Does hydrometer work on carbonated beer?

Carbonation in your wort will make the hydrometer float higher, giving you a falsely high gravity reading if you don't.

How do you know when degassing is done?

One of the telltale signs that your wine is not properly degassed is if it still fizzes after stirring. To check whether your wine is properly degassed, take a spoon or stirring rod and stir your wine. If you notice foam or a string of bubbles rising to the surface, your wine is not completely degassed.
