BrewJacket Immersion Temperature Controller – Save $50 + free shipping & Hands on Review

BrewJacket

BrewJacket Immersion Temperature Control System via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

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

About: “The BrewJacket Immersion Base Unit 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 35º F (20º C) below the ambient temperature in your house.”

The BrewJacket employs solid state electronics to cool your fermenting beer.  This immersion mechanism means you can dial in fermentation temperature and even lager without the need for a dedicated and space consuming refrigerator or chest freezer.

From BrewJacket: “At the heart of Immersion is a patented solid state cooling system. Solid state cooling technology relies on dissimilar metals joined in circuit within a microchip. When an electrical current is passed through the metals, heat is moved. The result is an instantaneous transfer of an enormous amount of heat.

Immersion works by creating a heat vacuum within your fermenting beer. The solid state cooling engine pulls heat out of the beer, through the hard anodized transfer rod, through the cooling chip, then up to the heat sink where it is fanned off into the ambient environment. No compressors, no glycol, no pumps.”

Includes:

  • Immersion Unit
  • Insulated Jacket
  • Drilled Stopper
  • Bulkhead connector and one-way co2 release valve
  • Universal Power Supply: 100v-240v, 50/60hz with cord for your country of choice

In my opinion the original ITC-308 was and is a game changer as far as homebrew temp controllers.  In comparison to available controllers available at the time the ITC-308 was released, it offered loads more features, including dual stage control, for a fraction of the price.  Game changer!  The addition of Wi-Fi control and monitoring to this great controller has made a great temp controller even better.  Check out our Hands on Review of the ITC-308.  That includes a section on the WiFi version.

Kenley Fermentation Carboy Heater with Thermostat – Kombucha Heating Kit – Home Brewing Heat Strip Belt Wrap Brew Warmer Warming Pad with Temperature Controller – Works with any Vessel up to 8 Gallons

More Info

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

  • BREW IN ANY CONDITIONS Whether you’re brewing kombucha, wine or beer, the Kenley heating system lets you control the temperature of the vessel. You won’t run the risk of overheating your brew or letting it chill.
  • CONTROL BREW TEMPERATURE EASILY This Kenley fermentation heating kit comes with a temperature controller which means that heater only kicks in when it registers a drop in temperature and stops running as soon as the right temperature is reached.
  • USE YOUR EXISTING VESSELS Designed to work with almost any fermentation vessel up to 8 gallons, this Kenley fermentation heater is flexible and easy to fit snugly against the carboy. The 32x11in film simply wraps around the jar and is secured with the elastic bands supplied.
  • SPEED UP BREWING TIMES Yeast activity slows as the temperature drops, but stops entirely if the temperature is too high. By maintaining a constant temperature, you can create the perfect conditions for the brew you’re using, reducing the brew time so you can create more perfect batches.
  • MINIMAL ENERGY USAGE Each brew has particular needs, yet you may only have one environment, be it a chilly garage or a temperate spare room. The Kenley kit only uses the minimum energy required, unlike always-on systems, which keeps your energy costs down.

 

12/28/19 5 PM Central: This combo has dropped to just $33.99. That’s the best historical third party Amazon price I found, notwithstanding Lightning Deals or coupons.

BrewBuilt Icemaster Glycol Chiller – wort chiller & fermentation temp control – $679.99, Save $120 + Hands on Review!

Icemaster 100 Glycol Chiller with Stainless Bulkheads GLY351

Icemaster 100 Glycol Chiller with Stainless Bulkheads via MoreBeer

More Info

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

The Icemaster is designed to cool fermentations in small vessels. It can be used with any vessel that has a glycol jacket or submersed cooling coil/rod. For each vessel you want to cool you will need to buy one of our Glycol Pump Kits. Each tank is able to be separately temperature controlled. Each Glycol Pump Kit includes a submersible pump that is placed in the cool bath of this chiller along with a digital controller. The digital controller includes a thermal probe that should be inserted into a thermal well in your vessel or can be taped to the outside of the vessel if you don’t have a thermal well. The digital controller then measures the temperature of your tank and turns the submersible pump on or off to cool to your desired set temperature. Up to four tanks can be controlled separately with one Icemaster and four Glycol Pump Kits (GLY355).

Compatability
The Icemaster can be used with any fermenter that has a built in cooling jacket or a submersed cooling coil. It works well as the cooling source for the following sytems and fermenters.

  • Ss Brewtech Fermenters and Brites with optional FTS Temperature Control Systems: Because FTS systems include a pump and controller you will not need to buy a separate Glycol Pump Kit.
  • Spike Conical with Optional Cooling Package – Because the optional Spike cooling system includes a pump and controller you will not need to buy a separate Glycol Pump Kit.
  • Speidel Tanks with Optional Cooling Jackets – You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for each tank.
  • Grainfather Fermenters – Grainfather fermenters have standard cooling jackets. You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for eash fermenter
  • Blichmann Fermenators with Optional Cooling Coil – You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for each Fermenator.

It is always difficult to determine exactly how many tanks can be chilled at one time as it depends on what is happening in each tank, if the tank is insulated, and what the ambient temperature is. Cold crashing always requires the most energy and requires tank insulation. We have experimented with capacities and can provide this general guide based on a 75 degree ambient and neoprene insulation. Neoprene does not provide much in the way insulation so you would obtain better results using Armaflex or a higher R rating insulation. If only controlling fermentation temps the capacity would be higher. Four Glycol Pump Kits (GLY355) is the maximum that will fit in the Icemaster. We are working on smaller glycol pump kits, where the pumps have smaller footprints, so the Icemaster right now has the capacity to use 5 pumps through the bulkhead fittings.

Cold Crashing capacity at 75F with neoprene insulation (double for fermentation temperature control):

2 – 1BBL (31 Gallon) Tank with neo
3 to 4 – 1/2BBL (15-20 Gallon) Tanks
4+ – 10-14 Gallon Tanks
4+ – 5-7 Gallon Tanks
