Q: What is the length of the thermowell's extension *below* the stopper, i.e. when the end of the ruler is placed flush with the bottom of the stopper?
A: the length of the stainless tube end to end is 15" so the overall length of the full stopper and tube is 15" in total
Q: Will this fit an Anvil 7.5 gallon bucket fermenter?
A: No. Unfortunately the thermowell stopper does not work with the Anvil bucket fermenter.
Q: does the stopper still have a blow off tube hole? I'd like to tie in an Inkstop and blow off tube in the same bung on a 5 gallon glass carboy.
A: The stopper will have a 2nd opening into the carboy for off-gassing in addition to the thermowell opening
Q: Hello AIHB, I am looking for Stopper thermowell that is only 10 inches long.
a Thermowell to be used in a 1 gallon jug.
Do you carry any SHORTER thermowells?
A: At this time the longer stopper thermowell would be the only one we source. We will keep an eye out for a vendor with shorter designs to possibly add in the future!
Q: Will this fit Speidel fermenters?
A: The speidel fermenter lids are bit wide, but can be drilled out to accomodate the #7 drilled stopper that will ship with the thermowell
Q: Will the probe from the Inkbird Dual Stage Digital Temperature Controller Item 198-1000 fit inside the Thermowell?
A: yes it will Geoff
Q: Will this fit in a 5000 ml erlenmeyer flask?
A: This is too small to fit into a standard 5000ml Erlenmeyer flasks.
Q: Is a replacement stopper available, i.e. a double whole one?
A: The stopper is only sold with the thermowell, we do not sell the stopper separately at this time.
Q: Is there a way to use this with a standard 7.9 gallon plastic fermenting bucket?
A: Yes, You would just need to make the proper modification to the lid of the bucket to accommodate either the thermowell tube it self or the bung the thermowell is attached to.
Q: Is the thermowell flared out at the top? I'd like to use this as a thermowell in my corny keg and was wondering if it would seat on top of the standard dip tube port.
A: The Thermowell is flared out on top, though it is too small for the keg port. The tube is also crimped on the bottom end and cannot fit through the port either. I do have a secondary fermenting lid available that will fit the Thermowell. Here is the link to the product.
Q: Can the thermowell be removed from the dual port stopper or do you sell a single port stopper with a thermowell?
A: Yes the thermowell can be removed, and we do not sell a single port stopper with a thermowell.
Q: will this fit the Johnson controls a419 controller probe?
Q: All my carboys us a #10 stopper. What is the # of this stopper?
A: It is very similar in size to the 6.5 stopper.
Q: Two questions. First, what is the inside diameter of the thermowell? Second, do you have one like this that will fit a Better Bottle?
A: The ID of the thermowell is 1/4" and we do not have a better bottle option at this time.
Q: I just received my thermowell and am worried because it continues to pop out and will not seat. the stc-1000 probe fits perfectly but the bung is loose. is this a problem? any solutions?
A: As long as the stopper is seated on top of your carboy then everything is good. A tip on getting it to stay in the bung hole would be to get the glass and the bung as dry as you can before inserting the bung, sometimes if the bung and the carboy are very wet it will have the tendency to pop out.
Q: Has anybody used this with a DIY STC-1000 controller? Does the probe for the STC fit this well?
A: Yes it should work as long as the STC probe is 1/4" ID or close to that.
Q: Will this fit your 6 gallon glass carboy?
Q: Does the stopper have 2 holes one for the rod and another for the air lock?
A: Yes, the additional hole in the bung is for the airlock. Our three piece air lock Item # 24-4600 fits well in this item and is recommended.
Q: Does the termowell tube come in lengths longer than 15"?
A: It does not. I am not sure there would be an advantage to a longer probe for use in a carboy.
Q: I'm reading reviews where this item doesn't fit the 6.5 gal carboys too well. Also, I saw a review that said it doen't work with the Johnson Digital (blue) controller. Any thoughts on that? Couldn't I just sanitize the the probe and wire on my controller and let the tip dangle in my brew?
A: If you put the airlock in the stopper first then place it in the carboy it fits no problem. We have found that #7 stoppers with the thermowell and airlock bulge out too much to fit in a carboy. The old models of Johnson controllers did not fit. Recently they have changed the probe and it will fit this thermowell.
