What is Brix

Brix is the relative density scale used in sugar and winemaking industry, it indicates the percent of cane sugar (sucrose) by weight (grams per 100 milliliter of water) in a solution or juice of unfermented grapes in degrees Brix (°Bx). The most commonly used refractrometer scale for measuring solids dissolved in water, it corresponds directly to the refractive index scale. One °Bx equals one percent and, in winemaking, the alcohol concentration of the finished wine is estimated to be 0.55 times the °Bx of the grape juice. Named after the 19th century Austrian scientist Adolf Brix who invented a hydrometer that reads directly the percentage of sugar at a specified temperature.
