Especially since I've started doing 2-gal batches, taking a full sample is a little wasteful and I have to wait for it to cool down. I've missed my numbers a few times since I couldn't take accurate samples straight from the boil kettle. SO... I want a fancy refractometer. OooOOoooOoo. :geek: Any rec's on your favorite, most affordable instrument? Online/in my LHBS? Your experience is valuable. To me at least.
