I'm with homercidal (well, not 20 years ago...I was still in elementary school 20 years ago)...maybe you guys shouldn't be using your hydrometers to stir your wort or swordfight pirates or whatever the hell it is you're doing with them. Or just get a refractometer and forget about it.

Oh, and as for the "don't drink while brewing" thing: you, sir, can just shut the hell up! Brewing sober is blasphemy.

How old are you, and how old were you when you started brewing??

I claim it's a conspiracy to generate repeat customers. Kinda like how the first rock is free... only in this case, it isn't.

Still have multi hued hydro from original Coopers kit from almost 2 years ago. I know, no where near Homercidals 20yrs, but still...

Did break the testing vessel, but only a crack around the very top, so it's still servicable.

Get a refractometer and never have to worry about that long glass tube again. I know Promash will do the conversion for you, I think Beersmith does as well. There is also an Excel spreadsheet that does the conversion for SG after fermentation begins. I'm at work and don't have the link here, but a search could provide one.

Now, about those hookers............

Oops, I wrote that wrong. I was in elementary school 20 years ago. Fixed!

I started brewing in July 2006. I'm currently 29.

If you really want an unbreakable hydrometer, look up "nalgene hydrometers". Oh but they are pricey. Oh yes.
