Default 4th brew, finally broke my first hydrometer

Moving my fermentation bucket off the counter, I knocked my hydrometer off the counter and shattered it. Guess it's good I got it over with so soon... I'm sure it won't be my last.

Good news is, the wort turned out great, I was able to take my reading before destruction.

Better than what I did

I was half in the bag, tired beyond belief and sat down on my hydrometer. I put the hydrometer on the chair and thought "I won't be sitting down for a while, it's safe here..."

I broke my First day one. Took the first OG, put it into the sink, when I looked back a while later, it was in 2 pieces....

You're now officially a homebrewer.

You have to record this monumental occasion here.

Forget graduating... Getting married... Having children... Or losing your virginity. You're now a man. Well done.
