I slid my hydrometer back into the sample tube like I've done dozens of times and it broke in half.

679- dropped it on the carpet but it landed at a weird angle on the stem. It exploded like I had hit it with a hammer. Craziness. It was my first one, though.

680 -rolled off table after brewing 2nd batch ever. Decided I needed to be more careful.

681- getting ready to bottle 4th batch.carefully placed hydro in middle of table where I thought it was out of the way. After emptying carboy into bottling bucket placed carboy directly onto hydro to make room for the bucket. Man these things are sensitive at this rate I'm thinking I need to go ahead and buy one every time I get my grains

683 - I have absolutely no idea what happened. I was drawing my sample of cooled wort into the hydrometer tube and I noticed it didn't float. When I tried to move it the top half sprung up. I guess I was due. This one made it over 2 years. Just sucks because I have no idea what the OG is on my new IPA recipe. Oh well..

685- 13 years ago, rolled off the counter, & onto the floor.
686 & 687- early this year, a week apart. same story.

2 replacements & all my fingers crossed. which makes it hard to type.

689 - Broke my buddy's hydrometer while washing it. Had to give him my spare - brewing dangerously now!
