790

In my weekend marathon of painting (painted office, hallways, and living room)while my fermenting chamber (Fish Tank stand) was in the middle of the room, covered in a sheet, my effing cat got a little curious and knocked over the hydrometer in its test tube with a StarSan solution.

Luckily I have another one.

796.

I broke one a few years ago. It didn't roll off, nor did I drop it. I babied it for several years. One time I was done using it, washed and dried it, grabbed the tube it came in, slid it in, and out the bottom it came. Now I always cradle the bottom whenever I put it back in the sleeve.
