So I did an idiotic thing... after sanitizing the hydrometer, I decided to drop it directly into the carboy (since this had worked quite well when I had checked OG). Of course, since the SG had dropped, the hydrometer didn't float as high, and I couldn't get it out.
So, I boiled and cooled some water, then added that to the carboy to bring the water level up. I added about a quart of water, so I'm sure I could calculate the ABV% pretty easily.
Final gravity reading (before adding water) was somewhere between 1.009 and 1.010, so pretty much unchanged from last week.
