I'm looking to get a refractometer, but I noticed that the majority of them out there at the online shops and my LHBS are for up to 32% Brix, which according to calculations in beersmith is 1.135. This is a pretty high OG, but considering my last brew (a maharaja clone) had an OG reading on a hydrometer of 1.145, i think I may need a refractometer that measures a little higher brix/og. I plan to continue brewing high og beers in the future with some normal gravity ones thrown in randomly. Does anyone know of where I can get a higher reading refractometer or do I even need one (just keep using the hydrometer and get a simple refractometer)?
