    Once you got this worked out, good suggestions above, don't forget to use one of the online
    calculators to convert your reading into the correct SG.Thanks, I looked online for the formula
    and made a s...

    I would filter the sample through a paper towel to reduce the particulate/yeast matter.Now I'm
    really starting to regret not posting this while I had the problem! Thanks for the suggestion,
    I hope I'l...

    You could freeze it and use it for a liquid yeast starter. Just un-freeze it, re-boil it and
    use it.Anyway, +1 to re-boil it as Gnomebrewer said. You could loose a bit of hop aroma this

    Make sure you only have one light source. Multiple light sources will blur the readings.I had
    the same feeling. Tried it with the light of my garage (where I brew) which is a energy saving
    bulb and ou...

    Mine has a focusing adjustment near the eye piece, could it be something that simple?I tried
    that. As you can see, the numbers are very readable. If I change the focusing adjustment, the
    numbers blur ...

    Maybe a defective refractometer?I don't know, during the boil the line was very clear. Today I

    danstar belle...

    Sorry to hear about your densimeter (hydrometer?) Yep, hydrometer (just invented that term as
    an english version of the italian term, sob, but today I saw that it's also called
    densitometer, so I got ...

    Hello everybody,I recently broke the densimeter cylinder. Trying to replace it, I broke the
