Thanks, guys.  I'm going to start taping my probe to the oustide of my glass carboy and tape insulation around it.  Also, since I don't trust the probe 100%, I'm going to tape the end of my thermometer inside the insulation.  I use this to calibrate temp adjustment, since I usually see a few degree difference between the thermostat setting and the thermometer reading.

Have you guys ever found a way to put the probe into the fermenter somehow? This seems kinda like a dumb question

Here is a link to a thermowell. You put the probe from the temp controller in the well.

The thermowells from brewers hardware are of a much higher quality, and cheaper.
