Where at?

It looks like a decent company, good seller rating. They say they stand behind the product. I thought I would let folks know...

Thanks z987k!

yeah the same guy I posted has them for 21 and 24, but the $24 one has 50 pipettes with it, so I got that one.

These things are a godsend to AG brewers.

with pipettes: http://cgi.ebay.com/Brix-Refractomet...d=p4634.c0.m14

just the refractometer: http://cgi.ebay.com/Brix-Refractomet...d=p4634.c0.m14


I think he has one good to 40 brix as well for any hardcore mazers out there.

you know I just found this to: 40qt aluminum stock pot for $35 + shipping.
If you're like me and much prefer aluminum over stainless this is a great deal for someone looking to go AG.

I just ordered one as well... I'm fairly familiar with ISO 9001, however it doesn't mean THAT much and a lot of companies just include that. Anyhow, I'll let you guys know how it works out. For 35 shipped, you can't beat it.

Well, I'm in for one as well! Can't beat the price or the warranty (if they stand up to it).

60 seems tight... maybe 80.
