The BrewJacket Immersion Pro Fermentation Temperature Control System

The BrewJacket Immersion Pro Fermentation Temperature Control System via Austin Homebrew Supply


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Introducing The BrewJacket Immersion Pro, a compact liquid cooler that allows you to create world class ales and lagers without a refrigerator and thermostat setup. This complete fermentation temperature control system brings your fermenting beer down as low as 35 F (20 C) below the ambient temperature in your house and can even use the ambient temperature to heat your wort back up if the temperature drops too low. Utilizing a solid state cooling systems, the Immersion Pro pulls heat out of your beer through the hard anodized transfer rod, through a cooling chip and finally to a heat sink where it is fanned out, no need for compressors, pumps or glycol. The upgraded Immersion Pro can even reverse this process, bringing ambient heat back into wort through the transfer rod to raise the temperature in your beer.

This system is also super simply to operate, with only two buttons and displays. The buttons raise and lower the set temperature, while the displays provide a real time readout of both the target temperature and the current temperature in your fermenter. The compact design of the BrewJacket Immersion Pro makes cleaning and storage a breeze. The Immersion’s rod easily unscrews, allowing you to place inside your fermenter when sanitizing prior to use. After your beer has completed fermentation, clean the transfer rod with soap and hop water using a kitchen sponge and let rod air dry.

Hands On Review: Inkbird ITC-308 Dual Stage Temperature Controller – Now Includes WiFi Version!

cln_pliny

Inkbird’s ITC-308 Digital Dual Stage Temperature Controller is a dual stage, pre-wired Digital Temperature Controller

It comes in the original version as well as an updated Wi-Fi enabled model.  This review covers both editions of this controller.

Why a Temp Controller?

Temperature controllers, sometimes referred to as over-riding thermostats, can control devices like refrigerators, freezers and fermentation heating devices to provide a consistent temperature for your kegerator, fermentation chamber or brew system. They do this by monitoring the temperature and cycling on and off the device in question. Generally, you will set the device to full cooling or heating power and the temperature controller takes over from there.

Dual vs Single Stage

Dual stage means that the ITC-308 can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.  Dual Display shows both measured and set temperature.

Ranco ETC-111000 Digital Temp Controller + Why this vs Inkbird?

Ranco ETC (Electronic Temperature Controller) model 111000.  Single stage digital temp controller,

Use as an overriding thermostat to control your compatible kegerator chest freezer, refrigerator or fermentation chamber.  I believe this is an unwired unit.  If that’s the case, you need to manually wire it yourself.  Why would you choose this over something like the Inkbird Dual Stage Temp Controller?  The Ranco is generally more expensive and offers fewer features when compared to the ITC-308.  In my opinion, the advantage that the Ranco does have is ruggedness.  These are built for commercial applications.  This question in my mind is… do you need a rugged commercial quality unit?  If yes, then this is a controller you may want to look at.

What are others saying?  Search this product’s Amazon reviews for “kegerator”  AND  “brew”

Hands on Review: Anvil Bucket Fermentor Cooling System

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Anvil Bucket Fermentor Cooling System

Blichmann created the Anvil line of equipment to provide good gear at an affordable price. Across the line-up, you can find great quality stuff that’s notably cheaper than other high-end brew gear. By making it more affordable, it allows more homebrewers to step up their equipment. I reviewed their 7.5 gallon stainless bucket fermentor a little over a year ago. It was a great product, but it wasn’t compatible with my existing fermentation temperature control systems. So I was excited to see they came out with a custom system. And as per their formula, it was upper tier brewing capability at an attainable price.

Anvil Fermentor Cooling System for 7.5 Gallon Brew Bucket at Great Fermentations | Full Anvil Lineup


The system is targeted to those looking to control their temperatures in the 50-55F temperature zone where lager yeast provides its cleanest flavors. It comes with a neoprene insulating jacket to insulate the walls of the bucket, a cooling coil & thermowell mated to a special stopper, a submersible pump and cooling lines to circulate your cooling water, and a digital controller. The neoprene jacket is custom-made for the Anvil fermentor, with cut-outs for the handles, the lid clamps, and the spigot.
