Took it out of the case, dropped it into the sample tube, and noticed all the weight balls sink to the bottom, bummer.

544! Smashed him in the sink like a moron. Ah, he was a good soldier. At least he didn't take out any beer with him...

547 and 548. Sonuva bish. One rolled off my bench so i went in the house to grab spare nimber 3 (the first one was spare 2 which was the replacement for spare 1....i buy in bulk.) Stuck it in my pocket, went back to the shop/ brewery.....sat down. RIP.

Once i finish off my last 2 im buying a refractometer.
