I've got three dial-type thermometers and they do not stay calibrated. Have to check once a year and adjust them.

Although this is a bit of a pain--when i transfer cooled wort from my brew kettle to my fermentor i do not use any sort of tubing but rather have a brewing associate hold my funnel w/ screen as I pour through it. It takes a sanitized spoon to move some of the hopp/grain matter off the screen every once in a while but this aerate the wort really well as it falls into my primary from about a foot above...I used a dry yeast just the other day (LBHS was out of the liquid i really needed) and got bubbling within 75 min.
