If you want to be able to read the temperature of your brew without lifting a lid, this is the answer! With the new Fermentap Weldless Thermometer, you can upgrade any existing kettle or keg to read temperature from the outside! Gone are the days of opening kettle lids to check wort or mash temperatures!

The Fermentap Weldless Thermometer has a 2 inch probe, making it ideal for use in your Hot Liquor Tank or Boil Kettle. The 2 inch stem is much shorter than our 6 inch version, making this product a better suite for vessels with immersion heat exchangers. This Weldless Thermometer will work in Kettles & Kegs! The thermometer is our Fermentap Dial Thermometer, and features a hermetically sealed face, all stainless construction, and a fast response to temperature change!

Features:

  • Thermometer with 2″ Probe and 3″ Dial Face.
  • 2″ probe is short enough to stay out of the way of Immersion Chillers or heat exchangers.
  • All Stainless Construction.
  • High Temperature Food Grade Silicone Gasket.
  • Will work great with Kettles & Kegs!
  • Requires a 1″ hole to be drilled in the vessel for installation.
  • Replaces our WL113.

Hands on Review: ProFlow Dynamics Stainless Steel Camlock Quick Disconnects

proflowdynamics homebrew camlock review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Proflow Dynamics Camlock Fittings

If I were to count all the “things” I have the most of in my homebrew collection, it would be a close race between tubing and fittings. Like the freeway system of the brewing world, we all have to get the wort/beer from one vessel to the next as we move through the brewing process. When dealing with hot liquids, that typically means silicone tubing. And when connecting tubing to your vessel or pump, there are 3 most common ways to do this: 1) Barbed fitting, 2) Quick Disconnect fitting, and 3) Camlock fitting.

Camlock QDs at ProFlow Dynamics


Proflow Dynamics has been around since 2007. They specialize in camlock fittings, but also make a variety of other fittings and ball valves. They service a mix of different industries- including the brewing industry, of course. Barbed fittings are the simplest, but are typically designed to be a very tight fit (require a lot of effort to mate), or a looser fit (require a hose clamp). Either of these situations does not lend itself well to a joint you need to connect/disconnect frequently. Quick disconnects have a slick one-handed operation, which is their main appeal. The downside is their more complicated design makes them more expensive. And more complicated designs usually mean more ways to potentially fail.

Ends Today: Weldless Brewer’s Edge Pot Thermometer – includes bulkhead…. $12.50, save 50%

Weldless Brewer's Edge® Pot Thermometer

Weldless Brewer’s Edge® Pot Thermometer via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Brewer’s Edge Weldless Thermometer takes a precision stainless steel dial thermometer, and adds a unique sliding reference pointer. Features a 3″ dial and 3″ probe. Just set the sliding red pointer to your reference point (say 154 F for mashing) and it provides quick visual reference that you are at your target temperature. Great for mash tun and sparge water tanks, although you do not really need a thermometer if you are just making malt extract beers.

Easy to Install – Unlike Weldless Pot Thermometers with loose washers and O rings, The Brewer’s Edge Weldless Thermometer features a unique recessed silicone O ring mount, for a positive seal in any pot. You only need to drill a 7/16″ hole, the smallest (and easiest to drill hole) of any weldless pot thermometer.

Features a 60� to 220�F. range, 2� calibrations, a tempered glass lens, and a resetting screw, so you can precisely adjust the thermometer for a particular temperature range. Although heat resistant, it should not be allowed to contact open flame or come near open flame, so it must be installed far enough up on your pot to avoid being licked by burner flames.


 

  • This is marked down a whopping 50% to just $12.50.
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the lower 48 states depending on your order size for most items.

Fermentap Dial Thermometer – add a thermometer to your kettle – $18.99 + free ship eligible, limited availability

Fermentap Bi-Metal Dial Thermometer (3 in Face x 2.5 in Probe)

Fermentap Dial Thermometer – 3 in. Face x 2.5 in. Probe from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

This thermometer will be a great addition to your homebrewing setup. The shorter 2.5″ probe works great in a boil kettle or hot liquor tank because it’s easier to work around. Keep in mind that some brewers feel this is too short for a mash tun and prefer a longer thermometer which reaches closer to the center of the mash. (See our MT514 for the same thermometer with a 6″ probe.)

Thermometer has an easy-to-read 3″ Face, and 1/2″ MPT threads on the back to connect to your kettle. The metal stem is durable and won’t break like glass can. Our reviewers agree that this is a great thermometer at a great price!

Standard Features:
All Stainless Construction
Fast Response to Temperature Change
Hermetically Sealed (Moisture Proof)
Within 1% Full Scale Accuracy
Easily Calibrated With a Flat Head Screwdriver
316 Stainless Steel Stem Material
Temperature range is 20-240F/0-110C. Calibration screw is 1/16th” hex nut.
