Maintaining Fermentation Temps in Colder Weather

cold weather homebrewing

Fermentation temperature has a lot to do with how your finished beer turns out.

As seasons turn, you may need a boost to keep fermentation temperatures up.  Here’s a roundup of some of the available options out there along with some related reviews and resource posts

Fermentation Heaters and Warmers

Temperature Controllers

These work in conjunction with your heating and/or cooling devices to help you control fermentation temperature.  Although this post is generally focused on cooler temperatures, you can gain further control by using a dual stage unit to control both a heater and a cooling device.  That means you should have good control year round.

      I would go with the medium or large size. I think small could probably swing 5 degrees, but it would be a slower reaction than the medium or large versions.
