I wouldn't feel too bad. I made the same mistake when I bought my refractometer a few weeks ago. I had two different beers fermenting and was scouring through my entire brewing process trying to figure out why my FG's were so high. Then I found out the alcohol throws off the brix reading and you need to convert. You would think they'd put that in the directions....

Refractometer doesn't work right with alcohol its designed to measure h2o solutions. I was going nuts trying to figure out why all my fg's were in the mid 20's.
