I have gone through 3 hydrometers so far (over probably 7 brews). I guess i'm clumbsy, just wondering if anyone else has broken any.

I've not broken any brewing yet. I did break one moving in 1999.

I had my first one that came with my first brewing setup kit, and I took the OG, and then after it fermented I went to get it to take a reading, and it was in pieces in the tube. I have no idea what happened to it, but I never got a new one. I thought about getting one just to tell the ABV, but I know that i can brew good beer without it.

So I guess my answer is 1, and then I gave up on them.

My next one will be my first. You might want to be a little more careful

I must confess.....don't even have one yet. But will be getting one when I'm out of kits and go with recipes to make sure I'm where I'm suppose to be.

I can't recall. Breakage happens. The real question is how many animals have you killed while brewing! My count is four.

You can't leave us hanging like that! You either need a new thread or hi-jack this one!!!
