Accidentally set my full fermenter on top of mine; turns out the glass is fragile. Who knew?

Didn't even break this one. My brother took it out of the cabinet to get something out, show how it slide out of its tube. Gunna have to make a trip to the LHBS to buy another....

I stepped on mine. Don't ask me what it was doing in the middle of the floor. I still have no idea.

+1 however many that is 763. I was being so careful too. Cleaning up, washing stuff after pitching, etc. Very carefully put the clean hydrometer on a towel to dry, continued to wash and leaned a plate up against the pot I had there draining........and it teetered and fell over........on the hydrometer. Sigh.

This is awesome. I just found this thread. If I only knew about this since the beginning. I've lost count, and finally gave up and got a refractometer. But I know I broke 2 last year. So +2 for last year, 765.

getting a $30 refractometer off of ebay was one of the better brewing purchases i've made in the last year. some things like a chiller and temp control will improve the quality of your beer, and folks should probably invest in those first. a refract falls into the "makes life easier" category. i can't imagine brewing without one now.
