Description

Chill your beer in the summer and warm your beer in the winter! Temperature control during fermentation is one of the keys to making world class beer at home. It can be difficult to achieve however, often requiring you to have a temperature controlled refrigerator dedicated to fermentation. Now with the FTSs temperature control package and either a Brew Bucket or Chronical,  you can maintain perfect fermenting temps all year.  This particular unit is designed to work specifically with the 7 gallon Brew Bucket.

The system is elegant and engineered to be as compact and affordable as possible. The FTSs uses a precision digital temperature controller in combination with a 304 stainless steel immersion chiller. The digital controller constantly monitors your beer’s temperature and will activate the very quiet circulation pump to hold the fermentation temperature at your predetermined set point. You can cold crash or lager too! You supply the chill water source, which can be as simple as ice water in a cooler or as involved as glycol from a chiller’s reservoir. We supply the rest of the system. As long time fellow home brewers, this is a system we know many of you have been dreaming about for a long time: advanced temperature control for the beers you make at an affordable price.

Components:

  • Custom lid w/ 304 SS immersion chiller coil
  • Pro grade (super quiet) submersible pump
  • 110-240 v power supply
  • 304 SS weldless lid mounted thermowell
  • Tailored neoprene insulation jacket
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Included vinyl tubing

Required from you:

  • Any type of cooler where you will add water and ice, or frozen jugs, to cool. You will submerse the included pump in the water. 
  • To heat you can use a simple aquarium heater to raise the temperature of the water in the cooler
  • A Brew Bucket, FE800

Please Note: This Product is an add on for a BrewBucket, and DOES NOT INCLUDE the brewbucket itself.

Great temp control in hot climates
Works amazing down here in Texas. Keep a couple 2 liter pop bottles frozen in the freezer and just cycle them.

Awesome
Love this! Living in Florida and controlling temps isn't easy. I had an old fridge that I was using as a ferm chamber in my garage but something about fermenting in the garage didn't appeal to me. I bought this and use a bucket of water in my keezer as a chill water source and haven't looked back. I just ordered a second ftss for my other brew bucket since this works so well for me.

Highly Recommended
I used this for the first time yesterday and it really is a remarkable product. I found out from researching SSBrewTech the FTSS can also be used as a wort chiller which really sealed the deal. I got my porter down to pitchable temperatures in no time! Now all I need to do is wait a few weeks for bottling, no more worries about temperature fluctuations during fermenting. Highly recommended!

Great product!
I purchased the FTSs about 5 months ago and have made 3 batches with it. It's very easy to setup and use and works great! The quality of my beer has gone up dramatically being able to precisely control the temperature within a 1-2 degree range. I have it setup with a 5 gallon igloo cooler and use frozen 1 liter soda bottles in about 2.5 gallons of water as the cooling medium. Change out the bottles once per day in hot weather.

awesome product and great service
I love my fermenter. The conical bottom produces a clean beer. Customer service was great. I had a small issue with my gasket creating a gap when tightened. The response was immediate and fixed my problem.

been waiting for this
I've used the FTSs with the brew bucket to ferment 7+ batches since I got it. It works exactly as promised. I highly recommend the FTSs.

I use 2 of these on brew buckets and 1 on a 14gal chronical. I use them with a homemade glycol chiller (found direction from a link on SS brewing's website). The temperature control is awesome and effective. I love using this in both winter and summer and can even crash my beers with this system.

The only two real problems I have are that the inlets for the thermocouple and the heat exchanger are based on o-rings which makes it hard to know if you have a good seal. The next nasty problem is that the heat exchanger is barb connects which makes it a HUGE pain to remove and clean since you have to remove worm clamps and pull the hose off the hard way to to clean the lid.
