Description

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!

Great thermo - this one too short for MT
These are great thermometers. Easy to adjust (but a little too easy to mess up - don't turn it by the "face" when installing). They also do not come with an allen-wrench to adjust and the one you need is very small. You should also purchase one of morebeer's spirits based thermos to use as a calibration tool for this thermo.

The only thing I'd caution about this one in particular is the probe length. It's too short for a mashtun. I was getting a lot of temperature drop over an hour because it wasn't penetrating deep enough into the mash. A 6" prob solved that and my mash temps are now solid.

Cheers!

nice
i have this connected to my counterflow with a tee fitting, it is easy to read the temp of the chilled wort as it exits.

Must have...
Bought this to use with the kettle in starter kit #4 as per most everyone else's reviews. Glad I did. It's the perfect size to use with the wort chiller. Numbers are easy to read, and seems to respond pretty much instantly.

Got some condensation inside right away
Right away it got a little foggy right around mashing temps, and it's been that way ever since. Otherwise pretty reliable. Just takes some effort to read it.

Easy to read
Very easy to read and accurate thermometer. I used this on my 8 gallon stainless steel brew pot. They only gripe I have is that it's not vertical when I thread it on the weldless fitting but that is just where the threads are on the pot. Not a big deal but works great.

A nice replacement thermometer
This is a nice replacement thermometer which works well and doesn't cost you more than it should. You won't be disappointed that you didn't spend a lot more.

Not bad, but not great.
Slow to respond. Mine was off initially, but was ok after calibration. My only gripe is condensation inside the glass, after my first test boil it's never gone away. Makes it hard to get an exact reading at times.

Nice large dial, easy to read, fast response.
Bought this to put on the output of my plate chiller. works very well, and I can easily read the temp. Responds to changes in temp. very quickly. Seems well built. Nice that is can be adjusted.

Better than a steam bath from close watching...
Watch your temps from several feet away while chilling with friends and drinking a homebrew. Very easy to calibrate with a small screwdriver. Ditch the glass stem thermometer, and add one of these to your kettle today!

Great Thermometer
This is my favorite brew thermometer - been using it for two years now, and still accurate to within 1 degree. Never had an issue with liquid splashing on it, and the probe is the perfect length for my boil kettle. To top it off, price can't be beat!
