I think the Magic is free with the chi.Mardoo said:How much extra is the Magic? That's one of the most unintentionally funny ads I've seen. Looks interesting. What's the upper measurement limit?
Chinese soup noodle refractometer... They must be takin the piss lolTex N Oz said:
It says 53% brix, so if you look at the ebay link you posted... that goes to 1.180 SG or 40% brix... so quite a bit higher (Aren't i usefull! )Mardoo said:How much extra is the Magic? That's one of the most unintentionally funny ads I've seen. Looks interesting. What's the upper measurement limit?

Masterchef China right thereTex N Oz said:YOU NO ADD WHOLE PACKET!! YOU **** UP SOUP!!!! as he whips out the "correct, yet stylish" soup refractometer and adds just the right amount of salty flavour packet to his 2 minute noodles....
old post but after my 5th hydrometre in 20 brews have brought one anyone done worse than me lolIt is worth the effort considering all the hydrometers I've broken. When I broke the last one I finally bought a refractometer and have been kicking myself ever since for not buying it sooner. I don't have a hydrometer anymore and I don't want one either. I'm happy with my refractometer, and it's a simple matter of plugging the OG and current (finished) brix reading into this online worksheet to come up with the FG. Easy.
I think it's more important to get an accurate refractometer than worry about having a SG chart.
Had a cheap one and wasn't too impressed with the optics or the clarity of the chart/line.
Here's my Atago N-1E and I love it.
Real glass prism and certified calibration. Crystal clear optics.

Actually I think the glass prism is a better selling point than the LED.If you want crystal clear optics then you might consider the LED ones like this:
... These also have a glass prism.
