Non-Contact Digital IR Thermometer – back at $4.26!

71Cy3fP+KnL._SL1181_

This infrared thermometer from Nubee measures in C or Fahrenheit has an auto off feature and a lower batter indicator.  It has a red laser pointer for precise aiming.  It also have a max temperature function.  With that it will take the highest temperature of the area tested.  The max is shown at the bottom of the display while the current temp is shown at the top.  US FDA, FCC, CE and ROHS Approved.

Since this is no touch, you can check the temp of yeast washing and yeast rehydration water and your starter wort without the risk of infection.  I find mine particularly useful for rehydrating yeast.

Infrared thermometers should not be considered a direct replacement for your standard thermometer.  A quality IR thermometer will give you a close approximation of surface temperatures.  Note that steam seems to throw off readings.  Uses include: Contained yeast rehydration water, chilled wort or starter temperature, kegerator, fermenter or fermenation area and beer tasting samples.  If you’re looking for a standard thermometer, consider these two Top FindsCDN DTQ450X – ThermoWorks Thermapen

12/14/17 10 PM Central: This is available again for $4.26.  That’s an 80% discount from current list price and the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Shipping to most US addresses is also free, with a qualifying order, as part of the Amazon’s Add On promotion. Note: we featured this a few days ago at the same price and it sold out relatively quickly…  Price, shipping and availability can change quickly.
