Brewery Essentials Herculometer Advanced Gravity Testing Kit
When you need to know...you need to know! And when it comes to homebrewing and winemaking, tracking your progress down to the very smallest detail can mean the difference between a good batch and a great one.
The Brewery Essentials Herculometer® Advanced Gravity Test kit has it all... Power. Precision. Perfection. Each virtually indestructible hydrometer is forged from rugged polycarbonate plastic, so you won't have to worry about your hydrometers breaking right when you need to take a reading. Plus, we've divided the scale into thirds and increased the range on each hydrometer, so you can get the most precise readings possible. It's easier than ever to gauge the exact specific gravity of your beer, wine, cider, or mead, from a high gravity of 1.130 all the way down to a finishing 0.980.
Power. Precision. Perfection...all rolled up in The Brewery Essentials Herculometer Advanced Gravity Test Kit.

I got these because I kept breaking my glass sets. These have not broken yet, so have accomplished that aspect. The reason these are not getting a 5 star is due to the lack of stated accuracy of +/- 0.001. I bought the set with all three hydrometers and all three are off by -0.015 gravity points. I calibrated each hydrometer with at least 5 different sugar solutions of varying gravity’s with in the range of each hydrometer. At least one at the top and bottom of the range and a couple in the middle to ensure the scale was not stretch or compressed at any point. Each hydrometer was off by the exact same -0.015 gravity points in all the reference solutions. Not a big deal as I just compensate by adding 0.015 gravity points to all my readings, but obviously they have some quality control issues or need to update their accuracy on the website. If you get these hydrometers then make sure to calibrate them or recognize that you probably will not be getting an exact reading, which may throw off your efficiency numbers.
This is a great hydrometer kit at a great price
To get precise numbers, this is it.
They are great for more precise measurements. But, they are almost to big to work in a wine thief.
As stated by previous buyers the hydrometers are off by up to two points!
Unacceptable that Northern Brewer still sells this product when they are aware of the problem.
