An aside that's sure to jinx me, but what the heck...

I've never broken a hydrometer. I have broken four sampling tubes - including two acrylic ones - which shatter just like glass.

Carry on...

Cheers!

I guess I didn't follow the rules, and my post didn't make it into the count.

So, the total is 524.
