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.
