Default Good bye old friend

It took 82 batches but finally my original hydrometer hit the floor nad shattered into a million pieces . Maybe there should be ab anti glass hydrometer thread warning people of the dangers of glass and how we should use plastic hydrometers.

Almost lost my originaly hydrometer a couple months back after having it for over 5 years. Picked up the tube it's held in and the bottom fell out and it fell to the concrete floor. It SOMEHOW survived the 5ft-ish fall and is still being used today

Because you have a back up, you will never break one. Those of us that dont think ahead tend to break them.

I used to brag but then I drunkenly tossed mine into the starsan bucket without thinking. I find that at the root of all my brew day disasters is me being drunk.

I've got a backup, but I haven't needed it. I've used the same one for 85 batches. I drink coffee until the batch is chilling.

I am a morning brewer also. That probably has a lot to do with not doing anything crazy. Saison scheduled for tomorow morning.
