Stevenson Hydrometer With Trial Jar Case
Stevenson Hydrometer With Trial Jar Case

A very useful piece of equipment for the home brewer - supplied in a FREE trial jar.

Use a hydrometer such as this one to measure the specific gravity of your wine or beer in order to achieve the desired alcohol content and to check when the fermenting process has finished.

Hydrometers are very useful when moving beer or wine from a primary fermenter to a secondary vessel. When a constant reading is achieved it’s possible to accurately tell that the first stage of fermentation has finished.

Supplied with useful instructions, diagram and plastic tube. The hydrometer is made of glass so is packaged carefully to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. Made in the UK.

The scale ranges from 0.970 to 1.150

These hydrometers can only be used with beers, lagers, and ciders - they will not work with spirits or other liquids

Why use a Hydrometer?
In Home Wine and Beermaking, you can control the sweetness and alcohol content of your wine and beer by measuring the ‘specific gravity’ of the liquid with a hydrometer. It will help prevent bottling or transferring to keg too early.

Looking after your hydrometer; Always follow the manufacturers instructions, when cleaning use warm, but not boiling water

Please note: The style of Hydrometer may vary slightly from the image shown

Electrim Heating Tray 25Ltr (Model TE25)

Heater for Home Beer and Wine Making - Suitable for Standard 25 Litre Fermenting Vessels

Keeping your home brew at the correct temperature is essential to ensure that it not only starts fermenting but also to ensure it ferments completely and all the sugars are converted. This will leave you with a clear, correctly carbonated brew with the correct alcohol content. 

Heating devices are used throughout the primary fermentation stage and also to start secondary fermentation. Using a heating device for your homebrew will also ensure that the process of fermentation is completed quickly, enabling you to enjoy your beer and wine as soon as possible!

Achieving correct, constant temperatures is easy with our range of economical heating devices.

25L Fermenting Vessel Heater Tray
Fermenting tray designed specifically for 25 litre containers. Constructed to withstand the weight of larger vessels and with the correct power output. Also suitable for demijohns and wine making. Thermostatically controlled to maintain a liquid temperature approximately 9 deg C above ambient room temperature, giving a fermenting temperature of 22-29 deg C in most domestic environments. If the temperature is in excess of 20 degrees C (during the day for example) the heater should be switched off. Regular checks should always be made to ensure that the correct temperature is being maintained. Detachable power lead for ease of cleaning and storage. 230 volts 25 watts.

Please note: This heat pad is thermostatically controlled at a preset temperature and isn't manually adjustable.

The temperature must be regularly checked to ensure the correct fermenting temperature is being maintained. For accurate temperature control, use in conjunction with the Inkbird ITC-308 Plug N Play Digital Temperature Controller.

Whilst this heater tray is ideal for use with Home Brew Online fermenting vessels, it is not suitable for use with a Coopers DIY branded starter kit as the fermenter does not have a flat base.
