Blichmann ThruMometer™ Thermometer - 1/2" Tube
In-line thermometer for measuring the temperature of your wort outflow from a counterflow chiller.
The Thrumometer™ allows you to adjust the wort and / or water flow rates in your counterflow heat exchanger to dial in the exact wort temperature your specific yeast culture requires, with no more guesswork!
The interior of this thermometer is mirror smooth, providing no places for bacteria to hide.
This thermometer responds very quickly (1°F per second), has 1°F precision, and 0.5°F accuracy. It never needs calibrating. If you use a highly-efficient counterflow wort chiller, the Thrumometer™ will help you avoid over-chilling your wort, and will save water.
This instrument is made from a heat-treated highly corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy that will last a lifetime!
Note: Requires 1/2" ID tubing. Should not be used with liquids exceeding 140°F.

Use this in conjunction with the Blichmann chill block, and took 10 gallons of wort down to < 80 degrees in one pass. We live in Wisconsin, so the water is relatively cold. Very easy to read.
This works great with the Therminator. So well, in fact, that the unit is almost useless without it. The Thrumometer reads temp very quickly, making it easy to adjust wort flow rate as you collect. Without it you're pretty much guessing. In my opinion this should be included with the Therminator, at least as a bundle.
