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.

hydrometer
Overall this is a very good hydrometer.  Large enough scale and well marked increments.  Works good for final gravity readings.  Liked it so much I bought a total of three.  That said it has two design weakness issues.  The identical product last year was smaller in diameter and fit well into the standard hydrometer jar.  This model is larger in diameter and you will need to shop elsewhere for a suitable, wider clear glass hydro jar.  Second, the stem is very fragile and breaks easily - I broke two last year.  I am now exceptionally careful handling, pick it straight up, place it straight down.  Never lay it down flat and pick it up by the stem.  Slight bumps using or cleaning will easily fracture off the stem.

Fragile, but accurate
I used to buy cheap sunglasses and I would always loose them.  Then I bought an expensive pair and have had and enjoyed them for years because I took better care of them.  This hydrometer needs a lot of care to avoid breaking, but it is very accurate and easy to read.

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.
