I bought a new thermometer today i think youse may just like it. My other digital one gave up the ghost last weekend so i took a trip to me local brew store and came out with a few goodies. This is a digital thermometer pure distilling is the title name but the cool thing is you can set it to sound an alarm when a temperature is reached perfect fir getting my lazy but into gear come mash in time. It also has a timer function on it so you can set the next mash step or brew timer with it as well. But it also doubles up for cooking the sunday roast just poke the probe in the meat set your roast temp and it will sound when the temp is reached. Why havnt i bought one sooner im thinking. The cord can withstand heat to 300c and it has an alarm inbuilt incase i test that theory. Anyhow ill leave it with youse anyone got one of these any pros and cons to them let me know. Cheers . In that photo the top one is the temperature reading and the bottom one is the alarm temperature nifty eh? This way the steamy wort will be nowhere near the elecrronics too.
