Chocolate, According to Baume

Dear Lab Guy, I got this Baume hydrometer (Thomas Scientific art. no 6025f91 SP Bel-Art's sku B61806-0500) and I am wondering if I can use it at high temp like 70®C, I would like to use it in my chocolate making but don't want to break it.

Hydrometer Documentation

Dear Lab Guy, We bought a DURAC Hydrometer back in 2018 (Serial #: 4263898 ASIN: B00NG2601C Item model number: B61801-4600) on Amazon. It states everything was calibrated to the NIST but we never received a certificate. Do you know where I can find this certificate of calibration? Do you also have calibration liquids to test if the hydrometer is calibrated for purchase? Thank you!

Measuring Alcohol Content in Sanitizers

Dear Lab Guy, I would like to purchase your item B61809-4100 to test the content of alcohol in hand sanitizer. I see that it is currently out of stock, can you recommend something to perform a comparative test, having a known specimen?
