I had a few issues with the hydro:
1 They don't read correctly at certain temps (lower temps seem to make them super inaccurate).
2 The are effected by water movement (thus the swinging)
3 Aren't nearly as accurate as a refractometer
4 A little tough getting an exact reading

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
