Broke my first one on a brew night...had a friend who brews swing by and bring his so I could get my numbers...broke his too in the same night. The very next brew day I broke my replacement. I've since changed my processes to allow for clumsiness

So that's three hydrometers, and two thermometers. Yep, pretty bad.

About two weeks ago had mine roll off my counter on to my pull out cutting board so like a two inch drop. It blow the end out an bb's went every where. The ends are so thin. 558
