I have mine in a standup freezer with a Ranco controller. I bought a thermowell from brewers hardware. This setup is the best thing I have done for my brewing.

I get dead on ferm temps, can cold crash with ease and can lager if I desire. Plus it is efficient only having to maintain temps in the freezer takes minimum energy. Love it!

got a link to the thermowell that you're using? Are you using it thru the top "blowoff" port?

Yeah. I got a 1" "T" that they also carry, thermowell goes on top, blow off out the side. Perfect.

I ordered mine today with the drop in chiller. Now I need to figure out what all I need to buy for it.

What goodies are you all using with yours?

For mine, first of all I bought a stand up freezer which is funny because it cost me a lot more than my fermentor did. 1" buttlerfly valve for the sample/racking port. 1.5" butterfly for a dump valve. 1" sanitary T so I can put my 20" thermowell sown into it and a 3/4" barb fitting for a blow off tube.

Celtic,

If using a controller on the stand up freezer, could you avoid the thermowell. I realize the heat from the yeast doing their business would generate a few degrees more, but you could avoid all the addition stainless.

The only reason I ask is because my wife is looking for our 5yr anniv gift. I am seriously considering brewhemoth with ball valves and chiller. I just completed a new ebrewery with stainless 3-pieces so I'm going to avoid tri's on dump and rack.

Sure. You can tape the probe to the side and then tape some insulation over that. I just like having the probe right in the heart of it. But for sure no problems if you do as mentioned above.

so now with that 20" thermowell you're using do you just stuff the temp prob from your controller inside the thermowell and call it good?

Default Brewhemuth arrived!

It's a thing of beauty. Fantastic welds. Legs are sturdier than I expected but I'll add some cross bracing to be extra sure.

Pics to follow.
