carbonation tester (not Zahm)
I know and have used the Zahm Nagel carb tester at my previous employers brewery. I am now opening up a small brew pub operation and am curious to know if anyone has used any of the alternative (less expensive) carb testing tools. I saw this one on Foxx Equipment for $276. Anyone have any experience or advice?
Beer Carbonation Tester
COMPLETE WITH ALL HOSES, FITTINGS
& CARRYING CASE
Operates the same as more expensive
models and is easy to use.
• High impact plastic canister
• Metal cap with quick disconnect plated fittings
• Gauge protector boot
• 4.5 oz. capacity canister
That looks very similar, if not identical, to the one we have. It's easy to use but not terribly precise. If you only need to know carb levels within, say, ±0.1 vol, it'll get the job done.
thanks, we do not need exact precision at this point.
