More info

This is a dual-purpose hydrometer, which is suitable for testing the gravity of wine, beer and cider as it has a large scale. Not suitable for spirits, please see our spirit alcohol meter, instead.

Most beers will finish at a gravity of 1.012 to 1.008. For wine, readings will vary, according to how sweet or dry the wine is; dry wine: 0.990 to 1.000, medium wine: 0.995 to 1.005, sweet wine: 1.005 to 1.015.

Please note that due to the size of the tub, Royal mail charges this item at the small Parcel rate. This means that the weight has had to be adjusted accordingly on our site, in order to calculate the correct postage.
