The only thing I use mine for is to get a bad OG reading because of not making adjustments for temperature. I'm usually a bit tired and enjoyed enough beer to not be concerned, for some odd reason.

I have one somewhere, but it seems like I lost it. I used it for my first batch and decided that for me, it added no value. But I am a HIGHLY non-interventionist brewer. I delegate as much of the work as possible to the yeast. We (me and the yeast) both seem to be happy with how this works.

I was thinking the same thing. I gradually stopped using mine, but I hope to be doing AG in a month or so.
