thermometer with 3" diameter face shows termeprature in both
Farenheit and Celcius scales. The 1/2" NPT thread on back side of
thermometer requires a 1/2 NPT coupling or a Thru Wall Fitting to
be installed into your pot.
10/24/2016 – How far from the heat source should the thermometer be placed? (closer to the bottom, the middle or the top)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Most people like to place them in the middle, or slightly lower in case you make a smaller batch at some point in time. This seems like a good compromise.
8/27/2014 – How high does the thermometer read?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Up to 220 deg F
3/23/2014 – Is this thermometer calibrated?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is pretty darn close, but it is not calibrated to NIST standards if that is what you mean. It IS very easy to calibrate yourself, however. There is an adjustment screw on the back side of the face. Simply put into boiling water (212 deg F) and also in ice water (32 deg F) and adjust if/as necessary.
8/22/2012 – For use with the 8 gallon stainless brewpot with spigot, is there advantage/disadvantage between the 2 inch versus the 6 inch stem on the stainless brew thermometer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Stem length is entirely a matter of personal preference.A short stem is just fine for most applications, especially extract based brews. It doesn't get bumped by the brewing spoon so much. There are a few brewers (mostly all grain types) who want to measure the temperature further into their grain bed. The tradeoff here is that the longer stem gets bumped easily when stirring.
8/19/2012 – I am looking at your 8 gallon stainless brewpot with spigot. Is there advantage/disadvantage regarding the stainless vs brass options? Also can you also install a thermometer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The stainless vs brass option refers to the spigot.Functionally, there is no difference. They work the same.Many people (including breweries) prefer stainless steel because it is tough (durable) and impervious to chemical attack. The drawback is the cost. Brass spigots are less so, and fit more budgets!Yes, we can easily install a thermometer into your pot. It will require the purchase of a Thru-Wall Fitting as well as the thermometer, of course. We do the installation for free on this pot. See associated products below.

4/25/2007 – What is the correct equation for determining A.B.V. (alcohol by volume). Do you divide the difference between starting and ending gravity by 8 or by 7.36? I see both numbers in the answers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: By taking the difference between your starting and ending gravity (in points) you then divide by 7.63 That will get you very close indeed.For example, The OG measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a FG measurement of 1.018. The difference is 62 "points". 62 divided by 7.63 = 8.12% acohol by volume.Another way is to measure is shown below:The OG measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a FG measurement of 1.018. Simply subtract the FG from the OG and multiply by 131.1.080 - 1.018 = 0.062 x 131 = 8.12% alcohol by volumeI see no need to calculate any closer than that!Let's do it for a wine (same principle):OG=1.090FG=1.000=0.090*131=11.79% Alcohol by Volume (ABV)
11/5/2006 – I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
