    I never return the sample from my wine thief. Fear of contamination, its a risk that I find can
    be avoided. The amount of beer that goes into the hydrometer jar is not very much and I like to
    drink th...

    I use Starsan for anything non glass as glass becomes extremely slippery. I use Iodophor for

    Upgraded yesterday. I'm happy with the improvement in speed. One of my thumb drives wasn't
    recognized and it took about 30 min for windows to do what it wanted to do and finally popped

    the methods above wouldn't help.While I haven't done this personally, APPARENTLY, one of the
