An all brass manual refractometer that is used to measure the moisture content in honey. Easy to use and easy to calibrate, it features a rubber eyepiece for comfort and a textured grip for easy focusing. Kit includes refractometer, eye dropper, lint-free cleaning cloth, tool for adjusting the calibration, manual, and hard case. Used only for liquids and must be used in a well lit location. Honey needs to be 18% or less. Some say if the honey is capped it is good but that’s not true. Many have extracted and bottled, only later to find out it fermented. This simple device would have saved all of their hard work.
*Pro Tip – Oilve oil works great for a calibration fluid but make sure it is the same temp as the honey you are testing, or the calibration will be off.
