Refractometer for measuring sugar levels - NZ$ 45

Need to measure the sugar levels in your brews?

Knowing how much sugar is in your Kombucha is a common concern, especially for diabetics or those simply wanting to consume as little sugar as possible.

A refractometer measures the brix level - grams of sugar per 100 mls and is as easy to do as adding a drop or 2 of your kombucha or Kefir brew to the slide face and looking through the eyepiece. An easy to read scale tells you instantly how much sugar is in your brew.

It aslo works on all sugar related liquids such as fruit juice, soft-drinks, wine, and even honey to help monitor and control sugar levels/concentrations in foods and beverages and of course you brew of Kombucha or water Kefir.

This ATC refractometer comes in a hard plastic case with an eye dropper, screwdriver (to zero the scale if need be) cleaning cloth and of course instructions.
