As of this posting, ThermoWorks, makers of the nearly universally lauded Thermapen, have discounted select infrared thermometers by up to 61%.  Lots of models to choose from.  No coupon or promo code is necessary, check site for current selection and pricing.

About their lineup, from ThermoWorks: “Easily measure surface temperatures with ThermoWorks non-contact IR guns, ideal for produce and agriculture inspectors, HVAC, construction, warehouse, quality assurance, HACCP and cold chain management, both shipping and receiving. Choose from fixed or adjustable emissivity, single, dual or circle laser types, and lens optics from close focus—for electronic components and laboratory measurements—to 100 to 1—for long distance measurements. High temperature ranges up to 3272°F (1800°C) are perfect for metallurgy and metal work foundries.”

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
