Refractometer

Refractometer

The scientific instrument measures the soluble solids percentage of fruit, also called the Brix level. It allows you to pick your fruit to measure and insure the proper sweetness and maturity. It measures from 0 to 32%. This ATC model automatically compensates for temperature. You simply put a drop of juice from the fruit on the glass and hold the meter up to the light to read the brix levels. This tool is invaluable to wine and cider makers but is also used growers of all fruits. For example each fruit varies by variety but apples are gennerally picked at a brix of 12-17%. Blueberries about 12% and grapes and plums at 20-25% or even higher. A general chart of expected brix levels is included. You can even use it to select the best fruit at the market.
