I spoke with josh today, they won't have anyone to take live calls on Friday. He said when you go to checkout select extra fitting and qty of extra fitting then there should be a place for comments. Describe what u want there as best as possible. He said an additional fitting for a thermowell are very common and are usually just an additional 1.5 inch fitting right above the cone/ 5 gallon mark and that's how I should try and describe in the notes. I'm thinking I may get another fitting on the top identical to the one that comes standard and is used as a blow of port so when doing pressurized ferments I can have the spunding valve on one and the other fitting with a cap that has a pressure relief valve like you find on top of a ball lock keg. If that ends up being a dumb idea I can always just cap it and not utilize it.
You could always order it without the chiller and if you decide you want it buy it later. Not sure if the non tc version can be retrofitted with the chiller (honestly I haven't even looked at the non tc) but the tc ones it's a drop in unit.
That being said I like the idea of the chiller since I'm ordering two I'm planning on using a small chest freezer like others have done and using two pumps for each conical. Should help with overall space that's used.
