Since the cheese making process happens at temperatures similar to our healthy body temperatures, a good quality medical thermometer can be used to calibrate your new thermometer, since they tend to be extremely accurate for this short range.
1. Run some warm water to between 88-98F into a container deep enough to immerse both thermometers and place thermometers in the water.
2. Read both thermometers once they have stabilized.
3. If your new thermometer is not reading at the same temp as the medical thermometer, locate the nut found under the dial head.
4. Using a wrench, turn the nut clockwise or counterclockwise as needed until the needle on reads the same temperature as the medical thermometer.
5. Your good to go!!! Repeat this procedure every 2 months or as needed.
