Chill your beer in the summer and warm your beer in the winter! Use a chill water source when it's hot or warmed water if it's cold! Temperature control during fermentation is one of the most significant contributors to the flavor of our beers, yet it all too often gets overlooked. This particular unit is designed to work specifically with the Half Barrel Chronical Fermentor, which must be purchased separately (see YMANs below).
Brewers typically have limited the styles of beers they produce to the varying temperatures of the seasons. The system is elegant and engineered, yet it stays true to the heart and soul of us home brewers. 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 circulation pump (which, by the way, is quieter than a mouse) to hold the fermentation temperature at your predetermined set point. You can crash cool 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.
Please Note: The 15.5 Gal Chronicals had a design change in 2015, moving from an 8 clamp lid system to a 10 clamp. Please choose the appropriate option above, as there are different jackets for each clamp quantity.
