Looks like an insulated temp probe to me...

Where do you get a fermenter like that?

The glass cracked so I taped it .... lol just kidding

I reused the insulated pad from the other demi (it's actually 4 generation which is why there is so much tape)and just added more painters tape. There is indeed a temp probe underneath.

After I siphon the beer out its actually only a few lbs. Rinse with the bottle washer, soak over night with oxyclean and a quick scrub with the carboy brush.

The 15 gallon Demijohns were originally used for wine. Some LHBS sell them. They come in baskets and are usually expensive.

Take a look at kijiji or craigs list and you can usually find them really cheap. I picked up the 8 I have for around $10-20 each
