Fermtech Wine Thief
This is a thief you'll actually want in your home! Sampling beer or wine is easy with the 19" Fermtech Wine Thief. Allows you to draw samples and take a hydrometer reading at the same time. Faster than using a regular test jar, it lets you return the wort to the carboy with less risk of infection, cutting down on losing any of your finished product.
- Efficiently draws wine and beer samples
- Also takes hydrometer reading simultaneously
- Sanitize the unit before use, then take a sample, reading and then return the sample back to the fermenter
Nice and handy to have but it does leak more than I would like. Even a fast transfer from carboy to glass leaves a wine trail...
I had been looking for one for a while and it is fabulous.
This works great! I've used it frequently to take readings. It makes it easy because you don't have to transfer the wine to fit the hydrometer.
Makes it so easy to grab a quick taste, to check on clearing or SG. Love it!
Very useful tool (wine thief) for a lot of use - from getting a sample to test alcohol content to get a small glass to drink before the wine is bottled! sturdy enough for the job, I love it!
