Our 2013 Siebel Seat Giveaway contest has ended, and the winner is: Rob with his review of our MT300 Hydrometer!
"If you're not using a hydrometer or refractometer, this will be the best 6 bucks you will spend. This one is easy to read and the accuracy is great when checked against a refractometer."
Thank you for everyone that participated. We encourage you to stay tuned for future contests and giveaways!
