BEAKER PLASTIC TEST JAR 10″ VINTAGE SHOP TRIAL JAR FOR USE WITH HYDROMETER TO TEST FERMENTING BEER WINE

$7.95 $4.95

Here’s a handy and inexpensive piece of homebrew equipment you ought to have.  This ‘TEST JAR’ is used to hold a sample pulled from your homebrew so that a hydrometer can be floated in it to measure the alcohol or possibility of alcohol.  It will take just less than 8 oz to fill it to the brim but you will not want to do that – leave room for the displacement of your instrument.  It is a lot easier to see those tiny numbers with one of these trial jars.  The quality is excellent for plastic these are marked ‘Vintage Shop’ and they are imported from British Columbia, Canada.  The Vintage Shop has been manufacturing products for the homebrew industry since 1969 and they make our crystal clear airlocks too.

Description

This jar looks a lot better sitting on your counter than the ones with the green plastic base.  The crystal clear plastic makes it fun and easy to take a reading.  This plastic is fine for beer wort, wine cuvee, and even undistilled whiskey mash since distillers ‘still’ need a triple scale hydrometer and a test jar to figure what percentage alcohol the yeast was able to produce.  They use the proceedure shown below just like for wine and beer.
If measuring homebrew with greater than 25% (50 proof) alcohol you should really get a glass jar since ethanol is corrosive.  But then they put moonshine in plastic milk jugs on TV don’t they?  These cost much less than glass and are harder to break.  For the purist we do also stock the glass trial jars, check our other homebrew items.
