Hey I just want to make sure all my thermos are calibrated properly, it might be a little late since I have made about 10 batches with them. But better late than never right? How?
Put a glass of ice water in the freezer for a few mins, your thermometer should read 32, then boil some water, right at the beginning of the boil, it should read 212. If it doesnt, most dial thermometers can be adjusted with a nut in the back
Here's a great article in BYO that explains how in painstaking detail.http://www.byo.com/departments/1439.html
My thermometers are reading all over the place, it looks like I need the calibration curve. thanks for the link
damn I gotta brew something
I use an infrared thermometer, which is great. No sanitation issues that way. Accuracy is +/-1 degree C (2 degrees F) from throughout most of the normal range (ie, brewing range)
