The Still Spirits Alcometer (alcoholmeter) is used to measure the alcohol content of distilled spirits on a Tralles scale of 0 to 100%.
This device is used to measure the strength and temperature of distilled spirits only, and will not work for wine, liqueurs or beer. If you are making spirits then this is the type of hydrometer you will need.
Large, clear numbers make for easy use.
Supplied in a sturdy, rigid plastic case that can be used as a Trial Jar.
Glass instrument – Handle with care and DO NOT BOIL.
Place a sample of the liquid to be tested into the trial jar supplied and lower the alcometer into the liquid so it floats freely.
Gently spin the alcometer to release any air bubbles adhering to the glass, then take the reading of where the liquid touches the glass.
The alcometer is calibrated to 20 degrees C (68 degrees F) and if the temperature of the liquid is lower or higher, the rading has to be adjusted as per the table included with the alcometer.
