Taylor Dual Function IR and Probe Thermometer

Taylor Professional 9306N Dual Temp IR/Thermocouple Thermometer

The Taylor 9306N is a Dual Function Infrared Thermometer -AND- Probe Thermocouple Thermometer.

Features a temperature range of -67 to 482 degrees Fahrenheit via the infrared thermometer or up to 626 degrees Fahrenheit with the probe, this thermometer.  5″ long stainless probe.  Auto shutoff.  Uses easy to find AAA batteries.

Since the IR function on 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.

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.

    I have one of these – love it. I use the probe to get my mash temp – takes about 3 seconds. I use the IR to take the temp of starter wort, yeast before pitching, etc.

    The IR thermometer is also key to getting that first pancake to come out right. 375-400F, not too much oil, and they’ll be GBD first time.
