I saw it in a video about hydrometer, and I can't find anywhere where to buy this gigantic dropper. what are its name and size? It seems about 250ml which is what I need. Thanks!

The tube in the center, ignore the tube on two sides

  • any recommendations about the material the wine thief is made of? when i brewed ginger bug, steel utensils was a big no-no so i am wondering about steel wine thief Vs plastic/glass. amazon seems to have all sorts but steel is the more common one by the looks of it. – Julien C Apr 3 at 14:54

It is called a 'wine thief'. This should be readily available in any homebrew shop. Possibly in several sizes and qualities even.

    I have a plastic wine thief after my first glass one shattered. The glass version i had was very thin glass so very fragile. A plastic one might be a little more robust to accidents... – Julien C Oct 27 at 15:09

You can also use a standard cooking baster to transfer liquid to your hydrometer vessel, but I'd recommend one that's made of glass and has a removable rubber bulb.
