Good catch. You would've been like- I think the hydrometer is on the fritz, wait the carboy shrank, ummm .. Is that chiller thinking about being an oxygenator prematurely? That made me laugh, I woke this morning after going out and put water in the coffee maker twice. Lots of colored water everywhere but no coffee.
