Product details

By performing simple (dare we say, fun) tests with this kit, you'll be able to tell conclusively when fermentation ends (those airlock bubbles aren't always reliable!) and calculate the alcohol content of your brews. You don't need to test the gravity of wort or beer in order to brew successfully - after all, humanity brewed without these instruments for millennia - but it sure takes out a lot of guesswork.

NEW! The hydrometer in this kit is made from rugged polycarbonate plastic. The Herculometer® hydrometer is virtually unshatterable.will be a main stay brew day tool for years to come.

Includes:

  • Herculometer - Triple Scale Hydrometer
  • Test Jar
  • Beer Thief

One out of three ain't bad

The kit consisted of an unbreakable hydrometer, a test beaker, without pour spout, and a thief, in three parts, difficult to take apart to clean. I kept the hydrometer and threw away the rest.

Good start but...

The wine/beer thief may be good for larger batches but for me starting out with 1 to 1.5 gallon batch's it's not great. I have 1 gal carboys (glass juice bottles) and a couple little big mouth bubblers (spigot-less version). It doesn't fit into the 1gal carboy however does fit in the lbmb but is a hassle to take samples....will probably pick up a different thief or maybe a baster for sampling these small batches. The hydrometer is nice and is there version made out of break resistant plastic....I was really worried about getting a glass one so this has been perfect. Over all probably could have skipped this kit and just gotten the hydrometer.

Great gifts for a great price

Helping a friend start their homebrew journey. The selection, pricing and shipping were excellent. Northern brewer is turning into my preferred stop for homebrew equipment.
