To me, it tends to taste harsh. Like the ingredients haven't fully integrated yet. Sort of like a soup or stew...they might taste good the first day but they always taste better the second day.

I have some bubble wrap that is folded over a few times and taped (on three sides) to the side of the fermenter. I don't tape the top side so it forms a little pocket and I slide the probe in there.

I was trying to pressurize it at 12psi. I'll give it a shot at 30 and see what happens. O-rings were already lubed.

New lid has been ordered.
