Hey guys, I just got a refractometer in the mail with in the last couple of days. It's the kind that gives brix and specific gravity. I was bottling today and I decided to give it a try. It gave me a specific gravity of 1.026, which I thought was odd. I then used my hydrometer to get a "second opinion" and it gave me a specific gravity of 1.011. Does any one have any idea why it would be so off? P.s. I did use it on water and it gave me a specific gravity of 1.000.
