Now that would have been the logical thing to do but, once again, I'd like to refer you to point #3 of my lessons learned. I don't see a problem with doing that as long as the samples warmed up to room temperature. I guess I could still send one of my brews in for really expensive caloric and alcohol testing and figure out my OG from there. Haha Anyways, it ended up tasting how I wanted so I guess that's all that matters.

Psht the first day I started brewing I got my reading and because it was wet it slipped straight out of my hands, smashing into hundreds of small shards along my kitchen floor... :P What a good way to start a hobby huh? lol

Mine was over a year ago so not sure if it should be added, but when I first started brewing my dumb self would put them in the carboys. I broke one trying to get it out with a needle nose pliers.

Agh, chalk me up for two. Both times I just dropped the thing onto the carpet. The glass stem snapped both times and that was it.

Add one more to the list. I broke mine as it was drying in the dish rack.
