How do you use this?
I got this in my wine making kit and yet to use it? Can Midwest make a short vid of how to use this item? How to you read it? The writing on the plastic case is way to small and don't have a "wine their" its in the kit how do you use it "AS is"?_x000D_Its very nice and well made, although glass so fragile but how to use? Need a "how to" for this one with the wine kit. Thanks!_x000D__x000D_Editors Note: I think this videos should be able to help with some of the confusion:

recomended for all
upon receiving the triple scale hydrometer i, unpacked it and checked it carefully. no cracks breaks or loose scales. comes with easy t oread and to follow directions with a couple examples of how to figure out your final alcohol percentage. This hydrometer only good for wines meads and ciders. not useable on high gravity liquids. comes in a pretty nice sturdy plastic case, though case wont keep it from breaking if dropped. you can wrap it in a slim layer of small chamber bubble wrap, for an added protection. checked against fellow wine makers hydrometer scales of various brands. copied accuracy across several brands. as long as it was in the must was in the temperature range specified on the hydrometer. 60 Degrees f. Be sure to take temperature at specified level on any hydrometer. otherwise you will get false readings.

Great Hydrometer for the price
Easy to read and come with easy to understand directions in case you have never used a hydrometer or simply don't know how. I actually banged mine a bit on brew day by accident and thought for a second it would of broke but actually didn't so i wouldn't say they are as fragile as everyone says they are. I would recommend getting a test tube to use this with considering the container it comes with is not suitable to test with.

Good price, does what I expected it to
This item does everything I expected it to and for a good price. I also like the case that the hydrometer comes in because it closes snug, preventing the hydrometer from bouncing around in the box during storage.

Absolute Necessity
You're doing yourself and whatever you're brewing a disservice by not owning one. A hydrometer is one of those essential things that is often overlooked. Don't forget to add it to your cart today if you don't already own one!

Great Value
This hydrometer is priced right and is great to see. Three scales for those of you with multiple types of fermenting to do or want to geek out a bit on your brew knowledge. I was extremely happy with it and an added bonus is the case that comes with it. Protects your hydrometer right! Good value purchase and so far is spot on with measurements.

What is the specific gravity range of this hydrometer, and will it fit well enough inside the Fermtech Wine Thief where it won't stick to the walls while trying to take a reading ?
J I on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This has a range of .980 to 1.160; and yes, it works very well in a Fermtech Wine Thief, it's great for taking readings in there. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
