tall, 1.75 in. diameter cylinder Triple Scale Hydrometer measures SG, °Plato/Brix, Potential Alcohol. A hydrometer is used to determine the specific gravity (SG) of your beer, this is a measurement of sugar in a liquid. This measurement can also be determined in two other scales °Plato/Brix or Potential Alcohol. The specific gravity is used to determine the alcohol level of your beer and to monitor the fermentation progress. A reading must be taken from cooled wort or wine must BEFORE fermentation, and a second reading is taken AFTER fermentation the difference between the two readings is then plugged into an equation (or online calculator) to determine the alcohol content in your beer or wine. A must have for anybody making wine or beer at home!! DISTILLERS: This hydrometer can be used to determine the OG of your wash or mash, the FG after fermentation, and the ABV before distillation. IT WILL NOT DETERMINE PROOF OR ALCOHOL PERCENTAGE AFTER DISTILLATION. You will need a Proof and Tralle hydrometer for that specific purpose which is the same instrument calibrated for a completely different range of measure.
