Just curious, what kind of effect would the presence of:

A) a decent yeast starter (minus starter beer)
B) hop pellet fragments (assuming no hop bag)
C) vigorous manual aeration
D) oxygen injection
E) break material

...have on an OG reading?

I always measure OG before pitching and aeration, but I usually have hops in there.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
