Have you guys ever taken apart your BM? I was having terrible readings with my inline dial thermometer so I decided to unscrew it and try to calibrate it in my kitchen... when I took the thing off, man it was disgusting. Caked in nasty stinky crap. The last time I brewed was on Monday (2 days ago) and I flushed the system with HOT PBW for about an hour. In the entire time I've owned my system, I've never taken it apart to clean it, but I'm thinking it might be a good idea. This could be why SABCO just recently changed that exact same thermometer to a tri-clover connection for cleaning. A fair bit of crap get stuck in the thermo-probe area and it doesn't flush out.

That is a great upgrade.
I have tried to use those tri-clover fittings for each part of my system, but I never thought about the thermometers.
Interesting.

I know that the ball valve on my kettle needs to be replaced and it is not hard to do, but the thermometer right above it as a tri-clover would be a welcome adjustment to the overall cleaning regiment of mine.
