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. 

Shipping Limitation: This item does not qualify for free shipping.

I don't have fermentation control yet

Cool Brewing bag works but can be tedious work in summer months (DC). Time to dial it in for 1* and use the cool bag for 2*. Adding glycol chiller will make summer brewing a breeze.

Wanted to upgrade controlled fermentation temperature capabilities with paying the price for a glycol chilling system.

Fits my present system.

This seemed to be a solution that was ready made for warmer room temps I anticipate int he coming months. Where I live, temps are too warm even for ales.

already have the brew bucket, and did not want to spend more to upgrade to new fermentors.

I was told this was THE ONE. Honestly, I might have been a little jealous, but he still makes me coffee in the morning, so there's that.

Need 1 for the other bucket.

Overdue
Excellent addition for temp control. Was using "Cool Brewing" bag before but will use that for 2* fermentation now. I wish the kit was sold in components, ie, just the top and coil as i have other temp controllers and pumps already. Only negative is the neoprene cover does not accommodate the thermowell in the Brewmaster Bucket (i'll make a careful incision to accommodate it). Pump runs quietly. Easy to set up and calibrate. Next addition glycol chiller! (no more swapping frozen gatorade containers- at least not for 1*)

Works great!
I brew 10 gallon batches and split them into two brew bucket fermenters. This is a great upgrade because now I can experiment with fermenting at different temperatures or combinations of yeast types. For example, I'm brewing a Cold IPA. One fermenter using 34/70 yeast at 62 degs, the other fermenter at 64 degs using Cali yeast!

Kept the fermenting within 1/2 degree!
I brewed three batches and kept each at the specific temperature steps with the FTSs during repeated heat waves during the month.

Each batch was perfect! And cleaning the brew Bucket is so easy!

I recommend adding the right angle fitting to use a blow-off tube during fermenting, then attached it to CO2 to transfer into a keg to minimize oxidation.

Cheers!

Take care Of it and it will take care of you. Get a fish tank heater to establish temps above 68

Extremely effective
This system is amazing! Once the lid is assembled and the parts have all been cleansed and passivated, everything is very plug-and-play. It eliminated all the temperature babysitting I would otherwise have to do and I'm already loving it after just one brew.

The only one major drawback is that the seams on the neoprene fermenter cover are very fragile and started coming apart the moment I put it on my brewbucket.

This would be fine if I never had to take it off, but I'd like to have the option of doing so; that way it would be easier to avoid getting water, cleaning products, trub and whatnot else mixed up in it when cleaning the fermenter.

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.
