I had just bought my third last weekend when I saw AHS had the sale on refractometers so I picked one of those up. I'm done with the #*%& hydrometers.

I think the point of this thread is for people to make posts to it when they actually, newly, break a hydrometer, isn't it?

I've only dropped one which resulted in a clean up effort... I view it as paying homage to the beer goddess'.

so +1 here...

I was getting some odd readings from a hydrometer that was about 15 years old (I took a loooong break from brewing) so I calibrated it and discovered that it was off, like the paper slipped or something. So I bought a new one, used it once and after taking an FG reading started to wash it. I was cleaning it very gently and it...just...snapped. The glass was paper thin. Don't know if that's normal or not but I broke one and, maybe, wore one out. So two?
