. Also you can predict the alcohol level after fermentation. In this way you reduce to zero the errors during the harvest and the harvest of the fruit, and also during the production of the wine. It is a scientific system that works 100%.
What is the refraction of light to measure sugar?
The refraction of light is a phenomenon that happens every day under our eyes. You will have noticed that, by dipping a spoon in a glass of water, this seems to be cut. In fact, the water refracts the rays of light deviating them: it is the optical effect of the refraction!
The more we add sugar to the water, the more light rays are diverted. All this is measured with the refractometer.
How does the wine refractometer work?
- Put a drop of grapes or fruit that you want to measure;
- Look in the refractometer turning it towards the light;
- Read the sugar level of the product.
Measure the sugar content using the BRIX grade
BRIX is the percentage of sugar expressed as a percentage. It is named after Adolf Ferdinand Brix, a famous 19th-century German metematic.
Features of the 0-32 Brix optical refractometer
