Reader Tip: Non-Contact IR Thermometer

Thanks to HBF Reader Scott for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 Non-contact Digital Laser IR Infrared Thermometer Temperature Gun, Yellow/Black

Lasergrip 1080 Non-Contact Thermometer by Etekcity.  Measures in C and F.  Built in laser for precise aiming.  Auto shut off and hold functions.  Low battery indicator and backlit LCD display.  FDA, FCC, CE, ROHS approved; 2-Year Warranty by Etekcity.

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
