Does a lost hydrometer count? I have been moving junk around, and now I can't find the damn thing.

Finally broke one last night. Something landed on it while sitting in starsan.

That was about a dozen batches worth.

74

I broke mine after three batches, and have made three more successful batches just guessing. Just got a refractometer though, and have yet to try it out.

+1 = 75

Notes on 1, dropping a hydrom into a beaker of isoproyl alcohol will not slow down before smashing off the bottom.

Notes on 2, hydroms make great "levels" also cause they roll off anything flat that is NOT level, and you wint forget it.

Notes on 3, They make lossey swords.

Notes on 4, They make great missles.

I'm currently awaiting my new refractometer from ebay, as I'm done with those damn rolling glass bastards.
