Found this on the wiki:

The following corrections are for a Hydrometer rated at 15C / 60F

10C (50F) -0.005
15C (60F) -None
21C (70F) +0.001
But what if the temp. was 68dF? Adjust +0.001 because it's closer to 70dF? I took a reading of 1.047.

Also, does it matter that I got a bunch of "crumbs" (bits of the steeping grain that were small enough to escape the mesh bag) in the cylinder? They settled to the bottom before I took the reading. They got into the cylinder because I took the sample from the spigot on the fermenter. Guess they were still swirling around in there. Will that make my reading bogus?

Yeah, that is close enough. Don't worry about the protein break, I usually just let it settle out.
