i know there are temp corrections when taking a gravity reading. the instructions say something like 20 Degrees F above 68 add 0.002. I took a reading when it was still at 120 F, and i put it in the frig to cool down to 70, well i ended up dropping the dang thing so i lost my sample without lettign it cool. is it safe to assume that since i'm about 50 F above, that i can just add 0.005 to what the sample read, or when it gets above 100 F does it mess throw the reading off more?
