FermWrap Fermentation Heater from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Keep your yeast happy and your ferment warm during those cold winter months with this flexible heater wrap! Unlike those old heater belts, the FermWrap covers a wide area of your carboy or fermentation vessel, promoting an even heat distribution (11″ tall x 25″ wide.). Using tape to adhere, the FermWrap can be attached directly to your fermenter, or can be used to heat the space in a box (or refrigerator) that the fermenter is in. Depending on your configuration and insulation, you can increase the temperature of your ferment from 5-20 degrees Fahrenheit. This differential can be increased by using our carboy bag to insulate a carboy (this has been tested). To decrease the temperature differential, stick only a portion of the FermWrap to the fermenter.

With 40 watts of heat spread over almost two square feet it provides gentle even heating. Draws 40 watts. 115V.

For more precise results, we recommend a temp controller and carboy thermowell for the ultimate in fermentation temperature control. Or for the best control, use the dual stage control and carboy thermowell, as well as a refrigerator, to control both the high and low temps.

  • ACCELERATE YOUR BREW CYCLE: Shave up to a week off your brew time, so you can enjoy your home-brewed tea sooner, and get started on your next batch!
  • CUSTOM HEAT CONTROL :Monitor the temperature of your brew with the easy-to-apply crystal thermometer strip, and adjust the heat as needed with the belt’s power dial
  • SAFE AND ECO FRIENDLY : Highly energy efficient, water proof, and safe for your scoby.(It’s normal and safe there will be a bit of taste.)
  • PERFECT FOR LARGER-SCALE HOME BREWING:The heating filament itself is 35” long, perfectly suited for home brew vessels up to 8 gallons in volume. Alternatively, it can be wrapped around 2 smaller vessels at once (1-2 gallons each) if you’re doing double duty!

 

Note from HBF:  This is a little different than most of the heat belts I see because it features a heat control adjustment.  I’m not sure that it’s adjustable to the point that you won’t need a temp controller, maybe… Inkbird Dual Stage Temp Controller [Hands on Review].  Having said that, adding the ability to control heat output is a nice feature, in my opinion.

Hands on Review: BrewJacket Immersion Pro + Limited Time Deal for Conical Users

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.

BrewJacket Immersion Pro

Sometimes homebrewing articles give very sage-like advice. “If you really want to take your beers to the next level, you need to do this…” If you’re like me, you lap that up, digest it, and see how you might incorporate whatever process/technique they’re talking about into your brewing. I’m not personally vouching for or debating the value of fermentation temperature control, but I introduce that topic as the starting point of this review. I’ve seen it mentioned multiple times in some of these articles and became a variable I wanted to get better control of. Whether something makes a notable difference or not in every batch I brew, my approach is to eliminate as many of the variables out there that can ruin a beer and on the whole it should allow my process to become more repeatable.

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.

Use to control fermentation or kegerator temperatures.  I have a similar (although not identical) controller from Inkbird.  The base unit is the same (ITC-308), the temperature sensors are different.  Check out my [Hands on Review] of that unit.
