1/2" NPT threaded thermowell w/ a 1/2" NPT nut and o-ring. I siliconed the temp sensor directly into the thermowell after wrapping the electrical connections in shrink tubing.

Well, I came in short on my pre-boil gravity so I sparged a bit to much to compensate and am now in the middle of a 2 hr boil to get my volume/OG correct. It's a blessing and a curse to have a...

Brewing this as we speak. Slow day at the office so I left 30 minutes early to come home and fit in a weeknight brew.

I highly doubt the stream over 12" above the liquid is 150F in an atmospheric pressure.

Yes. I would also re-aerate the unfinished wort a little bit to help the yeast along. (Shake the carboy a minute)

My smartass comment probably doesn't build my credibility much, but I brew lagers over 50% of the time. Pitching at 65 and fermenting at 52 is to hot. I always pitch at 45-48 and ferment at 48-50. I...
