528 - slipped out of my hand and onto the concrete floor, right as I was thinking "I need to be careful with this - first time with a mill and I really want to know the efficiency."

Whoops.

530 - my OG was way lower than my BG . . . took me a minute to realize that the glass had cracked just ever so slightly and had let a little liquid inside.

Do floating thermometers count? I broke mine because I am stupid, I had it in the wort while I was using my immersion chiller and I was stirring to distribute the heat to the IC... craaaack. In the wort. Not cool.

Also, I had a hydrometer testing cylinder that I managed to break... a while ago, I had left some beer in it, and SWMBO thought it'd be a good idea to pour it out, leaving a sticky residue that clouded up the bottom of the cylinder. I never bothered with it but today I got fed up seeing it so I poured acetone into the plastic cylinder. Every part the acetone touched basically cracked and lost all integrity, so I could crush it with barely a tap. Also, when I poured out the acetone it left a weird white residue all inside of the cylinder, which I am guessing was the degraded plastic.
