Subject: Instruction-less hydrometer...

I have a hydrometer without instructions. I'm trying to find out what the correction factor is for temperature. I was wondering if anyone had some info on this.

I usually take hydrometer readings right before pitching (at approximately 95 degrees F) and right before bottling (at approximately 65 degrees F). I suspect that the correction factor is very low but I'm not sure. Right now I feel that I might be comparing apples to oranges.

Any help would be appreciated.
