    I open the top of mine to take a sample as well. There is a sample port kit you can buy for it

    I can get...

    Good point. I will do some homework on measuring yeast health.All 3 batches reached their
    intended FG. Unfortunately I don't have a temperature controlled environment to put them in for
    fermentation. ...

    Thanks! Yes, it does seem to go off more when the temperature changes. I just continue to check
    it as I have been doing.It never hurts to check it, and it's probably a good practise to get
    into. I thi...
