I actually got 20 of these made up over the weekend, put the button up on Monday morning and sold them out by Tuesday afternoon. I know the price is decent but man....

Here's the good news, I'll have enough to last about a month starting in June. I'm ramping up production and will be just waiting for my thermometer shipment to get the ball rolling again. In the meantime, here's a nice pic of sirsloop's kettle with the calibrated thermo/sight installed. The same one in the youtube video.

Crapola, was watching this thread for a new supply. I'll be watching in June, it's only a few weeks away.

Nice and shiny keg...

im also looking for one of these! Also, i have the following brew kettle:

http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/brewing-equipment/brew-kettles/megapots/10-gallon-megapot.html

It makes me very nervous to start drilling holes in it! How do you know how high from the bottom of the kettle to drill your hole? Is it difficult to get the hole started with a step bit?

hmm, being that its just my brew kettle, i dont really need a thermometer. maybe ill just get the sight glass

Check out his webpage. Bobby didn't post that they were available but I just recently bought a bunch of stuff and was really happy. I ordered the Friday before the 4th of July and got it on the next postal delivery after the 4th. Turnaround and quaility is really good and my first AG is ready to be tested at the end of the month.

Plus he's got a video demonstrating installation and drilling into your pot/keg. It's simple

I wouldn't start the hole with a step bit, use a nail or punch to make a dimple in the side of the pot, drill a small 1/8" pilot hole for the step bit, then go to town! Make sure you use oil while you're drilling, and light-steady-even pressure will get the job done.

Interesting that most of the sight glasses you sell on your site are weldless.....

Maybe he changed his mind since 2 years ago.

I have bobby_m weldless sightglass/thermometer combos on my HLT and boil kettle (both converted sankes). I love them. No leaks. The new eye bolt for securing the tops and the decals are great improvements.
