    1.5 degree accuracy... :|

    I have literally no idea how this would compare with anything else though.

    I tried ordering one last night, but got stuck somewhere, have managed to get it sorted now. This will be useful as my probe thermometer packed up today while I was mashing, I had ordered another one off ebay, but that is coming from China, so who knows how long that will take to arrive.

    Mine arrived today! It seems to work well, don't know how accurate it is , but my cat sure loves chasing that little red dot on the carpet.

    I'm using mine in the bath right now. 48c. I can determine just the right time to add more water over the next few hours and plot a graph to account for the initial dip because of the steam heating the room and the pure soapy luxury that follows. The bubble bath is disrupting my readings.

    Funnily enough I did actually measure that. Because she is quite long haired, she is very well insulated and it measured 17°C, about the same as the ambient in the room. That got me to thinking about using cat fur as insulation for my pot while mashing, but decided to come to my senses before all the vegetablists got up in arms, again.

    My wife bought an infra-red thermometer for soap making, so I borrow it when I do a brew.
    Much easier than a conventional dip-in type. I can even take a reading of my FV standing 5 or 6 feet away.
    Its also handy to test the temperature of various household items, pets, kids, etc......

    Being able to take the temp 5/6 feet away from the fv sounds great! The constant boil overs and boiling wort spitting over the kitchen can get a bit dangerous. ....

    Was your thermometer delivered by UPS or by normal mail?

    I missed a UPS delivery today, and don’t know if it’s the thermometer or something else.

    Thanks! I've ordered too many brewing bargains recently. Hard to keep track of them.

    I often think theyl be a time i drop my digital one in the boil. All.that effort and glorious malt and hops wasted. Unless of course battery acid improves hard water

    I spose it depends on if the kid who made it was provided a decent bike by his emoloyers. Puncture repair kit, one pack of noodles and one bottle of green tea for the journey.
