  • Milwaukee MW600 Pro Dissolved Oxygen meter

    Curious if anyone has used this and in what setting. In the past I have been lucky enough for one of the local regional breweries to come by and lend their very expensive DO meter for a couple hours. However I am looking to tackle these lab tasks on my own and unfortunately my budget is small. Is the MW600 Pro worth it?

    I recognize this unit does not hook up to a sample port so I am theorizing that if I pull a sample into a beaker it's going to pick up a ton of oxygen and therefore my readings will be inaccurate for what is inside the FV or brite. Or am I incorrect and this will give me a good ballpark DO reading despite the sample being pulled from the sample port?

    That meter only measures PPM. The only time it is applicable in the brewery is measuring your wort knockout oxygenation. Measuring FV/BBT samples requires a meter that can read in PPB.
