The Thief by Fermtech is by far the easiest tool to use.

That's subjective, a matter of personal experience and opinion. I started with a theif, and put the hydrometer right in it after drawing a sample. But I just had a hard time reading it in there. Usually there was too much foam on the top line.

I seem to get less foam when drawing with my baster.

And to transfer to a sample jar was a pain too. Plus I got more dribble sit seams from my winetheif then my turkey baster. That's why I switched.

It's all part of the brewing process, finding what works for YOU. And usually that comes from trial and error.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
