The waters been in there for about 24 hours now, so everything should be equalized. The probe is taped directly to the bottle and then covered, but I'll give it a try with a towel. Thanks for the input.
I just got a fridge and a Johnson A419 controller. I've been playing around with it tonight and doing some temp readings off of a 6 gallon better bottle filled with water with the probe taped to the side then covered with several folded sheets of paper towel for insulation. The difference...
I have the BB with and use the orange carboy caps. I just put a piece of vinyl tubing onto one of the stems that stick out of the carboy cap. I haven't had any crazy fermenting beers in there yet so the smaller diameter tubing was good. I also haven't dry hopped a vigorously fermenting beer...
I have a 60qt pot that I no longer need.
It's about 20.5" wide by 11" tall. It already has a hole drilled for a weldless bulkhead. Evaporation on my boils was about 25% per hour just to give you an idea. I was thinking $30 plus shipping costs. It's a larger item so shipping may be a...

I thought I had read to stir every 15 minutes or so, maybe thats a special case or maybe that was for a heatable mash tun. Ahh well, live and learn. The fermenter is still bubbling so at least it should be beer like liquid when it's all done.
So this weekend I did my first all grain brew.
I have a 48 quart Igloo cube cooler that I'm using for my mash tun.
I started at 153° and after 45 minutes I was down to 149°.
I preheated with 170° water, so maybe I need to go hotter or keep it in there longer.
So I guess my question is has...
