Why is it so that when ever you do a hydrometer reading in your hydrometer tube and you spin your hydrometer - why does it always finish facing away from you so you cant actually read it?

Do you have a brewing - Why Is It So?

Paul, I believe it's the same reason when you're bottling, you only have enough left to fill up the last tallie to 500mL, or the last stubbie to 200mL.

That is so true. Also one of the reasons I have ordered a refractometer.

Or when you screw the tap out of a fermenter to clean and put it back, it only tightens into place when the nozzle is facing up.

Or when the lid on your fermenter refuses to budge when trying to get it off after bottling, even though it has been greased with Vasso beforehand.

I bet if you were making wine it would come up on the beer the scale.

BTW there is an opportunity for someone to market the beer brewers hydrometer, SG scale printed all the way around.

Oh yes, and drop proof.

Or when you have someone over, for a brew session and you get an extremely slow (or stuck) sparge. :(

I throw on the answering machine when I'm brewing! Hell, I just about always have it on; everyone knows that I never answer the phone and ring my mobile

How about when you invite your mates over for a beer and your keg runs dry...... i hate when that happens. Or when you go to the fridge for the last beer and someone has already taken it.
