I also want to get a Refract.  Question is should I get the Brix only one or the Dual Brix and S.G. one?
Someone mentioned that the S.G. would not be accurate?  Why is that?  What is your experiences with the dual Refract?
Thanks

I have a brix only refractometer and find that for just quick measurements, I simply multiply by 4 and I have my gravity. No, this is not a linear figure, but it's close. When I do my final check, I simply enter the brix value in Promash and it converts it for me.
