    The thing is. You're measuring the entire thermal mass of a body of liquid. If you can read the
    core of that mass as opposed to the outer "skin" of the liquid you will have much more
    consistent readin...

    See, now, I keep reading just the opposite--that a *WELL INSULATED* probe on carboy's outside
    wall, kept on opposite side from fridge/heater direct view, will essentially measure same as
    wort. See thi...

    The easiest way to accomplish this is to use an additional sensor that is assigned to the Room
    Temp. That way it is logged, but not used in any of the control algorithms. I intend to do this
    with my s...

    It would be really interesting and educational to see what the beer temp was, measured with a
    thermowell, during the first half of that test. I bet it was pretty flat. It would also be
    interesting to ...

    Here is a hard data proving why one should use a thermowell vs. taping to the side of a keg.
    Keep in mind I had my probe insulated while taped as well (bubble wrap, lots of it). I
    installed the thermo...

    Oh awesome thanks man! I am on mobile so exploring the options was tough. I think 18 might cut
    it, but ill definitely shoot him an email, I think 24 would be perfect.

    Yes I was thinking the same. It looks like a decent solution if only it were longer.

    Hello, I've been scouring the internet assuming somebody had done this before, but can't find
    any straightforward plans. I ferment in 10 gallon corny kegs. Currently I tape my temperature
    probe to the...

    I just had nearly the exact same scenario but with WLP007, which I think is similar to if not
    the same as 1098. I also have a similar grain bill to yours but with lower hops. My batch
    stalled at 1.03 ...

    I went down the same path as you. Eventually I gave up and pulled the I2C and built a shift
    register circuit [Look Here]Edit: Deleted accidental double post. Stupid iPhone. Sorry for the
    clutter.
