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.

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
  • App features graphing for gravity and alcohol
  • App stores batch records (10) and can email a batch record as a .csv for saving.

Great little device
We really like the ease of use and simplicity of the Easy Dens. It's a great tool for a small brewery.

The Easy-Dens meter is user friendly and provides accurate measurements. Brewing on a small scale, I have much less waste involved with Easy-Dens than a traditional hydrometer. I would highly recommend having one on hand.

Worth it
Easy to use, works great - haven't used a refractometer or hydrometer since I got it. (Well, once to compare - and they were exactly the same...)

Fast, accurate readings. Easy to use with multiple samples.
The EasyDens lets me take daily readings of my beer and mead with out pulling large hydrometer samples. Pulling 20ml per day I can get the gravity readings and I know where my fermentations are. No more guessing when to cold crash or transfer.

Paywall in App
Fantastic product and definitely worth the money if you are looking to make a step to more consistent brewing. However, it is a little cheeky of Anton Paar to ask for additional payments to unlock features in the App.

I think the device is brilliant, but it would be amazing if all the functions were available at a fixed cost.

EasyDens - read manual before purchase, a great product to have accurate density measurements throughout the process (wort to bottling)
I was hesitant at first as I was going after the DM35. I have since seen the cheaper EasyDens at some breweries and decided that it would be the way to go. I have used refractors in the past (manual & auto) and found that the readings fluctuated between samples. EasyDens uses a frequency method to determine the density and does not rely on refraction of light.
Requires a Bluetooth phone to as the user interface

To fully understand the easyDens, I suggest that prospective purchasers read the AQ and manual first as there are some things that are not mentioned until one has the actual unit.

EasyDens defaults to reading SG and density (m/v). It has other units Brix, Plato, Alcohol. Only one of the latter can be enabled for free. I set mine to Plato, and then I would have to pay extra for Brix.

I am happy with the unit and would recommend it it.

Pros:
Very easy to use. It is accurate and also display the sample temperature. Has the ability to plot graphs of gravity, i.e. fermentation progress.
Can be used in presence of alcohol.
Calibration is simple and color of wort of does not affect the reading
Anton Paar support is very good as I had problem when trying to enable Plato

Cons:
Expensive, cannot measure alcohol, and finding that additional units for displaying were in App purchases did not go down well.
The user interface could be improved, I would like to see both SG and Plato at same time, but one has to select one or other before doing the measurement
Make sure there are no air bubbles in the sample tube and keep the syringe in the unit while the reading is being done (this is mentioned in the manual)
