Default Corny Keg Thermowell

For those that ferment in Corny kegs with a fermentation chamber I thought i would share my latest DIY.

TIG welded the end shut on a spare dip tube and popped the poppit out of an extra plug i had. now when i ferment i take out the dip tube, insert my new thermowell, and put the temperature probe through the plug and into the keg itself!

Thats a great idea...its just one of those things that I should have thought of a long time ago. Do you happen to know of any sources of extra dip tubes?

A lot of different sites carry them... you might try adventures in home brewing (I dont know what sites i can mention)

I should also mention i cut the tube down to 14 inches
