I broke the first one I got, the first time I used it. Near the bulb on the end it was cracked, and started slowly filling with beer.

I've had two drops and this last weekend I was doing a Pliny the Elder clone and thought to myself "what the hell is wrong with this final gravity..." Here the damn paper scale in the tube somehow fell out and slid down onto the weight... So that would be three but, I would love to somehow get the paper to rise back up and save another one...

If you include people who added in their bulk broken hydrometers we are at 182.

Mine isn't broken because I don't need it to tell me that what I am testing is BEER!!!

Want me to break it? I don't give a crap.

By my count, we were at 188. Plus my first broken hydrometer last night: took my OG, washed the hydrometer and the cylinder, left the hydrometer sitting on top of the dish towel, walked away for 30 seconds then absent-mindedly grabbed the dish towel, flinging hydrometer onto the tile floor, where it obligingly shattered into many many pieces.

189.
