Beer In Ads #1259: Taste The Moment

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 21:54
Tuesday’s ad is for Erlanger, from 1980. Erlanger was part of the Joseph Schlitz stable of brands when this ad ran, but was acquired by Stroh’s two years later. Stroh’s promptly killed the brand shortly thereafter. It’s certainly an interesting looking bottle and glass....

March High Flow Pump - $139.95 Shipped

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 20:00
This is March's high flow model.  If you're wondering... this has the same footprint as the regular flow versions.  Along those lines, it fit's on the TopTier March Pump Mounting Bracket.

This is the pump I use.  I use it for vorlaufing/recirculating, transferring from my mash tun to brew kettle, chilling with a recirculating wort chiller and transferring to my fermenter.  It works great!

Reader Tip: Dual Scale Refractometer - Corrected Scale - $19.38 Shipped

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 07:36
Thanks to HBF Reader Stephen for this tip!


Gravity to Brix AccuracyTypical refractometers use a linear 4 x gravity to Brix conversion.  That's fine and dandy up until around 1.049.  At that point this linear scale starts to become inaccurate.  Brix 11 does equal 1.044, but Brix 12 does not equal 1.048.  It is 1.049.  It's only 1 point off here, but up at Brix 24, it's up to 5 points off.  Brix 24 equals 1.101 not 1.096.
All this to say that this model of refractometer uses a more accurate, non-linear gravity to Brix scale.
From the manufacturer: "This is the only inexpensive Wort SG to be corrected. The only other corrected refrafractometers in existence are the BREWfractometer and the BREWfractometer Extreme."




Refractometers can be used to measure gravity throughout the brewing process.  You can also estimate the alcohol content of your beer if you forget to take an OG with the use of a refractometer and a hydrometer.  Check out Northern Brewer's Refractometer Calculators.
