Default Speidel fermenter thermowell

I know some folks use thermowells and some don't, however I like using them and recently bought a 15 gallonish Speidel plastic fermenter after realizing that if I blew hundreds on the stainless conical my wife was probably going to cause me to have an "accident". So, being tired of splitting batches, I bought this and wanted a thermowell. The longest I could find was the 12" from Brewers Hardware which I would have use except they are backordered. I was able to find this at Automation Direct for $28 plus shipping. It's stainless and 560 mm long (about 22"). This and a 1/2" SS nut and gasket from Bobby at Brewhardware and it's ready to go. I wanted to post in case another Speidel owner wanted to install a well into theirs.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

Copbrew, this is exactly what I have been looking for!! I have been trying to decide the best method for installing a a thermowell in my 60L Speidel. Would you happen to know the part number of the thermowell you purchased? Thanks in advance.

I use one of the plastic carboy caps, a length of stainless tubing and a compression end cap. No cutting into the lid that way
