I have 1/2" SS bulkheads, so I'm kinda stuck needing a 1/2" NPT thermowell. The only one I found on Auberin's was $26. I'm sure I can build one for much cheaper than that.
I'm ordering thermistors to build thermowells for my keezer, fermenatrix, and MLT, so another one for the boil kettle won't add any shipping. I just need to find the thermowell that will work.
Looks like a two pack of these might be the way to go.
Chiller coil/fittings aren't designed yet. I'm trying to fit the chiller and pump in a bucket, ala JKarp's setup. I want QD's on both beer and chiller lines, and I'm not sure where I want the temp probes.
CFC in is going to be within a degree or so of the BK out, so I don't know whether the probe is going in the CFC chill water in, or somewhere else. Is there any use monitoring the CFC water? Will it be something that becomes a 'that's nice. but why does it need to be tracked?"
