Track your fermentation progress without ever disturbing your wort! The Tilt Hydrometer and Thermometer is added directly to your fermenter to provide real-time data on the current gravity and temperature of your wort, eliminating the hassle and potential contamination that comes from opening your fermenter to pull samples. The Tilt is especially useful for brewers fermenting in glass carboys or plastic fermenters that don't have spigots for sample taking.

Designed for homebrewing, the Tilt hydrometer lets you instantly read your brew's specific gravity and temperature on your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet or Tilt Pi. Most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices will work with the Tilt. You can then optionally log data to the cloud using their free Google Sheets template or other 3rd party cloud platforms.

Tilt's goal is to help homebrewers brew better beer. The Tilt hydrometer allows you to check the specific gravity and temperature of your beer while it's fermenting, without ever having to open your fermenter or pour out any of your precious brew. This makes brewing more consistent and easier to track.

Here are some of the new features of the Tilt:

  • Range: Better reception and range. With the increased transmission power your Tilt will send data through larger, thicker-walled fermenters.
  • Precision: Upgraded sensors. With an improved temperature sensor and accelerometer your Tilt will operate with more precision.  
  • Efficiency: Reduced power consumption so more brews, less battery changing.
  • New Look: Newly designed custom circuit board and harness.

If using multiple Tilt hydrometers for different batches of fermenting beer you must use a different color for each batch. The app will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to go with a pre-installed battery that lasts 12-24 months depending on usage. Just download the free app, sanitize your Tilt, drop it in your fermenter, and start taking readings with your phone, tablet, or Tilt Pi.

The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt's range of 0.990 to 1.120. The thermometer is accurate +/- 1°F (+/- 0.5°C).

Download the free Tilt app at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or get the free Tilt Pi download.

I would like to measure the SG in a non-invasive way, since I only ferment 2-3 gallons at a time.

Matthew H on Sep 9, 2021
Second one. I did note that it reads lower than my refractometer initially, but I am pretty sure this is due to the stratification that naturally occurs in the carboy when the wort is still waiting for the yeast to kick in. Once there is fermentation stirring up the solution it tracks right along. Also noticed that it reads a few degrees higher at the start, presumably for the same reason. That also comes into line once fermentation kicks off.

Loved my first one and the control it gives me over my brew and integration with Brewfather app. Will continue to buy/use these until i decide to go with a different brew system where this information is incorporated.

Will this work through a stainless steel fermenter? I will be using the uni conical fermenter.
Chris Maas on Mar 27, 2023
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely Yes! I have the Anvil stainless, it works fine.
Has anyone tried to replace the battery? Wondering how easy or difficult it is.
Danny Griego on Jun 13, 2023
BEST ANSWER: Easy. Rubber gloves or one of those jar opener rubber pads helps get a better grip if needed. Just make sure to get the o ring back in and note that the battery is an odd size (CR123A)
Is this the most current version?
tonya hamman on Feb 17, 2023
BEST ANSWER: There is a pro version that can go through commercial steel fermentation equipment, but that’s overkill for your normal car boy
Will this product work for wine or is it for beer only?
Zayd Riley on Jul 3, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Works for both! I’ve used it for both.
Do the exterior parts of this product (parts which contact beer) contain BPA or phthalates?
Matthew Reardon on Jul 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Do not know. It’s a hard clear plastic cylinder, The cap is a clear flexible plastic and the seal is some kind of white rubber. Do not know what they are made of.
Does this work with pressure fermentation?
Mark Trahan on Aug 18, 2023

I have been brewing for about 9 months now, on my 15th batch and in that time, this has been the best addition to my arsenal of brewing tools. No longer need to mess with hot wort to try to get a good starting gravity read, no longer have to save some brew after the keg transfer to see where I end up, all the while not knowing how the ferment is going, and no longer have to guess where my temps are since this is telling me everything from end to end. This does read through the walls of a grainfather conical. I initially was sending the measures up to the GF cloud but then I stopped doing that to just walk by the fermenter every now and then, snap open the app and get a read. It goes right into the GF app to chart the temp and gravity progress. This blue one is my second tilt so I can track two ferments.

Solid Brewery Tool
I now have Tilts for all 4 of my fermenters. While I still use a hydrometer for my official OG and FG gravity readings, the Tilts are an excellent way to track fermentation progress. I find that I tend to send beer to a keg a bit sooner knowing the SG status from a Tilt.

Great Product
This is a fantastic improvement in tracking fermentation. Really love the interaction with google sheets - just link the sheet to my brewing log.

Worked well with the stainless fermenter as long as the phone is close.

Great tool for monitoring fermentation!
Seems to be fairly accurately tracking hydrometer readings and the temperature, while off 2.5 degrees, is easily calibrated. I did the more complicated two point SG calibration and recommend it for better accuracy.

2nd Tilt helps me know what’s going on
Started to brew larger batches but didn’t upgrade my fermenter (5 gallon Corning kegs w/ spunding valve). So I needed a second Tilt as I’m using two kegs now (about 4.5 gallon of wort in each).

It so cool to know / track what both are now doing and the software / app makes it easy to view!

I'm addicted to my TILT!
This device works exactly as advertised!

I've confirmed it's properly calibrated by cross-referencing it with both a hydrometer and a refractometer.

The reports it generates on google docs does a good job of helping you keep track of fermentation and it's helpful to plan for future fermentation schedules.

Great for monitoring fermentation, but don't depend on it to be precise
These are great tools for monitoring the fermentation and knowing when the fermentation is complete. Good for data logging if you are into that, but don't see it as an accurate scientific tool unless you are willing to spend the time and energy to accurately create a calibration curve.

Love it.
I love being able to track the progress of my fermentation without taking samples or opening the fermenter. Worth the cost to me.
