It looks like it has the SG conversions on there already. I would imagine you would not have to convert from brix to sg because it is on the scale there. However, you still would have to convert your readings after fermentation has begun. Morebeer has a spreadsheet I believe. IMHO, if you have to convert anyway, I say save the 30 bucks get the cheaper one and get a few lbs of hops or something.

Is this one twice as much because its a dual scale? Or does it have something else also?
That one is too expensive for what it does. The SP sacle might look nice at first, but to get an FG or mid-term reading you are going to have to use a calculator anyway. The $30 ones are just great for that; no reason to pay extra for the graph.

Been using one for past 4 months or so. Glad to be rid of the hydrometer. Makes readings quick.

I got one from "easylifeproduct". Works great from what I can tell. Brewed an APA with it last week.

I've been looking at these for a while... they don't always do free shipping, but wtf - at that price it would be worth it either way. Gunna have to pull the trigger.
