Something is terribly wrong in the Twilight Zone. I still have my first one.

Carrying too much beer stuff and it slid off the pile.
Now have a hydrometer and refractometer. I'll probably bust the refractometer, too.

I broke 2 in a row. The last one I was putting it back into its holding tube and the bottom plug fell out.... Never even got to use it. LOL

753 I only got one reading out of mine before my bottle capper fell into it as I was moving equipment to a "safer" place. Worse yet, that one reading was an OG for an extract batch, so basically unnecessary

So now we have to ask WTF your hydrometer was doing in your sock drawer.

I had my brew stuff in the spare bedroom and it has one of those lights that warms up so it is initially dark. The room is used for me to put my suits on in the morning. I have one of those triple stacked plastic containers that holds my socks so it was pulled out on the bed. Hydrometer slipped right out of the tube and landed on the corner of the pulled out drawer. Needless to say, pretty sure I got glass in my foot this morning.

Broke 2 last year, 1st one died on my 1st brew day as I put it in it's container I didn't realize that the bottom was loose and it fell thru to the ground. Second one died while doing a partigyle, double decoction brew. It was a long brew day and needless to say I was tanked by the end and kinda threw it on the ground accidentally.
