What is the best way to take a hydrometer reading from a carboy?  Do you float the hydrometer in the carboy or do you take the beer out for the reading?  What is the best way to remove the beer if done outside the carboy.

Thanks

Either way will work just be sure whatever you stick into the carboy is completely sanatized!  I personally like to take a draw out of the carboy so it can de-gass properly for the reading.  A turkey baster actually works pretty well, fits in the carboy and make it easy to suck up a reading's worth of wort quickly....
