Does it include mounting hardware?
David Simmons on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This thermometer does not include mounting hardware. It has 1/2" male pipe thread behind the face, making it ready to be installed on a kettle with a 1/2" female pipe thread port, or it can be installed using the 1/2" MPT x 1/2" MPT stainless bulkhead (H727). The thermometer and bulkhead can also be purchased as a set (WL313).

I thought it would of came with some type of washers, it did not. I could not get it to fit on my Ss kettle. Lesson learned, do not use inferior product on quality product to try and save some money. Now I am stuck with this item because it will cost me almost what it is worth to ship it back just to be credited.

Response from MoreFlavor
Thank you for the review, Roger! This thermometer does not come with any washers or o-rings. If you're experiencing leaks, we always recommend using some Teflon tape around the threads to create a tighter seal.

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!
