Bolt in thermometer.....
« on: December 03, 2010, 07:12:15 PM »
For a brew kettle, water kettle or lauter/mash tun....

I've seen the ones on the Gucci/Fendi brew stuf sites. $60 + if you order WITH your $700 tub. Ain't happening. So, where does one find a nice cheap but reasonably accurate thermometer I can mount on a kettle, cooler.... etc.

Austin Brewing Supply has a non-Bichmann bolt-in thermometer

but you still need a bulkhead for it, which puts the total price back up close to the Blichmann version.
I haven't seen a bolt-in thermometer configuration that's less than $35-$40.
