Hello, once again I have spent the past several minutes researching for my hombrew stuff, this it is for thermowells that work with the Ranco ETC 111000 stock temperature probe. I was kind of shocked to find out how expensive these things are, knowing that I am going to need two because I just recently setup two water chilled fermentation units. I am still fermenting in a 6 gallon primary plastic and 5 gallon secondary glass carboys.
So, the first thermowell I came across was the one morebeer.com was selling. Here is the link @ $25 + shipping I thought I could find a better price or a DIY. I am not even sure if this thermowell is going to fit the stock temp probe on a Ranco ETC 111000
I then came across a site selling what appeared to be the same item for $22.00 Here is the link
Thirdly, I came across a thermwowell that is suppose to work with the Ranco ETC 111000 temp control unit, put this does not include the rubber stopper.
Here is the link @ $14 + shipping
I am probably going to end up getting two of the last one mentioned, but does anyone know of a DIY that's cheaper than $14 and uses SS? At $14 + shipping this seems like a reasonable price compared to the others.
Final question, if I purchase the last item should I drill holes in the rubber stoppers I have (I recently picked up two hole free rubber stoppers) or should I purchase some stoppers that are predrilled? to fit the thermowell and an airlocker?
