Thermowell/Thermometer Setup

I’ve been looking to move to a thermowell/carboy cap setup to more accurately monitor my fermentation tempetures. My question is, do you have to use a temp controller probe inside of a thermowell to get accurate readings, or could a similar length probe (Dial) thermometer be inserted into the termowell and get similar results??

Any feedback is appreciated.


You would be able to monitor the ferm temps with a dial thermometer, but, you would be responsible for turning the fermentation chamber on/off. The temp controller would take care of that for you.

If you go the dial thermometer route make sure you put some water in the thermowell to get a accurate reading.
