My Coopers plastic hydrometer. Got very similar results compared to my glass hydro (not sure which one is closest to where it should be). Hope it'll be more forgiving and we can end the devastating sadness of broken hydrometers...

431... I had my hydrometer in the testing tube about ready to fill it with finished Celebratory Ale. my auto siphone tubing was bit cold and ridged and while trying to get it all into my sanitizer it flopped out and whacked my test tube off the table sending both of them onto the floor.

I searched for the Coopers Plastic thread and bought one asap. SWMBO said "what shipping costs more than the item does" to which I said how much will 10 glass hydrometers cost me

1st hydrometer broken in my fermentation bucket as it was getting the FG! I am brewing a gumballhead clone, and could not waste it because of a little broken glass... I racked to my secondary for dry hop after filtering the siphon through a hop bag, I will filter once into the bottling bucket and once more before bottling. I'm positive this is enough to filter any glass? Right? Is there any reason to dump this batch?

Fell over in the sink and was just a micro-second to slow to save it.
Number 2 for me.
