100 Watt 110/120V Ceramic Heat Emitter Bulb.

Note: Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions.

From Tony: “I’ve been trying to figure out a “perfect” heating solution for my fermentation chamber, which up until recently has used a regular light bulb for heat. It was recommended by a few other people and it worked great, cheap too… but… they’re fragile. They also do burn out, so you have to have an alarm set or check them frequently. Read up about someone using a reptile tank heating pad and thought that might be a good option, but the cheapest ones I found are $15 and have some pretty widely varying reviews (and questionable build quality). Then Amazon suggested a ceramic heating bulb to me. Considering I already have the light socket hardware for my current heating solution,”

Update:  A report back from Tony…

I got the ceramic bulb a few days ago and it’s happily keeping my fermentation chamber (guessing it’s around 10-12 cubic feet) in the right temperature range.

Using in conjunction with an Inkbird itc-308.  Will definitely go this route in the future.

    Do you have any posts of reader’s fermentation chambers (pics) ? currently I used a box made of the pink foam insulation you get from home depot, but I had a fire marshall inspection here and she said you can’t have that stuff in the house (highly combustible, supposed to be for outside use only)
