Well? How did this last batch compare?
I hadn't thought to try and clone this, but I do enjoy it.
The only way I get it is to take the one hour trip over to Wisconsin. Sorry to say the don't distribute to MN.
I wonder if the OP is ever coming back to this thread, or brewing for that matter.......
Best I can tell, he was last here on sept. 11th.
He did say he was busy with life.
I'll just be patient and wait for his results.
I thought the same thing but didn't really look to close. If that's the case you can get one of these on eBay for $11-$12 with free shipping. I ordered one the other day.
That site is a good source for replacement thermistors though.
Your home made thermowell looks great. Here is a link to some probes that should work to replace the one that came with it. Not all on this page will work. The ones labeled 10K ohm would be the ones your looking for as far as I can tell.
