OPTi digital refractometer - Wine (Brix/Oechsle)
This refractometer has been specifically designed with winemakers in mind. It incorporates both the standard Brix scale for measuring sugar and also the Oechsle scale. The Oechsle scale is popular with winemakers around the world thanks to its ability to measure grape must.
The Oechsle scale has traditionally been used on a hydrometer when measuring grape must, however by using a refractometer you can be sure to use less sample, create little to no mess, and have no need to use expensive glass hydrometer jars in a wet environment! The Oechsle (DE) scale is based on German data and is ideal for measuring grape must in Germany, UK and other countries where winemakers have adopted this scale data as the standard for these countries. For the Swiss scale, please search code 38-43.
