Is there a thermowell and stopper/grommet that will work with the 6.5 gallon buckets? I want to use temperature control but haven’t found anything that would fit this lid. Would I have to just DIY it?
I’ve always just used. the stick on "fermometer’
Also, I find my fermenter gets about 5*F above its surrounding environment, once fermenting is under way…
There is debate whether a thermowell is better for temperature measurement or just taping the probe to the side of the fermenter and insulating it is better. I tape mine to the side and use a temp controller and heater mat that controls the temps.
You should be able to DIY something to suit your needs whichever way you choose to go.
Thanks all for the input
