I was trying to raise my humidity and I added some hot tap water and the temp in the incubator jumpted to 105f for about a minute before I noticed I opened to cool it down and it cooled down. Is this an instant death situation?
When I started out, I thought I'd be pretty good at guessing the temp of the water by sticking my finger in it - Wrong! It was always too hot or too cold and I'd see big temp flucuations. It didn't dawn on me to use a thermometer until I was rummaging thru the utinsel drawer one day and spotted it! I have no idea why it was there in the first place - I've never made candy!
