hey seven, I almost mentioned that some people remove it. Until I moved to 10 gallon batches, the wort didn't even touch the thermometer so it was pretty much useless lol. Now that I do larger batches, it is nice to see the temp during the mash and while cooling.
How did you go about sealing up the hole in case I ever decide to remove mine?
