Ironically that was my experience as well, my hygrometer was very close, but I have heard horror stories.

What is this new toy you have Brookster? I might need to look into this.

A refractometer, much more accurate than most hygrometers, pretty cheap too.

Oh I'm not disagreeing, but it sure was a mighty fine Xmas present. I've never needed to re-calibrate it. Been spot on every time. As the years go on and the more things I add to my system the more time I get to spend enjoying it.
