Northern Brewer Economy Test Jar
Plastic test jar for taking hydrometer measurements. Perfect for use with any of our hydrometers.
An indispensable item in any beer brewer or wine maker tool kit. This sturdy plastic test jar measures 12 1/4" tall making it ideal for taking hydrometer measurements of your wort or wine. Not recommended for use with distilled spirits. See our Glass Hydrometer Test Jar for that application.
Very well built and sturdy build. Not just a cheep plastic, this is made from a ~1/8 inch walled plastic pipe. Very level to get an accurate reading.
The cylinder is was not sealed at the bottom. If you leave liquid sitting for more than a minute it will start leaking from the bottom. I had to put a dab of silicon around the base to hold liquid. The cylinder also does not sit straight in the base so you have to hold or prop the cylinder to keep the hydrometer centered.
The jar is tilted from the base. I need to prop it up about 1/8 inch on one side in order for my hydrometer to not hit the side of the tube. Would not recommend
The plastic is very clear, but it slowly leaks at the base. It does hold liquid long enough for a measurement.
Plastic test jar...it is what it is, nothing more, nothing less
