Product Details

The BrewMometer has a unique patent pending dialface that guides the brewer through the brewing process, helping to improve quality and consistency. The hermetically sealed glass face ensures a long life. The BrewMometer features a large 3" diameter dial with low parallax stepped face, a fine pointer, crisp large lettering, and a custom made temperature range.

The weldless model comes with an integral bulkhead for easy, weld-free installation in a stainless steel kettle. The patent pending weldless design forms a super rigid water-tight seal. Unlike other weldless thermometer options, this will not "wiggle" in the pot or leak. Requires a 1/2" diameter hole for installation.

Great upgrade to my brew pot
Having had leak issues with other weld less items I was a bit skeptical. But this worked like a charm. You have to make sure you follow the directions (RTFM). My last mash went great because I could see what the temp of my mash was at each stage of the process. I used a digital thermometer to ensure this was calibrated and it read the exact same temp!

Poor Perfromance. Look for another brand
I purchased this for my mash tun since it is a Blichmann which is known for their quality. [As an FYI I also purchased two others from a lesser known brand for my liquor tank and boil kettle]. I calibrated as instructed and used for 2 batches. Both times I noticed the temperature changes for the Blichmann were erratic and slow causing me to overheat the mash. Both batches did not come out tasting as I expected. Before using it on a third batch I purchased a hand held digital which I used along with an analog thermometer that has always been accurate. During this batch I compared the 3 thermometers during a 3 stage mash. The analog and digital thermometers read to within one degree of the other throughout the mash with the expected slight delay from the analog; while the Blichmann was way behind needing around 10 mins to catch up. I contacted Blichmann and after some discussion they were agreeable to send me a new one. The new one performed the same. I have since removed it, and had to plug the hole since this thermometer requires a larger hole than others. Since the other two thermometers from the lesser known brand are working accurately I purchased a third to fit on to my mash tun and it is spot onÉand a bonusÉcost less. I know that most of the reviews are satisfied customers. However I feel very confident I did everything I could to give this product the opportunity to operate correctly. Even if it is a matter of me just being unlucky enough to get two bad ones from a Òbad batchÓ then there are at least quality issues that need addressed. Either way I would not recommend this product, especially when you are paying more for the name and there are better products out there at lower costs.

Great addition at a reasonable price
I have only used this a couple of times, but it had been great thus far. Thoroughly recommend using the Milwaukee #1 step bit to drill hole. No wobble and accurate temps.

Great thermometer - easy to install
Accurate and easy to install, exactly what I was looking for to build my HLT.

my favorite upgrade!
easy to install! made brew day easier (dont have to look for thermometer) made my 60 dollar pot look like it cost 300! definitely worth the money!

Really Nice
Easy to read, accurrate, and the stem stays out of the way. I bought a second one for my MLT. Unlike the weldless ball valves it doesn't wobble when installed.

Worth the investment
I added one of these to my Mash Tun about 10 brews ago, and it has performed like a champ. Installation was easy (you definitely want to use the step bit to get a perfect hole) and it has maintained an accurate temperature. I like it enough that I'm going to plug the 7/8" hole that housed the thermometer that came with my Kettle and install another Brewmometer above it.

Simply great
I have one of these installed on my kettle and it works as perfectly as you'd think.I tested the calibration at a few different temperatures with some equipment at work. It was about .5F high. No big deal.They give you a few warnings. You are not supposed to have sudden temperature changes on the dial face, for example using an ice bath to cool. So if you do not have a chiller of some sort, don't bother. They warn in general not to get cold water on the dial and to let the unit cool down slowly. They also warn about flame ups and making sure it is placed high enough in the kettle, away from the heat.They claim to have a design to prevent clouding, and I would say that is mostly true. I had very slight clouding (hardly noticeable), but it was likely from the cold wind blowing that day. It went away when I was doing the full boil.The dial markings are a nice plus. It's very large and easy to read.

Accurate and easy to put attach/assemble
I drilled the hole and de-burred it. Then assembled the thermometer and went through a "dry" run checking for leaks and accuracy. It was by far the most accurate thermometer I have and there were no leaks. Tomorrow is brew day and it will go through the full trial tomorrow.

Great product
I purchased this temp. gauge to install in my inexpensive department store aluminum kettle. I have had no problems with leaks. Just don't tighten the fittings too tight and you will be fine. I also installed it a little lower then recommended. But oh ave had no problems with the dial overheating. I also checked the calibration with an industrial device and it was spot on. I plan on up grading to a better quality stainless steel kettle in the future. I will be reinstalling it in the new kettle along with my s/s bulkhead valve.

How often should these types of thermometers be removed for cleaning? Every brew?
A shopper on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can usually clean them in place as long as they are in the mash or boil kettle, since the boil will kill everything. I take mine out and clean them and the area around the holes every few brews, but there isn't much schmoo to clean. If you have it installed in your fermenter then you should take it out and clean it every time.
Will this work in an igloo? Want to install one in my mash tun.
M A on Dec 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not really, the wall of the cooler would be too thick. If you had a way to drill a larger hole and install a bulkhead or valve of some sort it might work. Otherwise, you could just put a probe thermometer in your mash
How long is the stem and is it available in different lengths?
C S on Nov 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The stem itself is about two inches, if you include the threaded part and the nut, the Weldless Bremometer could poke nearly two and a half inches into your vessel. That's the only length I've seen.
Will this work in the MegaPots? Specifically the 8 Gallon model.
R O on Sep 7, 2016

The Weldless Brewmometer can work with the Megapots if you drill the hole yourself. This thermometer has a different size thread than the one that we use with the Megapots and requires a smaller opening. The hole size needed for this thermometer is 1/2" and the holes we punch in the Megapots when you buy them with a thermometer is 7/8".
