I bought two extras, because they're cheap and I'm clumsy. Strangely, I have not broken any of them in the 19 months I've been brewing.

Now that I just bought a set of "precision" hydrometers and don't have extras, I'm pretty sure they're doomed.

I think so. Some people are missing the point of a "count" thread.

I broke another one Sunday while cleaning up after a brew session. I gently set it in the sink to rinse off the beer, and then less gently threw my brew pot on top of it a short time later.

I am 894.

897.

It was in the sleeve! I wasn't using it, holding it, I was minding my own business and the carboy decided that it needed to die. Crushed in the tube.

Why don't they make these things out of plastic?!!

If they made them out of plastic, then we wouldn't have this thread, now would we?
