How do you test FG Gravity readings from the Carboy?
I want to test the FG of my Saison -- how do you boys usually test it? Just siphon out a tiny bit? I don't want to contaminate my batch!
1. BCS - Wet Hopped West Coast Blaster
2. CYBI - Gordon's IPA Clone
3. BCS - Scottish -80
4. BCS - Specialty Saison (Gold Medal at BMO)
1. BCS - Janet's Brown Ale (Fermenting)
Besides a turkey baster, which i think is the best. Stick it in, squeeze it, release and it sucks it in the tube. I dont have one so I have just poured a little bit into a cup. Not sure if that is the best way but its the only way I have.
Don't pour! It'll aerate the beer, as well as stir up the sediment. Either use a wine thief, which is designed for that purpose, a siphon, or a turkey baster! As long as the tool is sanitized, those all work fine.
