DID WE MENTION THAT IT IS MADE IN THE USA? IT IS!
The BRAND NEW eMaple Digital Maple Syrup Refractometer can be used at the tree tap or tank to measure maple sap, for pre-process monitoring of reverse osmosis, in the sugar shack to determine when to draw maple syrup from the boiler, or during maple syrup bottling and testing.
The principle unit of measure the maple syrup producer is interested in is degrees Brix. Brix is a measure of the percentage of sucrose, by weight, dissolved in a sugar/water solution. In the case of maple sap and maple syrup, 98% or more of the dissolved solids are made up of sugar, so the Brix scale is very applicable to maple syrup measurement.
Hydrometers have long been used in maple syrup testing; however, a refractometer is more accurate than a hydrometer, requires a smaller sample size, eliminates sources of error, is easily cleaned, and reduces the time that it takes to measure maple sap and maple syrup.
The eMaple refractometer features two scales, both with a range from 0 to 85 Brix. The first scale is a conventional Brix scale is intended for accurately measuring maple sap or maple syrup with a fluid temperature at or under 30 °C (86 °F).
The second scale is a high-temperature scale for testing syrup above 30 °C (86 °F). The MISCO eMaple Refractometer approaches hot maple syrup measurement in two ways. First, the eMaple has special electronic circuitry to prevent the display of readings before the temperature has stabilized. Second, because of the difficulty in reporting stable readings of hot maple syrup, there is a second scale based on hot syrup. - each unit comes with a 1 Year Warranty (which is better than the other digital Brix Refractometers)!

MAPLE SYRUP AND REFRACTOMETER FACTS:
* Maple Syrup BELOW 60.0% Brix can spoil and/or ferment - at this stage just dump it as it is contaminated.
* Maple Syrup ABOVE 68.9% Brix will crystalize and then your syrup is no longer (technically) Maple Syrup.
* The "Maple Syrup Brix Range" is from 66.0% to 68.9% Brix
International shipping is via either US Postal's Global Priority (Air) Mail, which is $15.00 (FREE TO CANADA) and takes 3-8 business days.
