I just found my hydrometer broken. It was 19 years old and passed down from my dad. Its what I get for not storing it in its container. At least I made it 3 years without breaking it

740 - that's what I get for keeping it in an unsecured location

741. But, I'm out of CO2 and need some ingredients for the next batch or 2. I think I might pick up a couple hydrometers, just in case it happens again.

742 Somehow I lost the cap to the sheath. I was walking across the kitchen from the beer cabinet to the sink to sanitize. My girlfriend said something from the other room. I quickly turned to hear what she was saying, but didn't realize I was holding the hydrometer almost parallel to the floor. The hydrometer went flying out of the sheath like a jai ali ball.

I finished my batch and started another one before I replaced it. I have both batches a little extra time to make sure they were done.

743. I just need to leave it in the sheath until I get out to the garage. Fortunately I had an extra. I'll have to buy another extra.

Didn't help me, broke because it was in the sheath and I didn't see that the clear cover was off. Who puts a clear cover on these things really? Guess it's one way to ensure I buy another.

745-- was shaking some sanitizing solution off of it and the damn thing exploded in my hand. Glad I wasn't cut.

747 - Have no idea how it happened. Put hydrometer into pot filled with PBW solution, along with a vinyl hose and some other stuff. I remeber putting the hydrometer last, I turned around for a minute or two, turned back and suddenly noticed two pieces of the hydrometer floating in the solution. I have no idea how it broke, I'm sure it was still intact when I put it into the cleaning solution.

748 - It finally happened. I was cleaning it in the sink with a soapy sponge, and it slipped right out of my hand, shattered in the sink. The wife picked me up TWO on her way home from work. Winning!
