Agreed. I got confused one day on the PID v PID w/SRR v w/contact... I called them up, said it was for beer, and the guy basically said "dude, this is what you want"...

Auberin's lists the supply voltage as 85~264VAC/50~60Hz. Can you elaborate on what you mean by "don't like high voltage"?

True, but it would be nice to unplug the MT probe and plug in the HLT probe so I can monitor both w/o actually removing the probe.

That looks like a good deal ($25.43), except if you want to buy an extra probe to go with it. The probe costs MORE than the entire device (which includes a probe for $25.98)?!! What's up with that?...

Well, I ended up pitching the cultured yeast rather than the WLP400 - just because I felt like being adventurous. That was seven days ago. I went to keg it tonight and, to my surprise, there was...
