comment What to do when gravity comes out too low?
We dried it off and tried it several times. We have had it calibrated using distilled water and it reads zero. I don't know the formula for adjusting for temperature but I'm willing to bet it doesn't make that big of a difference. Our gravity wasn't even remotely close to what it should have been.

@jsled I will have to get back to you on the details. They're written on the instruction sheet at home

I do not think the volume of water had an effect. We tested it with a refractometer before adding any water and it was still really low. We also filtered out the hop pellets/chunks while pouring into the carboy using a screen. I haven't tried DME before but I will try to have some around in case this happens again

comment Should I test my water?
I can't quite pinpoint the taste. It's not bad unless it's too strong though. Some of our beers don't seem to have it at all.

Caps are nice if you like to keep a thermometer in the beer

comment Alternatives to a hydrometer?
Why are you putting it in such hot/cold beer? Wait until it is room temperature
