Thermometer Trouble...possible
« on: August 12, 2010, 11:51:36 PM »
      I had my brew day and everything went pretty well. I was cleaning up and had my brew pot soaking in brewer cleaner and parts soaking in the pot. Well the lady of the house tried to help straighten up and put my thermometer in the pot submerged in the water. Now the thermometer has some water in the dial part and I have no clue how to get it out without damaging the gauge. Does anyone know how to get the liquid out or if I leave it in will it cause problem?

Perhaps leave it out in the sun and maybe evaporation will do it's thing. I'd recalibrate it after it's dry.

Place it in a bowl of dry rice or diatamatious earth.  The rice thing works good for cell phones that get wet.  Diatamatious Earth is the same idea.  just sucks up any possible liquid.  And +1 on re-calibrating.  Good luck.

  Thanks guys. I was going to ask about calibrating it but I seen a post by my friend "dhacker" about calibrating thermostats. Kind of funny we both are having troubles with thermostats.
