Non-contact IR Thermometer [Yeast Starters, Rehydration Water & More] – $6.99 + Free Shipping

Thermometer Gun Nice Non-Contact LCD IR Laser Infrared GM320 Digital Temperature

Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer

Features:

  • 100% Brand New.
  • ℃/℉ Selection
  • Data Hold function
  • Laser Target Pointer ON/OFF selection
  • Backlight ON/OFF selection
  • Auto Power Shut Off in 7 seconds without any operation

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
