Is my reading correct [hydrometer pic]?

Hi All, can you tell me if I’m correct that my current reading is 1.0125. I’m at one hash mark below 1.01. My apologies for the crude rendition.
Thanks, Mike

Based on that drawing, I’d say you’re correct. Most of the consumer-grade hydrometers I’ve seen are graduated every 0.002 SG, though. So there would be four hashes between 1.01 and 1.02, and the first would be 1.012. Close enough either way.

Make sure you’re following the instructions that came with the hydrometer too. Top or bottom of the meniscus, temperature correction, etc.

Thank you!

It’s sooooo crude. How crude is it? I forgot a hash mark :cry:

1.012 then :slight_smile:

Delightful!

“Crude Rendition Pale Ale”…use the drawing on the label!

It certainly has a nice ring to it. The beer in the tank is a Saison, so how do you say, “Crude Rendition” in French/Belgian?

Are you reading at the bottom of the miniscus?

It would be something like “rudimentaire interpretation” or “interpretation rudimentaire” with the appropriate accents. I think the latter the better of the two.

But, does lose something in the translation, as they say… :slight_smile:
