Default Help Getting Hydrometer Sample

Is there a simple way to get a sample from a glass carboy that is in a mini fridge.

Currently, I have to move the carboy, take my sample and then put the carboy back in the mini fridge.

It would be nice if there was some way to use flexible tubing to easily get a sample.

Searched for about an hour and my googlefu is failing me so hopefully someone here can help me.

Thanks!

How about some plastic tubing that fits onto the end of a turkey baster?

Make sure it's sanitized and dry so as to avoid infection and dilution of the sample.

Yeah, either tubing on the end of a turkey baster, or if you don't have that just insert tubing into the beer and plug the end with your thumb.

The turkey baster idea got me to think about a bulb siphon. Found one at the pet store and it worked great.

Thanks for the replies
