It's a tube that's sealed on one end, and allows temperature probes to be inserted so that beer temp can be...

Bottom line -- just wait it out til...

Generally, no, you don't need to seal the hole, however it depends on the size of the probe. It's easy enough to just put some tape over it to make sure no cold air gets in, but I doubt it'd be a...

Ah jeez, that's a hell of a tough question. I definitely enjoy the Brew Bucket, so it's really hard to say. If their prices were radically different, I'd say the Bucket would be worth it, but seeing...

You just added $94 there, and likely $50 to the actual product price. Keep in mind the price point here. Thing is, what is the butterfly valve going to offer that the ball valve cannot, in terms of...

It's easy to fix the issue with electric stoves. Get some heavy duty aluminum foil, and form a square with it, about 3-4 layers thick. Then place that between the flask and the actual burner. It...

They claim that they are ETCHED on. But they sure don't seem to be, at least from what I can tell. Otherwise it'd be a rough surface, but it seems smooth. I wonder if they did electrical "etching".

Unfortunately I don't think there's any sure-fire guarantee of getting a 1.0 with any specific vendor.

For example, atoughram has had no 1.1's from his vendor, but on the other hand, I ordered all...

First off don't buy the knockoff. Second, I think the R2 should work, as long as it has the same pin configuaration. You need access to pinholes 3, 8, 9, 5V, and GND.
