Corney keg Thermowell
« on: January 16, 2018, 05:44:48 PM »
Ok, here’s my latest project…

I’ve wanted to put a thermowell into a Corney keg to allow me to use my wireless temp controller to control the temps in my kegerator. So I picked up a couple of keg post adapters from Bobby at Brewhardware. I had a spare liquid-out post and a 16″ thermowell.



I took the liquid-out post, and drilled it out to accommodate my digital thermometer probe…



I took one of my corney keg lids, drilled a 1/2″ hole,



and carefully ground the opening until the post just fit,



and silver-soldered the post…



another view…



I just put a standard o-ring on the thermowell, insert it into the modified post, and insert my digital thermometer probe.

If and when I make another one, I’m going to move the post more to the center of the lid.
