Jacqueline (Kansas) –

I have home brewed for almost six years and have progressed from an extract kit brewer to using all-grain now. Necessary to any brew equipment kit is a good hydrometer to measure and monitor the specific gravity of the wort and beer. I have used a variety of hydrometers throughout the years.
This hydrometer says it is made in France and seems to be a fairly robust glass one. As I haven’t had time to brew yet and test it, I did the next best thing which is to see how calibrated it is. Water at 68F should read 1.000 on this hydrometer. I used cold tap water (so most likely close to the 68F but maybe not exactly). As the picture shows, the hydrometer reading was a little above 1.000, around 1.003. Even with a small temperature correction (included in the package with the sheet of paper) it will not quite read exactly 1.000. But overall I would say that it is calibrated to the exent that is needed when home brewing and will work nicely to give you an idea of the specific gravity of your wort and then your beer.
The package also includes a ‘test jar’ which is just the container it comes in. I used this in my gravity test and it did not leak, which is a good thing. It did seem to want to lean to one side which can also affect the reading as you want the hydrometer to fully float without touching any sides. So it will do in a pinch but a better test jar is recommended. The included paper also gives you the temperature corrections and a chart to convert specific gravity to % alcohol by volume or amount of sugar in solution, which is handy to have but readily available online also.

Overall, I think that this is a good product and will do any home brewer good when they brew. I would and will definitely use it when I am brewing. Saying all of this, I did receive this product at a discount for me to give an honest review. I buy many things off of Amazon and know how important the reviews are, which is why I believe that I have given my honest opinion here. If this has been helpful, please vote!

Essential beer & wine home brewing tool … Optional (but nice to have) for kombucha, May 26, 2016

This review is for the Triple Scale Hydrometer & Plastic Test Jar Combo Set.
I was a little confused by some of the reviews that I read before I ordered the hydrometer & plastic test jar combo set; then I noticed that this listing offers two distinctly different items:
1. A Borosilicate Glass Test Jar
2. A Triple Scale Hydrometer & Plastic Test Jar Combo Set.

I received exactly what I ordered: A Triple Scale Hydrometer and Plastic Test Jar.
The set arrived with typical Amazon Prime speed, and exceptionally well protected. The hydrometer was inside a plastic tube that had foam padding protecting the top and bottom of the hydrometer. That plastic tube had a plastic end cap on each end, and was wrapped with a sheet of packing foam, shipped inside the test jar that was packed in and wrapped with a bubble wrap bag.

The product instruction / description insert says that the hydrometer is calibrated to 20°C / 68°F. I warmed some filtered water to 68°F, almost filled the plastic test jar with the 68°F water, inserted the hydrometer, and then gave the hydrometer a twirl (to remove any air bubbles). The hydrometer reading was exactly what it should have been for 68°F water = 1.000
Just in case whatever you are reading doesn’t happen to be exactly 20°C / 68°F there is a nifty little adjustment chart on the backside of the piece of paper that comes in the tube with the hydrometer.
There is also a table listing Specific Gravity, Potential Alcohol Content (% Vol), and Sugar / Liter on the same side of that little piece of paper.

I recently started brewing kombucha with a new culture, and felt like I was getting a “Buzz” when I drank kombucha made with that specific culture. I’ve started keeping a log with initial hydrometer readings for each new batch, and for each culture. I’m also logging the finished pH, and hydrometer readings when each batch tastes done. The three different batch brews that I’ve measured of the new culture have come in with higher alcohol content readings than the kombucha made with the other 5 cultures I grow. The readings from this hydrometer confirmed that the “Buzz” was real and there was a good reason for it. (No wonder homemade kombucha tastes SO much better than the store bought!) 😀

I am really happy with this Triple Scale Hydrometer & Plastic Test Jar Combo Set, how easy it is to read and use. Since I’ve confirmed that the one kombucha culture does have a higher alcohol content than the others, and brewing kombucha doesn’t need to be as precise as beer and wine making I probably won’t continue to take readings for each new batch. But if I start making wine again or ever need to check the alcohol content of kombucha again I have an accurate hydrometer for testing it.

I received a promotional discount on the purchase price of this item to evaluate it and give my honest unbiased opinion and review for other Amazon shoppers. When shopping for new products online, I rely on, and appreciate truthful and unbiased reviews from previous buyers. I hope my review will help other shoppers make better, and more informed decisions about their purchases.

I feel like a mad scientist with this. I have been making making kefir and kvass, both of which are fermented probiotics. But sometimes I have noticed that they are quite potent! As in alcoholic potent. Now, when doing reading on this most literature tells me that it is just a TRACE of alcohol. Ummm… well, I can get buzzed off of a small glass so I am pretty sure that it is more than a “trace.” But I really wanted to find out how much alcohol really truly is in my concoctions. I had read up on hydrometers, but was not sure what to get. There were some for wine and some for beer. I had really no idea how alcoholic my concoctions are so I did not know which one to get. I “should” only need the beer one, but I was not convinced on that. This is one huge reason I like this hydrometer versus the other ones I was looking at buying. I only need this one tool. Whether I am at 0% alcohol or all the way up to 20% I can use this same contraption. If you need to measure a stronger alcohol content you will need a different device – this one only goes up to 20% ETOH by volume. I tested it on three different concoctions. The one that has been sitting in my fridge for a long time (and probably still slightly fermenting in there) turned out to be 7%!!! THAT explains why a glass would have me buzzed!! Not this “trace” that the internet geniuses tell me that it should be at. Ha! Another one also ran at 7% that was sitting waaaay too long on the counter. And then another one was at 5% – I was getting worried that they were all going to be 7% and I had a dud for a hydrometer!! I also for the s&g of it all put just plain old tap water in to see what it would do. It came out at 0% alcohol!! And also the concoction that I JUST started fermenting (so it should be at nothing or so slight of an alcohol that it would not be able to be measured)ca me out at 0% also. So, the awesome thing about this is I just might actually start some home brewing stuff. Because MY alcohol would not only be at 7%, but it would also have PROBIOTICS in it! So HEALTHY alcohol. Yes!! yes! Yes! I will say that it took me a little while to figure this out – just because there are SO many things you can do with this hydrometer I was a bit confused which number to be reading where. The tube is plastic but the seller has said if you need glass to order their other product. I am fine with plastic. Mine did not leak and I have not had any problems with it. It has gotten me excited to try some second fermentation flavor concoctions!! To store this – the hydrometer goes in his little plastic tube with red end caps and then you can put that whole thing in the testing tube.

I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I know that a lot of people dismiss reviews from people who get items discounted or free, but I am just as honest in a review that I got discounted as one that I did not. I also rely on reviews just like this one to decide if I want to take my time and effort to write a review. To add, many times it is not free, it is discounted which means I am still having to decide if the product is worth investing $$ in. So, if this helped you, even though I *did* receive it at a discount, would you hit the “helpful” button? It would make me feel that my time and effort was worth it to write a decent review to try to help others.
