DetailsThe ThruMometer™ from Blichmann Engineering™ is the first in-line thermometer. It's the ideal for monitoring wort temperature as it goes from your counterflow wort chiller to your fermentation vessel. Conceived especially for brewing, all interior surfaces of this thermometer are mirror-smooth, so there is nowhere for bacteria to hide, and it is easy to sanitize. Quick responding, the ThruMometer™ thermometer responds at the rate of 1 degree per second. Accurate to within 1 degree. Never needs calibrating. Used with any counterflow wort chiller (cannot be used with immersion chillers), the ThruMometer will help you avoid over-chilling your wort, and save water. Constructed of heat-treated corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, will last a lifetime! Tubing with an inner diameter of 3/8 inches will fit the thrumometer.

4.2 / 5.025 Reviewsplate chilleri use this in line with my shirron wort chiller works greatJune 4, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoThe best available toolIts a must own with a plate chiller to know what your wort temperature is. Its accurate enough and fast enough for how it's used. And its easy to take care of, just clean right after using and then pump PBW through it when cleaning up.March 22, 2014Helps me when adjusting plate chiller temperaturesWith winter water i can over cool my wort if I use the full tap pressure. I use the Thrumometer to let me know the adjusted temperature so I get my wort down to exactly the right pitching temperature. It's pretty accurate too, within a degree or so.January 26, 2014Thermometer for your wortIts pretty good and there is nothing else, so I'm content with it. If you change the flow rate and that causes the temperature to fluctuate by a large amount, it will take the Thrumemoter a while to adjust. But a few degrees are much faster.December 19, 2013Its a little slow but it's still usableI'd like it to react faster, but it still is useful. The only 2 alternatives are to either buy some very expensive lab equipment or save the wort in a container and measure it with a Thermapen. If this was faster I'd give another star.October 20, 2013Gives a good approximationIt gives me a good approximation of the water temperature. It takes a while to react to change so you may be chasing a temperature by altering the flow rate of the input water to your chiller. I know of no better device for measuring the flow temperature outside of a laboratory,September 10, 2013The best alternativeWhen I switched to a plate chiller I had no easy and convenient way of measuring the wort temperature coming out of the chiller. This is the best equipment I've found. Its reasonably accurate, and since the temperature wont fluctuate too much it responds fast enough. There are more expensive thermometers that are attached to valves, but I didn't think it was worth it.August 16, 2013Helps me outI know of no other way to know what temperature my wort is going from my kettle to my fermentor. This is an easy way to find out, and while the response time isn't instant, its ok. A ThermaPen equivalent would be nicer but it doesn't exist._x000D_The Thrumometer is the best tool I could find for the task.July 22, 2013Used with my Counterflow chillerI use this to adjust the water flow rate so I dont make my wort too cold. It take 10 seconds to react to a temperature change, and can be off a couple of degrees, which is ok for pitching.May 31, 2013Needed if you have a plate chillerI use this in conjunction with the Therminator plate chiller. It is true that it gives you an approximate temp and not precise. My purpose in using it is to regulate the flow rate of my chill water to the lowest possible rate for an acceptable fermentation temp. I recover my waste hot water in my HLT to use in cleanup. This device helps me optimize the amount of water I use to chill._x000D__x000D_ On the downside there are no barbs on the ends. This is usually OK but not if you accidentally run hot wort through it -- the hose can quickly expand and disconnect -- I have lost precious wort and had a hot mess on my hands! I guess the tradeoff is better sanitation...April 18, 2013
