Well, a hydrometer is swell for taking hydrometer readings.

A refractometer works well too.

What I mean is what do you use to get the beer out of the fermenter to put into the hydrometer?

Ok, that's what I use. Just checking to see if there was anything else.

Preferably a wine thief, but a turkey baster will work. Just make sure it is sanitized before taking samples.

i use my auto siphon with an adjustable crimp on the tubing to stop the flow. i just fill up a sample during the transfer to the primary. less stuff to sanitize/clean... win in my book.
