BeerBug™ Temperature Probe
The BeerBug™ Temperature Probe gives you even more accurate data! 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.
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.
BeerBug's website does not work properly, so I cannot register my product; in order to sync with my phone. I submit three help desk tickets since Sep 16, 2016. I have not had a single response. Since I can't sync I cannot us it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
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. 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
