DetailsThe floating thermometer is especially convenient for the all-grain brewer. This thermometer will float in the mash, giving the brewer tight control over the mash temperature. You'll get quick and accurate measurements with this unit. It is an alcohol thermometer and the ballast weight is made of steel, so there is no need to worry about toxic materials.

3.4 / 5.031 ReviewsGood for all grainI have a digital thermomerter and switched to all grain brewing. This Floating thermometer is great because I don't have to keep pulling it out. I can just leave it in.July 26, 2012As Described ~ Good for the MoneyIt is exactly as described,, glass, so it is fragile, but I like glass, just be careful. It is also very large which I also find as a benefit, but may be too big for your pot.April 18, 2013Great thermometer, wish I hadn't broke itI love the way it floated. Easy to read. Unfortunately I dropped it and the weighted end, which makes it float upright, made it crash OT the patio where it broke.January 27, 2016Good ButThis is a good product in theory but they do on occasion break.April 17, 2013thermometerI used this in my mash tun. It floats, so you don't have to go swimming for it. Accurate readings and well made.April 30, 2013This did its job for a while - for me it was useful to check the temperature of wort as its cooling down. BUT it does not come with a protective case and it broke during moving/storage. I want something like it that is less fragile.April 17, 2017thermometerThis thermometer is accurate and does float. The rubber gasket is difficult to take on and off to clean. Also, i need the option for a safety case to prevent the thermometer from breaking in the pot.January 7, 2017Purchased
1 year agoBetter used with a deeper brewpot.I have a five gallon brew pot and this doesn't really float so much as rest on the bottom and then lean off to the side. With that being said, it would be much better with a larger capacity brew pot vs what I have. The temperature is accurate. I gauged this by putting this in and also having a thermometer attached to the side of the pot. Temperatures were within a few degrees of each other. I honestly would not buy this if you have a five gallon brew pot and buy one that attaches to the side. Go for it though if you have a bigger pot.March 28, 2013It's ok, but it's not greatGood thermometer for brewing, however, in a 5 gallon pot, it touches the bottom (doesn't really float), and it's very FRAGILE (which must be Italian)....easy to clean and sanitize, but will not bounce off the floor.March 31, 2013

fermenter?BEST ANSWER: Bruce,
Yes, I suppose you could. Seems it would be impossible to read with the fermentation process going on. If it is your intention to monitor ferment temperature within the vessels I would suggest purchasing the "stick on" type of indicator available at your favorite home brew supply store.
