Description  more details

If you have ever squinted to read the finishing gravity on your standard hydrometer, or wondered if it really had dropped 1/2° since yesterday, our Brewer's Edge Bottling Hydrometer is for you. Features a very slender stem attached to a large, bulbous float for the ultimate in sensitivity.

Hand calibrated, our Bottling Hydrometer is an ideal second hydrometer for those who wish to precisely monitor finishing gravity. Measures from 1.000 to 1.040 specific gravity in 1° calibrations that are twice as large as on our full range hydrometers. 12" long. Imported.

Does not appear to be particularly accurate.
It's beautiful and well made.  If I test a sample with three different hydrometers two of them read within .002 of one another.  The bottling hydrometer always reads .005 lower than either of them.

Great hydrometer, but way too delicate!
The accuracy and ease of reading is great - love that about this hydrometer. However, the top stem is so thin and so fragile that it is worrisome to handle. Have to be extremely cautious when using, cleaning, and storing. Would rate higher if it was made of heavier glass.

Every brewery needs one
Our brew club is a bunch of retired guys with failing eyes.  We could never agree on the final gravity reading from a standard hydrometer.  Well, this one solved our problem  Easy to read and we all agree on our FG reading now.  Stem is very delicate so be careful when using this.

Easy to read, clearly very fragile
Used it for the first time today.  Was impressed how easy to read, and how nicely it is calibrated ( .5°, not 1° as described).

Clearly very fragile.  I handled with extreme care without incident.  I expect that I will break it eventually, but will buy another when I do...   it's that good!  

 I suggest taping the bottom cap to the storage cylinder, and always keep it stored when not using.  Don't leave in sanitizer bucket, as other items could contact it and break it.

Great Product
Confused about the low ratings for this product. 
The top portion is made of thin glass, so it's probably not a good idea to be doing a majority of the handling from the top, thin area. The thin neck of this product creates a very small meniscus bulge, making it very easy to take the reading accurately.
Also, yes, this product also "forced" me into a larger test jar. I had to go to 10" jar to a 14" jar. The difference in sample size went from 2/3 of a cup to 1 cup of finished beer... not a big deal.
If you like new brewing tool and you aren't careless with them, this is a really cool/accurate product
