Description  more details

Do you want to monitor the temperature of your 5 or 10 gallon Igloo or Rubbermaid (and Home Depot) cooler while you are mashing or storing sparge water? The Coolview™ thermometer from Brewer's Edge®, features a cooler-specific 100° to 200° F. Range, and a sliding red reference pointer so you can set it at mash or sparge water temperature. The 2" dial features a calibration nut for fine tuning the temperature if desired, as well as a unique 1 3/4" long threaded stainless barrel that is 5/16" thick, so it can be installed in thick cooler walls by just drilling a 5/16" hole. Click on the More Info link above to see a photo of the back of this thermometer.

To prevent leaks into the cooler wall foam insulation, a specially designed mounting nut features a machined recess to hold a small silicone O ring. This recess holds the O ring tight in the nut when you tighten the backnut, preventing it from spreading and causing leaks. A great aid if you have a cooler mashtun or sparge water tank.

Click   here to view Coolview installation instructions.

This shows the back of the Coolview, with its overall 3 3/4" length and backnut with silicone O ring. To adjust the calibration, the nut at the base of the stem is turned with a small wrench. Installs in any 5 or 10 gallon insulated cooler once you drill a 5/16" hole.

dont waist your money
does not work as advertised. Constantly out of calibration, by 10+ degrees. Junk. You've been warned. I've calibrated this thing 3 times now with multiple thermometers and still 10 degrees off.

pros and cons
PROS: Easy to install, doesn't leak, and pretty accurate once calibrated. CONS: Doesn't indicate up to 212F, so cannot calibrate using boiling water. Must use a reference thermometer. Doesn't have calibration screw on the back of the dial, but rather you move the face relative to a nut at the base of the stem; problem is it's easy to knock out of cal when you install (as I did). You can avoid this by gripping only by the nut at the base of the stem, except you must have a very thin 11mm wrench to access, as there's only 1/8" space between cooler wall and dial; a typical thickness wrench like from Home Depot won't work. Having thin wrench is also critical to calibrating once installed. A suitable wrench should be included, as I'm have to spen $20 more mailordering one now.

Update of Original Post on 11 / 4 / 13
Just got the rest of my gear and was able to finally install this sweet little Thermo and noticed 1 small issue with it. when I initally drilled the 5/16" hole in my 10 gal Rubbermaid, I was apparently a little off and drilled the hole ever so slightly out of square.... mabey only 1 - 2 deg. but it was enough to cause the O-ring not to completely seat aginst the wall of the cooler and cause a leak...not large mind you, only 1.5 oz. an hour. The fix was simple enough though. I just ran the very end of the bit (about only 1/4")into the outside of the hole and slotted it ever so slightly downwards as to bring the outter hole square with the interior hole. Installed the thermo again, filled the cooler back up to 10 gallons, and its been sitting 2 hours now and no leaks. Definately going to get another one when I get my HLY cooler. Just BE SURE that when you drill your hole, it's SQUARE w/ the cooler.... not chanted or at an angled.
