October 27th only, Refractometers half off

Postby Mob_Barley » Mon Oct 26, 2009 4:00 pm

If anyone has wanted to get a refractometer but thought they were too high, Austin Homebrew Supply is having a sale tomorrow only. Their refractometers, with ATC, which are regular $59.99 are on sale for $29.99, $30 off. Shipping is $7.99, but you can pick up some DME or grain to offset the shipping a little bit. Per the add:

Tuesday Special:
$30 off Refractometers


Refractometer
Great for determining the sugar content for both beer and wine making.

This refractometer is an essential tool for anyone growing their own grapes. It takes the guesswork out of picking decisions because it can accurately measure the sugar in grapes with just 3 drops of juice from grapes on the vine. Just take a few samples from different vines and the sugar content can be determined immediately in the field.

This refractometer has ATC (automatic temperature compensation). This feature allows the user to take a reading in different room and outdoor temperatures, without having to recalibrate the refractometer.

The refractometer can accurately read from 0% to 32% Brix (sugar). It comes with complete directions, a carrying case, and sample suction tube. Length: 6.5" (16.5cm).

This deal is for Tuesday October 27th only.

VV price was $39.99 plus $12.99 shipping. Compared to $29.99 plus $7.99 shipping.

I don't have a lot of confidence in mine, so I don't use it much. I typically take a sample, measure the temp, and go on BeerSmith to calculate the adjusted SG. Then I just pour the sample back. So far it's worked for me.

I do need to start using my refractometer though. It cost too much not to.

Yeah, but most of us don't brew in the dark, man. :wink:
