Very easy to read
First one arrived broken (it was shipped in the same box as a large glass carboy), but was replaced at no cost to me and was sent a nice pint glass for the trouble with the second one which arrived in one piece.Its very easy to read, but it is clearly very fragile. Be careful when using it and you'll be happy.

Great to pair with a refractometer for better precision
When measuring FG, my triple-scale hydrometer just wasn't cutting it. The scale was too finely graduated and too easily obscured by bubbles for me to be confident that I was correctly recording my measurement. This hydrometer solved that problem neatly, with markings that are spaced widely enough they aren't obscured even by Star-San foam, and this makes a nice complement to a refractometer to cover all gravity measurements.

This worked as expected. Well made and functional.

Finishing hydrometer
Easier to get precise readings, compared to the standard triple scale hydrometer... That's why I bought it.

This is the answer to a question I didn't ask...
I have been brewing for 35 years, and I just got back into it. A lot of my gear was old, so I bought some new stuff. I bought a new hydrometer, when I replaced my old - yellowed test cylinder. I was making a yeast starter, and I set my flask on the neck of my new hydrometer. OOPS! I dug around in the garage - found my old three scale hydro, and got the brewday completed. I already knew the OG and the starter gravity, so I bought the precision one that was in the final gravity range as a test. OMG, I can't believe the difference. There is no screwing around with flashlights, and wondering if the meniscus is right. The graduations are clear as a bell. As you get older, certain things are appreciated - stuff that is easy to see is one. I already have the test tube holder to hold my slants -- I'm going to bye all of the lab grade hydrometers. This is a MUST-HAVE...

Problem in shipping, NO PROBLEM!
There was a problem in sipping, the Folks at Northern made it right, ASAP. I love this place!!!

AMAZING
So much easier than reading the standard hydrometer. This is probably one of the most recommended products I could tell you to buy, EVER.

Is this hydrometer calibrated for 60F? I just received mine and am measuring distilled water at 68F and getting a .9985 reading.
Matthew M on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used it with 5-6 batches now and also with water and other hydrometers. It is calibrated at 60F, I am a Celsius kind of person. Beersmith helps me sort this out, and it is much better to read than any previusly tryed/tested.
What kind of storage / shipping container does this come in, since it is very fragile? Does it come in a plastic tube which can potentially be used for both storage and measuring, as some hydrometers do? Also, what is the widest diameter of hydrometer (I have read that some instruments like this are too wide for some test cylinders)?
A N on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It comes in a plastic box that slides apart in 2 pcs. I store the hydrometer in it but you could not use it for testing. It doesn't have any padding on the sides though so you still need to be careful even when it is in the box. The size is a little larger than a standard range one - maybe 1" diameter? It still fits my plastic test cylinder easily and also fits down a standard airlock stopper hole.
