But, now that you mention it.

You make me chuckle. I too have a custom dipstick but I am already on the dark side, and my next upgrade to my BK/HLT's is a slight glass.
But the dipstick works well! I have used it on every batch and if calibrated well is virtually fool proof.

I normally don't espouse the dark side, but when I do, I mention we have beer and cookies.
