It's a lot easier to hold your test tube up to eye level to get your reading than to squat down and try to eye it up in the fermenter. You'd also risk contaminating the whole batch if you're not really careful about sanitizing the hydro. Then again, it's probably easier to sanitize a glass hydro than whatever you're using to steal the sample. I've always used a sanitized turkey baster because I use carboys.
