But my termo well is homemade from SS tube, and I am fermenting in buckets..
I just fly cut a second hole in the lif for a large stopper, froze a second stopper and machined it for the thermo well.
The down side is removing it all when it's time to remove the lid at the end of fermentation... (I do gravity checks with thief though the air lock stopper hole)
