3 Piece Thief - plastic
Sampling wine and beer wort is easy with our 19" three-piece plastic thief.
To remove a sample of wort or wine for testing, immerse the thief into the fermenter, place your thumb over the other end, and drain the sample into a test jar.
Disassembles for easy sanitizing.
The sampling thief works. I modified the handle to make it longer so I can use it on a 6 gallon carboy. This device does not take a very big sample. It takes several attempts to get 150 ml. to take a reading. I don't know if I am doing something wrong?
Just what i needed
It works as described but no matter how careful you are it will spill a few drops while handling.
It does the job, but it takes multiple samplings to get enough for to check the gravity.
Due to the 3 piece construction you loose vacuum so have to work fast and it takes 3-4 attempts to get the needed volume. Nevertheless it does get the job done.
