I've lost count, but it certainly extends into double digits.

I don't break them any more because I use a refractometer for OG's, and it doesn't roll off the counter. It's probably paid for itself by now just in saved hydrometer expenses. It's certainly paid for itself in saved time and wasted wort.

I broke my third one last week. I was pulling some tubing out of a box and didn't see that the hydrometer was in-tangled in it. It fell on the floor and that's all she wrote! I didn't have it in it's storage container and I hope I've learned my lesson.

No, it was gas.

Actually, I bloated the sheep with spent grain, pegged the pigeon from across the brewery with a full bottle of beer and crushed the mouse with a cornie of dopple bock.

Each beer was named for the deceased:
Silence of the Lambic
Pelted Pigeon Pale Ale
Rodent Back Grand Cru
What a great setup!


I bet your sermons are spectacular.

I still have my first one. Now that I posted this, it will surely break the next time I use it.

Broke my first one tonight while bottling my Cherry Stout. Thanks for jinxing me. It was in the tube with a sample to test and my elbow knocked it off the table. Worst part is I had not observed the FG reading yet

I busted one a couple months back. I had set it on my drying rack, and then I accidentally hit it with a measuring cup . . .

Broke my first one while brewing my second batch. Had just taken my OG reading and cleaned it up. The storage container for it was a hollow tube with caps on each end. When I was placing it back in the tube it pressed on the foam on the other end and out it popped of the tube and on to the floor. I have a much nicer storage case now
