Alright, so I have realized that my way of filling a 2 liter pitcher every time I want to take a S.G. reading is annoying, what is the best way to measure it? Im guessing a graduated cylender, but I dont want all those markings on the side to confuse me. Any tips?
Thanks

You can buy clear, plain cyclinders on line pretty cheaply.

I'm pretty sure I've seen clear ones for sale the brew shop by me, too.
