Description

Anton Paar is a leading producer of analytical testing equipment for commercial breweries. Borrowing some technology from their high end machines, the EasyDens digital gravity/alcohol tester is designed for savvy homebrewers and small commercial breweries.  It is a precision gravity/density testing unit which can accurately read gravity with a tiny 2 ml sample at any point in the brewing process.  Alcohol % can also be tracked at any point during fermentation. The unit hooks up to your smartphone via Bluetooth and stores various fermentation "profiles" enabling you to track fermentation progress, alcohol levels, and help know when it's time to keg & drink your beer!

See the documents tab for frequently asked questions about the Easy Dens.

Features:

  • Take a highly accurate gravity reading at any point in the brewing process even when alcohol is present.
  • Very fast and simple to use
  • Only uses 2ml of sample
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation
  • Connects and displays via free app on your phone or tablet
  • Based on oscillating u-tube principle which is known as world's most accurate testing method
  • Extremely durable
  • Measures in specific gravity and alcohol can be determined with original reading

What’s the difference in this and the original?
Jason Oates on Dec 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The New EasyDens and the EasyDens Gen 1. use the same measurement principle and a similar measurement cell. The core function remains the same. Both devices are supported by the Brew Meister for EasyDens app, which is available in your App Store / Play Store.
Advantages of the New EasyDens:

-New design (smaller and lightweight)
-Higher stability due to optimized and balanced layout
-Faster connection due to new generation Bluetooth chip
-Faster measurement
-Higher accuracy
-Dust and spray water protection (IP65 protection)

Will this device accurately report the ABV of a wine sample, regardless of the amount of residual sugar present?
Brant on May 2, 2021
BEST ANSWER: No, this will take specific gravity before and after fermentation so you can do the math or it will track abv that way. As for reporting ABV, it will only record distilled spirits, even the sugars in liqueur will throw it off. We use it for abv calculations in beer, and I ran it through all of the spirits in our bar. Pretty cool/accurate tool, but won’t tell you abv of a fermented beverage without taking OG and FG
Can this device be used to accurately measure residual sugar in a finished wine?
Brant on May 2, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It can read the specific gravity or brix of a wine before and after fermentation.

So far it's everything I wanted it to be
As others have commented regarding the instructions, what come inside the box are sparse. All of the more detailed manuals are found on their website which can be accessed through the app. The main instruction manual does not require an account, however there are some guides such as one for the old iOS app which do require you to create an account and wait to have it approved.

Regarding the device itself - Setup was simple. It recognized my phone right away. Adding liquid, taking measurements, recording them, etc. works great.

My only want is for the app to be just a little more user friendly. It's kind of clunky and it doesn't allow for manual input (I had a mead started that I wanted to manually record an OG for so that I could use the app to figure out the ABV but was unable to manually add a record.)

Still, in the end I think this will save me money and I've enjoyed using it.

Spot on measurements
Used in two different breweries with different measuring equipment to compare against. The Easy Dens was spot on accurate each time. Really useful when you're filling up your kettle to desired PB gravity.

Well designed device
I find the device well designed and easy to use. My only quibble is that it defaults to specific gravity and I use Brix in my mead making.

Nice Device, App Could Use Some Work
This little guy is excellent for quickly and accurately grabbing a gravity reading. The capabilities to track fermentation by batch is great.

Note that if you use the syringe to degas the sample, expect to go through many syringes. The end of mine is breaking after about two weeks of taking daily samples. We ordered a pack of 100 from a medical supply store.

My biggest complaint is the app that is needed to go along with this. Capturing a reading is easy enough, but the adjusted gravity is not displayed on the screen when capturing the reading. You have to go into the batch info to actually see the temp-corrected value which is a pain when measuring warm wort.

In addition, I do not see how to identify ABV under the beer menu and when swapping to the ABV setting under the spirits portion, the ABV is not accurate.

Maybe some of these features are available when using the subscription version of the app but Anton Paar hasn't made it clear what additional benefits are available under the paid version.

Great tool for the small commercial brewer!
I was a bit skeptical at first, but hot damn, this thing is spot on! We started by cross referencing known standards in the brewery, and it’s dead on. The data tracking is a nice feature, only bummer is having to pay for the app to export data. We have two of them now, one at each of our breweries. Great tool for the tool box without having to bankrupt yourself for other Anton Paar units.
Killer tool for our low budget lab!
