I am about to give up at this point...

I also forgot my post boil gravity sample...

Now you know... And knowing is half the battle....

the other half is killing people.

My refractometer was $26. How much have you spent in hydros?

It sounds like your as accident prone as I am. I might have to recommend a refractometer or a custom made Kevlar hydro.

I think I have killed 4...

I am about done with these damned things....

A refractometer would be good for OG.... Then I will still need one for FG readings...

I think hydrometers should be considered a disposable part of your equipment, like racking canes and hoses.

I've been through three of 'em.

Incidentally, I didn't take a post-boil reading today either (and I can't even play the druck card - I was sober), but given that my preboil numbers were nuts-o, and my volume change was just what it was supposed to be, I'm going to assume my postboil OG and call it good.

No, there's a formula for that.
