How are most people here measuring their fermetation temperature?

How are you fermenting?

One needs to find what works for oneself and be happy with that. For us it's all about compromise.

When using buckets I'd simply stick it in at various distances from the rim. I was quite surprised how much variation there was.

Since I've been using micro ZKG's the sample valve will do.

You're gonna do a lot of trips to that lab to establish what works for you. Considering the beer debt and fuel costs for the trips, you might just as well get the meter and be done ;)

I suspect you think she's really cute so you hold off on that purchase :P

Each to their own!

Just hang in there and keep chipping away at it. Failure only happens once one gives up.

My new aeration and propagation setup. Had the fermentser for a while, but being able to recirculate in the fermenter via a venturi tube helps immensely.

I'm also beginning to use that fermenter for propagating yeast. It's ideal since I can easily oxygenate and keep it on the move, with the added bonus of complete temperature control at the same time.

Cheers m8

I'd still get the DO meter.

Du kannst immer noch so tun als ob Du keinen hast :D

I'm not sure if anyone else here has mentioned it yet.. but putting a small circulation fan in the ferment chamber made it less critical where I put the temp probe, either thermowell or taped and insulated. Also reduced the compressor cycling.
