This in-line thermometer is designed to connect to the end of your chiller's out hose, and the wort passes "Thru" its highly-conductive aluminium body, giving you a swift and accurate temperature reading on its liquid crystal thermometer in either Celsius or Fahrenheit. You can then adjust the flow rate on your wort pump and cold water inlet, dialing in your wort's temperature accurate to half a degree C. Available to fit both 1/2" and 3/8" ID tubing, the ThruMometer™ has machined barbs for a snug fit, and an entirely smooth, mirror-like interior leaving no place for bacteria to hide.
If your wort at pitching is too cold, it can result in long lag-times and opportunity for infection. Too hot, and off-flavours such as DMS can form, and your yeast can be damaged or killed off entirely.
The Blichmann ThruMometer™ takes the guesswork out of wort cooling, giving you an exact reading on your wort temperature as it passes through your cooling system.
