That reminds me of finding out I could re-use the pop up timers for chicken or turkey.
This thread is good to know for what not to do. Will that prevent me from destroying another hydro in some stupid way? No.

+1 = 306.

I was sure it would never happen to me. Left it on the table, in the container for it, and it rolled off. Lucky it only shattered in the container, easy cleanup. Still, now one of my brews is FG=how should I know. heh...

+1=311

Was cleaning some equipment and had it in some star san and I lightly dropped my baster in the water from maybe half a foot above and split the damn thing in half. Cant believe how easy that 10 dollar piece of glass is...

Note to self. Never clean anything else with my new 10 dollar fragile piece of glass.

It popped out as I was shutting the drawer that it was housed in. Broke it really well.
