Product Details
The BeerBug is designed as an all-in-one digital hydrometer and temperature sensor, but its temperature measurements are limited by the fact that the readings come from directly below the BeerBug and not inside your fermenting wort.

Connecting the BeerBug Temperature Probe allows you to collect temperature data from directly inside your wort, giving you the most accurate readings in real-time possible. We highly recommend this product if the ultimate goal is precise data collection and monitoring.

I love this thing.
I have it hooked up to my 14 gallon fermentor and been obsessively watching the ABV go up. My fermenter has two places to drop a temperature probe, in the middle on the side, and on top. I have the beer bug on the side and another on top (to do temperature control), and the beer bug one is always a couple degrees lower in temperature, but I'm going to assume that's more true than the guy on top (which is next to the chilling element). Instructions could be e bit better with setup, but figured it out eventually.

Great idea, had to return.
Great idea, had to return. Not enough info on website for setting up to use. Husband said too complicated and technical. He was not sure our computer and wifi could handle it. I was very disappointed, it was a Christmas present

Not to be in the primary, since 'not inside your fermenting wort' so after fermentation use this? How many wires? I see a plastic splice? What type of sensor is doing hydrometer sensing?
M I on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My understanding is that the SG-sensing BeerBug unit, that is mounted on the fermentor lid, has a built-in temperature sensor, but this is only in contact with air/CO2 above the wort. The BeerBug has a USB micro port for the optional T-probe that is suspended in the liquid wort. Manufacturer suggests somewhat more precise (reliable?) temperature tracking with the attached T-probe.

The hydrometer is attached by a monofilament to a strain gauge (the blade?) in the BeerBug, to sense the depth of the hydrometer tube that's floating in the wort.

Helpful?

I have the big mouth bubbler, glass not plastic, is there a special stopper or lid I'll need so I can use the temperature probe with an air lock?
L C on Nov 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No special stopper is required. The big mouth bubblers take a small universal carboy bung and that will work with the beer bug with or without the temp probe. Cheers! James J.
