Designed for home brewing, the Tilt hydrometer lets you instantly read your brew's specific gravity and temperature on your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet or Tilt Pi. Most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices will work with the Tilt. You can then optionally save the data automatically to the cloud using Tilt's free Google Sheets template or other 3rd party cloud platforms. See the App section for more detail.

Tilt's goal is to help home brewers brew better beer. The Tilt hydrometer allows you to check the specific gravity and temperature of your beer while it's fermenting, without ever having to open your fermenter or pour out any of your precious brew. This makes brewing more consistent and easy to track.

Here are some of the new features of the Tilt:

  • Range: Better reception and range. With the increased transmission power your Tilt will send data through larger, thicker-walled fermenters.
  • Precision: Upgraded sensors. With an improved temperature sensor and accelerometer your Tilt will operate with more precision.
  • Efficiency: We've reduced power consumption so more brews, less battery.
  • New Look: Newly designed custom circuit board and harness.

If using multiple Tilt hydrometers for different batches of fermenting beer you must use a different color for each batch. The app will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to go with a pre-installed battery that lasts 12-24 months depending on usage. Just download the free app, sanitize your Tilt, drop in your fermenter, and start taking readings with your phone, tablet, or Tilt Pi.

The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt's range of 0.990 to 1.120. The thermometer is accurate +/- 1 degree F (+/- 0.5 degree C).

Cloud Logging Apps

The options below will work with your Tilt app to log Tilt hydrometer readings online to the cloud. We recommend trying option 1 since it is the easiest to setup. Option 2 lets you copy our cloud logging solution and run on your own Google account (or a new one you create). We also have five different options for 3rd party cloud logging solutions and recommend trying these as well.

Option #1: Use Baron Brew's Google Sheets cloud logging solution

Leave the the "cloud logging URL" blank in the iOS/Android app settings, a default URL managed by Baron Brew will be used. Enter your email address as a comment to start a new brew log and a link to your Google Sheet will be emailed to you. (watch video below on how to set up)

Option #2: Create your own cloud service.

Copy our Google Sheets cloud logging solution and run on your own Google/Gmail account.

Note: You must use a laptop or desktop for setting up Option #2. A smartphone will only work once you have your own cloud URL set up.

Review Comments: I use 3 of them in my Ss brewtech fermentation's. I have a raspberry-pi connected to a tv on the wall above. If you use the tilt in stainless vessels you will need to be close to it for the bluetooth to work. Mine have been working very well.
