    OMG. Saw those 0's at the top and thought that was 1.000, didn't see the numbers were going
    down not up. So what have you been using for your other batches?Dude, I grabbed it from the
    store because I ...

    I've been using this cooler for the last 4 years and I get 85% efficiency. Used 1/2" copper
    with a tee, 90 degree elbow, and threaded connector. Here are a couple of pics: have been
    looking all over ...

    I think you have an Alchohol Hydrometer... for measuring proof of distilled spirits... not
    gravity readings for beer.Unbelievable! I guess that's it!:mug::cross:Crap:mad:

    Here you go...I'm baffledhttps://youtu.be/OrtFJv3CvNwBTW this is the first time I use this
    hydrometer it's brand new

    OK so what if I use orange juice?It's got sugar no? :D

    Well if the hyrometer was reading no sugar that thing would sink all the way down and be
    reading 1.000. I'd love to see a video of you pushing the hydrometer to the bottom seeing it
    shoot back up if i...

    Bunch of trub in the bottom of the test cylinder sounds plausible. Especially since it looks
    like the wort has a ton of suspended particulates. OP: Any chance you are testing the dregs
    from the BK aft...

    What do you mean the refractometer is suggesting there's no sugar, it's reading between 1.055
    and 1.060. Can't tell from the pic but I assume you must have a bunch of compacted trub in the
    tube that t...

    I would go with the refractometer reading, and try the hydrometer again in a new sample.What
    did your recipe predict your gravity would be?The recipe said 1.055
