More info

This graduated trial jar holds 100ml of liquid and enables to you draw off enough beer, wine or cider to test the gravity with a hydrometer. Once a gravity reading has been taken, the contents of the trial jar should be either discarded or sampled, so you know how well fermentation is proceeding and how the flavours are developing. Never, ever return the contents to your fermentation vessel or demijohn, as you risk contaminating your brew.
