I bought one at the LHBS getting my stuff to start brewing and last week I made an order to northernbrewer and said "hmm better grab a few spare hydrometers since they're so easy to break".

Broke the hydrometer I had LATER THAT DAY! Yeesh wish someone made one a little less... breakable

I was shaking the excess water off of mine (holding it by the narrow end of course) and the bottom half snapped off and shot half way across the room.

I am going to look into a refractometer instead.

So after reliving my broken hydrometer story earlier, I broke another one this evening. Given that, I went searching. I found another post that referenced these. The other posters had favorable reviews. The way I see it, if I break two more hydrometers, I have spent as much money as this. Given that, I am a soon to be proud owner of a refratometer

Just ordered this exact one last week. it was here in 3 or 4 days. Sturdy feeling and i feel for $30 it's more than what i will need.

I will put it to test on my next batch. But i am very happy with it so far.
