Yep, a thief is great for that, though I've also used the auto-siphon. You just need a sample tube large enough to accept the hydrometer and allow it to spin a bit (not too snug, in other words).

Yah, maybe I'll keep out the flameout Bravo and sub in Cascade. I just never know what to expect from Cascase, it always seems more piney than citrusy to me.
