The Pub / Re: Tumwater brewery resurrection.

Thanks for the info! I grew up in Montesano and visited the Oly brewery many times with my parents. I was sad when it closed and with the resurgence of craft brews, I was surprised that it sat vacant for so long. I understand that MillerCoors had a restriction that beer could not be brewed at the facility for 10 years after they left. One more reason to not be happy with big beer.

I have experimented with both the probe on the outside and insulated and with a thermowell. Monitoring temps at the same time, they were within 1 degree. People have commented on "hot spots" during fermentation and said that the themowell should be more accurate, but I have found essentially no difference. I think the convective movement of the wort durning fermentation distributes the heat evenly.

If space is an issue, and you can't use a full sized fridge, I used a 4.4 cu. ft. all fridge unit that I got at hhgregg for about $190. It can fit under counter, and with removing the shelves on the door and replacing it with plexiglass, you can fit two corny kegs and a CO2 canister in it. That is what I did when I built my bar and have been very happy with the set up.
