You'll need a wine thief, or an auto-siphon like this: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/b...iphon-1-2.html

Wine thief was included in kit. With this I can extract fluid to check gravity?

Of course ignore his comments about how to tell fermentation is completed, we all know that has nothing to do with the bubbles. And I would suggest using the gravity scale and not the ABV scale. but you get the point.
