When I was kegging my latest batch, I had just washed the hydrometer and it was in the drying rack. I knocked into when I was getting ready to wash something else and sheared the top off.

My second hydrometer slipped through my fingers two weeks ago when I was tipping it out of my thief. It hit the sink and got a hairline, which I taped up. Today, when I went to grab it, the crack turned in to the top 1/2 cm of the thing being lopped off.

So this puts me at two in less than 5 months. Wowee.

197

I broke my third one about six months ago, and I never replaced it.

I'm probably weird in the brewing community, but I don't really feel the need to check anymore. I've brewed often enough and understand my equipment and process to the point where I know what I'm going to get 'close enough' for me.

Brewing is more art than science to me, and as long as I follow my process, I know I'm hitting the important numbers.

I suppose that if I ever change a component in my system (mashtun, burner or boil kettle), I'll start taking readings again until I dial that component in, but for now, I'm happy that the pale ale I make today will be the same as the one I made a year ago.
