Hydrometer and test jar

Can someone point me in the right direction for a good quality hydrometer and glass test jar. The original one that I have seemed to be of lower quality and the bottom of the plastic test jar fell right out…Thanks All.

Glass hydrometer + glass test jar sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. I’d rather keep buting plastic cylinders at the LHBS…

Bah! Don’t listen to clumsy there. (jk 5019 :wink: )

Austin homebrew (sorry NB, no glass test cylinder) has this:

Kinda nice. The glass test cylinder is available in the drop-down.

Personally, I use a refractometer for OG and only use the hydrometer for FG. If that’s you too, then the lower scale precision hydrometer:

might be for you. It reads .980-1.020

Again, our host offers the same precision hydrometers, just no glass test cylinder.

I’m with you, glass=class. :smiley:

I have the hydrometer and plastic test jar from Northern Brewer and they’ve been working out just fine.

I don’t judge :wink:
