    Just be sure to recirc water in the tank you put the coil in. Otherwise warmer water will tend
    to stay near the outside of the coil and not chill as effectively. Keep it moving and it'll
    work a bit be...

    Thermapen is expensive. Very expensive. Especially compared to the RT600C. And the rotating
    switch to turn it on and off fails fairly easily. Had to send it back in for service twice. At
    $25 a trip. T...

    I have a thermapen and an rt600c. I use the RT600C for pretty much everything these days. Best

    I've had issues with my thermapen, so I bought a Thermoworks RT600C as a backup. 6 months later

    (when it wor...

    Found the website where they listened thermapens in blue for 33

    Here's another way to do it, cheaply. Although it's on Angelfire, so that's a detractor in my

    Beersmith actually has some pretty decent descriptions of each of the ingredients housed
    therein. I find myself referring to it for many things including what types of ingredients to
    add to certain st...

    Check out other options in the labeling forum for attaching labels beyond using the Avery ones.
    I hate getting those things off of bottles. Turns out that just using plain old printer paper
    works well...
