Subject pretty much says it all. Just got a couple of STC-1000s from eBay (I bought this one: this one FWIW). Going to put the probe in a water-filled container in my keezer but not sure where to source an appropriately sized thermowell. Probe tip is about 6.1mm at it's widest.

Thanks,
Eric

I use this store since it is local to me with decent prices.

I have a STC-1000 for my fermentation chest freezer and the probe fits well in there.

STC-1000 first showed up as "Aquarium temp controller".
The probe is water proof,so if not going into any wort.You can use it "AS IS".

@HDIr0n - Regarding Mainland Valve & Fitting -- I've purchased all of my SS fitting from them. Great company to work with!

Not sure if he probe can fit in the thermowell and I could be way off cause i never used or even seen a TW in person but possibly you can put some water in the thermowell and if the probe fits into it the water in the TW will become around the same as the wort and give you an accurate temp..correct me if im wrong on how tw works

If you really want to use a thermowell, you can get a replacement probe. Supposedly they are are using a NTC 10KOhm @ 25C, 3435 Beta probe. http://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/vi...p?f=23&t=20318

You can get a replacement probe that can slide into a >5mm thermowell pretty easily. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3m-NTC-10K-1...item3ccc9f9396

I've been using the thermowells from StainlessBrewing.com 1/2" OD SS tube with a compression cap on the end. Goes directly in the wort.
