    Worthy upgrade

    Posted by Mike on Apr 18th 2017

    It's not the exact size as the original but it still fits into the same slots. The Bluetooth feature was more useful than I anticipated. Got to sit down and spend time w the fam and would get a beep when it went from one stage to another or I could monitor/change temps/stages in real time from my device. The connect definitely holds temps better. For example, when mashing w the original it always fluctuated a couple degrees over/under the desired temp. Not this things. If I set it to 152f, it stays at 152f. Changing general settings or multiple mash steps/temps was easy. Overall, it's a nice little upgrade. Was able to get free shipping and Strangebrewing got this hard to get item out and delivered a lot faster than anything I've ever received from NB/MWS. Good product so far and great customer service.
