We spent 22 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Aquarium owners, brewers and beekeepers, take your pick. These refractometers will help you measure the salinity and specific gravity of tank water, the specific gravity and sugar content of a brew before fermentation, or the amount of water in honey. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best refractometer on Amazon.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
