Compact yeast monitors

The COMPACT YEAST MONITORS from ABER Instruments’ brewing equipment range are designed to be used in real time
with live yeast concentrations up to 70% viable spun solids.

The COMPACT YEAST MONITOR is housed in a robust IP65 stainless steel housing, this can be fitted to housing such as the Tuchenhagen Varivent. The COMPACT ADAPT YEAST MONITOR is used on fermenters and propagators and is typically used with our 25mm diameter probe type. The COMPACT PERFECTPITCH is a self-contained mobile skid for dosing the right amount of LIVE yeast.
