This mat was featured in our November post on maintaining fermentation temperatures in colder weather.
I use a reptile heating mat in my fermentation deep freeze when I need to warm the space up a bit. Think of these as heating pads that are designed to operate constantly.
The mat I’m using is 9 Watts. It has no trouble raising my fermentation deep freeze (located in my basement) by several degrees. I use this throughout the year whenever I want to push fermentation temperatures higher. I do not set my fermenter on my mat. I use it only to warm up the ambient air inside my fermentation deep freeze.
Zoo Med manufactures three sizes of these mats. The small is 8 watts, the medium is 16 watts and the large is 24 watts. Here is the specifications page from the manufacturers website.
