I always use separate plastic tubing for beer and wine, as you can see in the above photo the plastic tubing and paddle on the left are a green colour, they have been stained from the hops.  The plastic tubing and paddle on the right hand side are only used in winemaking.

I have checked my hydrometer and thermometer for accuracy.  I placed the thermometer in a pan of boiling water; it recorded a temperature of 98c.

The hydrometers supplied to homebrewers are usually calibrated to read 1.000 at 20c, when I tested mine in a test jar filled with water at 20c, it read 0.998, therefore I take this into account when I take readings of my brews.
