So how do I tell the alcohol content if there is no reading on the hydrometer? Just go with the pre fermentation sh?

Your hydrometer doesn't read below 1.000?

Yes the reading is no longer within any.of the readable area. It's to the negative side of the lines

Pretty sure thats impossible so I would say temp is not being compensated for but in all likelihood the ferment is done

It means your hydrometer is broken. This is beer you are making and not wine?

What does "After I need my bruh" and "bail out?" mean?
