1015. Lost my first one last weekend, days before taking my last reading to confirm that I was at FG.

1022 and 1023

1022: stupid newbie, ten years ago. I put it on a counter, and it rolled off. Hyrdrometers don't bounce.

1023: Three weeks ago - during a normal SG test, the bulb on my hydro split into three. No idea why.

My third hydrometer in ten years is happy and healthy and currently swaddled in bubble wrap!

I don't break hydrometers. Only sloppy brewers do who pay no attention to details and are not careful in the least.

Famous last words ;p.

I didn't break one, but I had a dream about breaking one last night. Weird.
