Great little kit Review by Justin
Rating
This is a great kit. I actually like this theif for getting a sample over the other one I have with the one way float. This one is easier to clean since you can just flush it through. Hydrometer is easy to read and the sample stand doesn't take a huge sample to float the hydrometer adequately. (Posted on 1/15/14)

Good stuff, Holder seems unnecessary Review by Ryan
Rating
The thief and hydrometer are perfect. Works as it should, simple to use and easy to assemble and store in a smaller form factor than the long, fully assembled thief. I guess I found the hydrometer holder a little unnecessary as i'm not sure what other tools I would put in the other holsters. Maybe I'm looking a gift horse in the mouth.
cheers! (Posted on 1/12/14)

Good product Review by Bill

It was recommended by a friend that I buy kit before my first brew. It was useful in that it verified that I had done things right. I'm not concerned about the amount of wort needed to use because I drink most of it anyway, confirming that I did things right. (Posted on 12/19/13)

Easy to use, and lightweight kit for calculating the alcohol content of your brew. inexpensive was to keep an eye on your gravity. Just be sure to sanitize thief before use! (Posted on 11/17/13)
Great Product Great Help Review by Robert
Rating
This product is easy to use and works great. I do agree the rack may not be needed at my stage. The best part of this was the time that the brewmaster took on the phone to answer my questions and bring me to the conclusion that this would be the product that I need. (Posted on 11/11/13)

simple and easy Review by Blackbear
Rating
Simple products, easy to use which is just what I need. The rack could be more substantial but if the shipping tube the hydrometer came in had a better base it would make a better no-break storage container. (Posted on 11/4/13)

Good Value Review by Alicia
Rating
This was a cheap add on to our initial equipment purchase for first time brewers. Everything worked well. We've already managed to lose the top of the thief somehow, since it breaks into 3 pieces for cleaning. However, that was our fault. Would definitely recommend this product. (Posted on 10/31/13)
Good kit for the price Review by Ryan
Rating
The kit is nice and has pretty much everything I need. The thief works well, and is long enough for my primary fermenter. The rack included really isn't needed however, as the tube for the hydrometer has a base on it. I will say it seems to take a fair amount of wort to get the hydrometer to float properly. As a result, I am debating getting a refractometer to reduce the amount of wort lost through testing. (Posted on 10/30/13)

Helpful to have Review by Diane
Rating
This was recommended to me by a friend who knew it was my first time brewing, and now I understand why; I definitely would have been second-guessing over when it was done with the primary fermentation. My only suggestions: the chart on the back of the instructions was a little confusing because the numbers on the actual hydrometer didn't seem to match. But the "BEER START" and "BEER FINISH" notes on the hydrometer make this idiotproof - i.e., even I can understand it. The rack though? Unnecessary. (Posted on 10/29/13)

Makes sense to have Review by Benjamin

My first batch I completely forgot to use this kit I had purchased to test the OG so I have no way of really
Knowing the ABV. It certainly helps in telling when fermentation has concluded. Like the description says, you don't need to do these tests but it certainly takes the guesswork out. (Posted on 10/18/13)

Worth it Review by Waterlew
Rating
The hydrometer and test cylinder are useful tools to have for the price. It gives me verificaiton that the fermination is on the right track or validates my decision to move to a second-stage fermintation or bottling. Probably only a necessary tools for advanced brewers or if you're having yeast attentuation problems. But it's only $14, might as well get it. (Posted on 9/6/13)
