My vote - 1 RTD somewhere that gets a good mix. We're homebrewing, it's not the end of the world or your mash if you are a degree or two off. If you like the idea of being more accurate at the cost of more wiring and gadgets, that's cool, but I don't think it's necessary. Plenty of folks with 1 RTD making perfectly drinkable beer...

i actually do something very similar to this for a living (i design precision controlled enclosures, for semiconductor manufacturing), achieving +/-0.005 C with a single probe is possible with a well designed system. i agree with bad news. one probe is plenty, picking the place for it is the tricky part.


more beer for me
