Default Can I put a Digital Therm. in my Primary?

My side sticky temp is going bad. Could I sanitize my digital probe and put it in the primary. It has a long metal cord and I could seal the primary over it. What do you guys think?

Depends on your thermometer. Some of the ones with cords aren't immersible on the cord part. If you can just put the probe into the liquid, and don't stick the cord part in, you'll be ok. If your cord is waterproof, even better yet.

If it is water proof you should be fine.
