I use La Crosse Alerts, its a WIFI based temperature probe. It's on Amazon for about $75-$80 (Link to the product). It has been very accurate, and beyond the great live chart available both on an app and website, you can download the data directly to a spreadsheet. You can also set alerts to your phone or email based on parameters you set! Hope this helps ...
A few suggestions: check the probe type is correct in the PID firmware calibrate the temp close to where the typical PID setting will be. set the degree offset in the PID to be equal to a trusted thermometer at that typical temp.
I also use a water bath for controlling fermentation temps. I found a bluetooth weatherhawk temperature sensor that reports to a mobile app and it is waterproof. So I built an stc 1000 temp controller to selectively switch between an aquarium heater & small recirc pump on the hot side and a peltier liquid chiller on the cold side.
Measuring the wort temperature directly gives the most accurate information. To do this, you'll need to hook up a thermowell to your fermenter. There are a variety of styles for different types of fermenters. The second best option is to tape the temperature probe to the side of your fermenter and cover with an insulator like styrofoam or bubble wrap. The ...
