I went 20 years without breaking a single one, then a couple weeks ago, I broke 2 within 10 minutes of each other!

I recently bought a digital refractometer. I also bought a FG hydrometer (really fat one for more accurate FG measurements), but I've always broken mine on brewdays, so hopefully that's the last of my breakages

I'm on number four in a year of brewing. My son pulled one off the counter today and dropped it. Ready for a new one!
