I'll try this. We were not together when we took the readings. Perhaps one of us had too many Hop Slams? I have photo documentation though.
In my defense, I only had one HopSlam! I was really puzzled by this one too. Trey, the next time we get together we need to check our hydrometers in some distilled water and see what's going on. I guess the most logical explanation is that yours is not reading correctly, since I checked it with two different styles/brands of hydrometers. But, I guess there is a chance that both of mine are faulty though. Can't totally rule that out.
