Ah cool- that's great info for reference. I probably should just be ultra careful and take some readings to get an idea of how well these stickers are working in this new basement.

Somewhat related- I borrowed an infrared point-and-shoot thermometer from work to try some handling-free temperature gathering but it didn't like going through the carboy, unfortunately.

I always check the stick on thermometer when I transfer my cooled wort into the fermenter, they give me plus or minus a few degrees and a guide as to whether the wort is heating up, by now means are they accurate enough to be written in stone, buta guide nonetheless
