Great for pulling samples/gravity readings
Easy to clean/sanitize, inexpensive, and a great tool to have laying around. Gently place your hydrometer inside the wine thief, dip the wine thief in your fermenter, draw it back out, and you can take the gravity reading right through the wine thief. Then drain your sample into a glass and enjoy. This is also very convenient for carboys/better bottles as they have a very narrow opening.

Must have!
This is a must have for anyone who wants to be sanitary about trying their brew before it has finished fermenting. It's helpful and works great for people making MEAD as well. Buy it and be happy!

Nice piece of equipment
The wine thief was very simple to use. I did not have to worry about pouring a sample out into a cylinder to take my hydrometer reading. I know it will be very useful tool for all my brewing and of course my sampling needs (tasting needs).

Must-have for carboy users
When we upgraded to a carboy for fermenting we also purchased a Thief...it's a great measuring tool and essential to a carboy system. Works great, easy to clean, and provides a nice sample for testing. Great product.

Does what it needs to
It works fine for what it's intended to do. Dripped a little for me, but not enough to prevent taking a reading from it, so not a big deal

The easiest and best way to SG/OG sample your batches
After one use, you'll wonder why there was ever any other way to take pre & post fermentation gravity readings. Highly recommended.

The best way to get samples from a carboy
I just dip it in, and get my sample. In case there is head space it still works while a baster wont. This is the only sampling tool I will use.

Must Have Tool
This is a must-have tool for beer and wine making. The thief allows you to take samples without making a mess or risking contamination. Yes, it leaks, a little, but it's not a deal breaker by any means.

Note: doesn’t fit smaller ½ to 1-gallon carboys
Does that mean it won't fit into the opening of a 1 gallon, glass jug? I do 1 gallon brewing in the glass jug and would like to use this.

BEST ANSWER: That is correct, it does not fit into any 1/2 or 1 gallon glass fermentors. The item is too wide, just barely, to fit into the jugs we sell.
