I want to add a thermometer to the pot I use to heat up mash/sparge water so that I can hit those temps better. Where have you found to be the best price?

thanks

Hell, if it wouldn't leave a hole in all of my brewpots, I'd give you mine for nothing. I think they're junk.

Cheap digital thermo from Target gets the job done without cutting any holes. They even have water proof models.

I have a Brewmometer on all three of my pots. I bought the weldless versions from Northern Brewer and found they had the best price when shipping was factored in.

Unlike the posts above, I really like them. They are accurate and can be calibrated.

Bernie,
Why are they junk for you? What problems have you had with them?

I have three and they all stick. When I am raising temps for a step mash, or mashout, or whatever, that damned needle won't budge at all, and then it lets go and I find out that I've overshot my temp by around 20 degrees or so. Tapping on the thermometer helps a little bit, but I don't completely trust them.

This is crappy to find out, I just bought 2 and are not even installed yet.

P.S. rebel brewer has free shipping on all blichman products including these, so you can at least save on the shipping.
