That's the one I got too. No problems with it at all.

How many times do you have to use that? 6 ml at a time I think my test cylinder holds 250 ml...Am I missing something?

Bed Bath and Beyond has a Turkey baster and brush set for $4. The baster is skinny and is not that wide by the time it hits the squeezer, perfect for sticking into a carboy. This is what I am going to use.

I bought the glass wine thief from more beer. The one that is hand blow by glass artists in Berkely. It's nice and all but just beware that this theif only holds 50ml, which means you have to fill it a couple of times in order to collect enough of a sample to float the hydrometer.

Just thought I would point that out, might have bought a bigger gauge theif had I known.
