This Glass Beer and Wine Thief makes it quick and easy to take small samples of homebrew beer or wine for testing. The 12" long thief has a convenient indentation at the top that allows for comfortable gripping between the index and middle fingers, and the bottom has a narrow spout that helps to control the release of your sample. Simply submerge the thief in the beer or wine, cover the top hole with your finger, and lift out the sample and release it into a testing container.
