ThermoWorks RT600C super-fast water-resistant digital pocket thermometer
- ThermoWorks (USA)
There are various times during the brewing process where we need to take temperature readings outside of the kettles (such as when taking sparge samples or after chilling the wort). We use a waterproof digital probe thermometer to do this.
A better digital probe thermometer that reads slightly faster than the entry level Taylor 9842 is the ThermoWorks RT600C Super-Fast Water-Resistant Digital Pocket Thermometer (shown in picture).It is (in our opinion) more 'commercial' grade and resilient than the Taylor 9842 even though the Taylor has the (somewhat meaningless) word 'commercial' right in the product name and the ThermoWorks RT600C does not (that's marketing at work for you).
It takes up to 5-6 seconds to take a reading so it's about twice as fast as the Taylor 9842.
For the best thermometer (the one we use and recommend), see the ThermoWorks Thermapen.
