Test lab notes
For those of us who love immediate gratification, the edrometer can test samples of any temperature and automatically adjust its reading. It calculates specific gravity, density, Brix, Plato, Baume, sugar concentration, potential alcohol, ABV, proof, and temperature within seconds. We were able to sample several liquids in quick succession, and it’s a slick machine that’s relatively easy to clean. Sample size is larger than other similar digital devices, which is a small concern for homebrewers, and ABV in beer has to be calculated the old-fashioned way. Our cross-checks with an analog hydrometer and refractometer showed the readings to be correct, but the price is a bit steep for a unit that isn’t handheld. Useful in a lab or small home brewery.
