Confectionery/Using Brix Refractometer

i use a refractometer almost everyday at work to test the brix of corn syrup and sucrose for ice cream production for home use the compensation temperature range is not that big of a deal to worry about it is only needed in lab use when you need to keep the constants even they use a water bath to control the temp of the len and solution being measured any hand held refactometer should be fine for candy making there easy to use
