    This one agrees temp with the spot check. The other one I bought is two degrees cool.

    Maybe I didn't do the salt test right? I used a water bottle cap not quite full of salt and enough water to wet it all down, then put it in a quart ziplock for a few hours.

    Twenty four hours is what I read... but that doesnt mean I am right. I almost set my hydrometer but then just calibrated the new thermo instead and compared the two.

    The links I found were an 8-hour method and a 4-hour method. I did the 4 hour.

    I must've done it wrong because it's up to 71% already. I mean, it was still at 67% when I changed the salt and water.
