I use a thief but I pretty much stopped taking reading. Lets all be honest here, we are not taking reading to find out FG, we are curious as to how the beer tastes.

Three weeks primary, one week dry hop, done. Any sample taken along the way is for tasting. I'll grab one reading when its going into the keg to get carbed and consumed.

And it never goes back into the carboy.
