I believe classification 1A allows for it. Judging by the commercial "examples" listed by the BJCP.

My cat just tries to eat the malt as I'm weighing it. I may need to get the sanitizer out earlier in the brew day.

Eh whatever. It will be boiled for an hour and while this doesn't guarantee clean wort but I'll take the odds

Three hydrometers, three different readings.

Trying to remember which reads what is a pain.

If you let them start to roll toward the edge of the counter they usually behave for a while.

Only three? I have four.

Trying to remember which reads what isn't just a pain. Its impossible.

So I wrote a simple computer program with 5 steps:
  1. Select the hydrometer. (This determines what correction is necessary for that hydrometer)
  2. Enter the observed gravity
  3. Display the corrected gravity for the selected hydrometer
  4. Enter the temperature
  5. Display the temperature corrected gravity for the selected hydrometer at the measured temperature.

I can't believe how useful this program has been.
