535 dropped it in the sanitizer a little too hard.

So far the break count is at 1 hydrometer and 1 thermometer.

536 and 537. Don't know how I did the most recent one, just relaized that there was water in it when I was checking the gravity on my last batch. On the bright side, that means the efficiency on that batch was better than I thought it was!

3rd one here as well, but over 2 years time.

New one has nice colors on it though, and Brix and alchohol too!

Ditto on still using the first hydrometer ever bought. Its been with me for 10+ years now, and that includes brewing in the college days!

540...

Broke mine today *just* before measuring my caramel quad (and I really wanted to know since this was my first AG 'big beer')...saved a bit and have it chilling in the fridge...hopefully will be able to get a new one first thing tomorrow and get a fairly accurate measurement. I just might buy two to have one for an extra!

I test them in my water before every batch, Ive broken 2 and 2 went bad. That means Ive gone through 4 in two years... They go bad too easy, If you shake it too hard the paper inside will shift. Even an 1/8" will throw off your readings
