Don't know anything about its accuracy and reliability, but the price point is very reasonable.
Dang, really?! If I'd known they would sell at that price I would have started making these a couple years ago.
Are you around next weekend, by the way? I'll be in town for a wedding.
At $120 it's cheaper than the Beer Bug. I've had a Brew Bug for a few months. I do like it for controlling temp ramping, etc, but have found that it's more valuable as a relative "progress meter" and less valuable for actual gravity readings.
The big issue for me is that it seems to be calibrated at a specific temperature, but then as I change my fermentation temp it throws off the gravity reading. Its internal thermometer and temp probe are supposed to help correct for this, so I need to study a little more, check for firmware updates, etc. in the meantime, it tells me what I need to know.
I'll be interested in hearing about your experiences with the Brewometer.
