hmm... glad to have this info as I was about to make an order to NWbrewer since I want a pump and figured i'd pony up the extra for the weldless "kits" instead of getting the parts from Mcmaster-Carr. Now I think i'll hold up and make a list of parts I really need instead.
So just to be clear you don't like the in wall thermometer (brewmometer specifically) that you have and would recomend a submersible digital probe thermometer instead? as opposed to in addition to?
sorry i've been studying for my national license exam and I am a bit caught up in semantics just now.
also if you have any recomendations for submersible digital probe thermometers that would be great. I will ask about parts for keggle conversion on another thread at another time I think.
