    Silicone oil in thermowell

    Hello all, I have a long thermowell I will use with an Ink bird ITC-308 probe. There is some play between the probe and the thermowell wall and I was looking at thermal paste to help the probe better read the temperature. Because the thermowell is long I am not able to use the applicator that...

    Big mouth bubbler depth charge and thermowell modification

    Hello all, recently bought the big mouth bubbler with the thermowell to track fermentation and keep it warm. I’d also like to use the depth charge to dry hop in. Frustratingly the depth charge doesn’t have a stopper hole to let you slip a thermowell into. Has anyone modified the depth charge...

    Trying to find a ThermoWell for a Grainfather connect controller

    I have a grainfather connect brain but since I don’t have the full grainfather rig I dangle the probe into my mash. The probe seems to be pretty large but I was wondering if anyone knows a link to a weldless thermo well that would actually fit the GFC probe. The replacement GFC temperature probe...

    Thermowell setup for traditional carboy that lasts more than one fermentation

    I thought I was slick with my modified 6 gal carboy orange cap with a thermowell stolen from a stopper setup for a budget version of this thing after taking advice from the board, but damn I was wrong. The orange cap worked great for one 7-day primary. The next time I used it, I thought I...

    Thermowell / Inkbird 308 how to?

    Seting up my Spike conical and wondering if anyone has comments on how to control temps during fermentation. I’m thinking the manual temp gauge is removed and the digital sensor is inserted into the thermowell. Do I need to then pack the opening with some type of putty to isolate the sensor...
