I have two Blichmann Brewmometers. Each came with the thermometer, an O Ring, a washer to go over the O Ring, and a nut. The order for installation is: Brewmometer, O Ring with Washer around the O Ring, Pot, and then Nut. The nut should be snug, but not super tight. The instructions that came with the Brewmometer have a note that says: NOTE that the o-ring goes on the OUTSIDE of the pot. Installing it on the inside of the pot will cause it to leak!!
The instructions also say that you should not use pipe tape on the weldless fitting.
I hope that this helps.
