The Milwaukee MA871 Digital Brix Refractometer measures the refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions. The refractive index of the sample is converted to % Brix concentration units.


The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (Internationally recognised body for Sugar Analysis).


Thousands of food and beverage professionals and hobbyists, from chefs and food quality professionals to brewers and winemakers, have moved to digital BRIX measurement from less accurate and less precise optical refractometers.
