4.5 / 5.032 Reviewsexcellant productThe extra length is extremely helpful. scales are easy to readJuly 26, 2012EssentialThe scales are easy to read and even comes with a conversion chart to tell you final alcohol content. The ability to tell the temp and gravity in one tool makes it that much easier. Must have!December 12, 2012You need one, yeah?Ok, bottom line up front, you need it. It's not the best, but you can't brew without it. If you just happen to drop it in your thief without a bit of liquid as a cushion or without tilting it to let it slide slowly, you just broke the thing. I've gone through two of these already, because the weld between the thermometer and the density scale is pretty weak. But what are you going to do, GUESS at your gravities and you ABV? I didn't think so. Get it, treat it like your lady (i.e. don't slap her around), and you'll be a happy brewer!February 10, 2013two in oneThis tool really works well. I am a firm believer in multi-tasking tools. What else is there to say?April 8, 2013Easy does itIt's easy to read, it's very convenient having the thermometer, all in all a great hydrometer. However, in the long run I fear I will break it. Be very careful with it, and not just drop it into a testing jar.September 28, 2013The built in thermometer is niceThe built in thermometer saves me a step and the hydrometer it self is a little bigger and easier to see. It needs a different sample jar because it's taller.January 22, 2014Works as advertised.Works easily to tell the specific gravity of your brew. I sanitize mine before using, so I can test right in the fermenter. Comes with chart so you can figure out you final alcohol content.February 23, 2010Great but tenderAs stated in other reviews this device will easily tell you the alcohol by weight which you may convert to volume. This is important as if you are going to distill you will know in advance how much product you may expect. Be careful of the end opposite the large bulb as the glass is very thin.November 21, 2012FragileIt works and does all it's supposed to do. Easy to read. But it can break if you are note very careful. It's not a toy, handle with care.December 26, 2012Great purchase!!I bought this one along with the cheaper model without the thermometer, but prefer to use this one so I can gauge the temperature as well. I know these instruments are fragile but I've done a couple brews and this one is still going. For a couple more bucks I would get this one... and maybe one of the cheap ones just as a backup.June 22, 2013
