Description

VEE GEE® X-Series Handheld Refractometers are exceptionally simple to operate and provide quick, accurate measurements.  These wine and beer refractometers are an excellent way to measure the sugar content in your wort during the mash, pre-boil, and post-boil steps of the process.
 
Easy to Use
Operation consists of placing 1 or 2 drops of sample on the prism, closing the daylight plate over the sample, then looking through the focusable, cushioned-rubber eyepiece for the readings.
 
Tool-Free Calibration
The VEE GEE® exclusive Zero-Ring eliminates the hassle of using a separate tool for calibration. Simply place a few drops of distilled water or liquid standard (R.I. oil or prepared sucrose solution) on the prism, turn the built-in Zero-Ring until the shadow line is at the correct value of the liquid, and secure the set screw that's it.
 
Accurate
Featuring the largest, easiest-to-read scale available; with clear, sharp figures, screen shading, and incredible contrast. These features significantly enhance overall accuracy even when several different operators use the instrument. Automatic Temperature Compensation frees the user from having to re-calibrate in work environments with large temperature swings. The effective compensation range is 50-86 F(10-30 C). All units feature rubber grips on the body, which block the transmission of hand heat to reduce temperature errors. 
 
Durable
The X-Series models feature rugged construction to provide years of reliable use. The prism is mounted in an all-metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. Also feature non-roll stands to ensure that once the units are placed on a table or bench top, they won't be prone to roll off the surface.
 
Compact & Portable
The small size of the X-Series models allows them to be used anywhere the field, plant, or lab.

Wish my eyesight was better
With my eyesight, granularity is 0.25 Brix only.

Highly Accurate built Ruggedly
The initial testing and use of this refractometer is it is very accurate and very heavy and sturdy compared to my other refractometer. The quality difference is obvious. I recommend this refractometer over the cheaper ones if you are looking for quality and accuracy.

Works great
I bought this one as a back up but it soon became my goto hydrometer.

Nice To Have On Hand
This is a great tool to have on hand during the boil. It's nice to be able to check your gravity very quickly at any giving point with just a few drops from your paddle. This is a sturdy product and seems to be built to last.

Quality product
I love this refractometer. Simple no fuss readings all you need to know is simple math!

well made - Brix only
There is no question that this Refractometer is well made. The ATC is a great feature as well, and I have no regrets with it.

It does not have specific gravity measurements, and you will need to convert from Brix if you want those measurements. Not the end of the world, but I missed this specification before purchasing.

Works well, spendy
I'd love to have two dimensions of review-quality to work with. On features, this is a five-star product. It does a great job of doing its job, what more can I say? Readout is clear, temp-correction means I don't have to futz around with cooling samples for my hydrometer. It is also sturdy as all get-out.

For anyone doing fly sparging, a refractometer is simply a must. I get quick and accurate readouts of the current gravity of runoff, and when you're reaching the end of the run the gravity tends to drop rather quickly.

Of course, It's also like $115 normally priced. I got one during one of their Daily Deal runs for considerably less. So, that's why I only gave it four stars.

Great in what counts
Having worked with other refractometers; I can tell that this is high quality with sturdy construction. My only compliant is that there are cheaper, less rugged meters that have a duel scale with SG which is commonly what is needed with small batch recipes or a more finite scale. ATC is also a function I highly recommend having to skip one more step in the conversion with alcohol present.
