Description

Keep your yeast happy and your ferment warm during those cold winter months with this flexible heater wrap! Don't be fooled by imitators and cheap knock-offs, this is the original FermWrap that has been produced by Fermentap for over a decade. Unlike those old heater belts, the FermWrap covers a wide area of your carboy or fermentation vessel, promoting an even heat distribution. 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°F. This differential can be increased by using the BrewBuilt™ Neoprene Carboy Sleeve.

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

For more precise results, we recommend a temp controller and carboy thermowell. The controller will monitor the fermentation temp and only power on the FermWrap if the temperature drops below your set point. For the ultimate level of control, we recommend pairing it with the BrewBuilt CoolStix™ to provide cooling. With both accessories plugged into the temp controller, you'll get cooling or heating whenever you need it.

Specs:

  • 40 watts
  • 115V
  • 11" H x 25" W
 
Item does not include carboy as pictured.

Can this be used on a Fermentasaurus without damaging it?

Can this be used on plastic Fermontser 7gal?
Timothy Chilcoat on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have also used it on my Spidel 30 L ( 7.9 Gal). And works excellent. I did use a beach towel to wrap around my plastic Spide 30 L as temps were dropping down into the 30 s in my shop.
Can I put this on a stainless steal fermenter?
Cainon brown on Jan 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I use mine on a 7 gal stainless steel fermenter and am VERY happy with it. I brew in my garage and with an inkbird controller, this heater will keep my beer at 68 F even when the garage temp is 30 F. I use black electrical tape to hold it against the fermenter. To be fair, I do wrap the fermenter with insulation right over the heater.
How much can you raise the temperature with the sleeve added?
Jeffrey Clause on Mar 30, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I wrapped a glass fermenter with this heater and then covered everything with towels. It fermented a beer with Kveik yeast at close to 100°F. It might be able to go higher, but it seemed like that was about the limit. I used a temperature controller to maintain that temperature, so I don't know for sure.
When using this with the Neoprene sleeve does it go inside or outside the sleeve?
Ryan Heideman on Apr 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You will get the most efficient use of your heater by putting it directly onto your fermenter and inside the neoprene sleeve.
Will this work with the 7.5 gallon anvil bucket fermenter? Cheers
Jeff Shoemaker on Jan 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have a 7 gallon BrewBucket, so I can’t see why it wouldn’t work on the Anvil. I wrap it around the fermenter and use masking tape to tape the edges to the fermenter.
Can this be used on the stainless steel brewbucket fermenter?
John Lilli on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: On the outside of the fermenter yes. Works great with a bit of extra insulation around it for improved heat retention.
How do you use the FermWrap with the Fermzilla and the Insulating Jacket? I thought the Fermzilla couldn't use a heater because it's plastic.

This works great in conjunction with an InkBird . May fermenter stays a reasonably consistent temperature.

Heats well
It does a good job heating my chest freezer during periods of fermentation. Would recommend only using with a temperature controller as the heat wrap does not have a temp control.

Did not fit the 7 gal X1 Uni, however...
While this didn't work out for my fermenter, I have repurposed it in an ice cooler to keep fermenting kombucha at 80 F along with an Inkbird ITC 308.

Not great
I had to recrimp the wire connection on to the heater after the first use. Not easy to wrap around fermentor and actually have it stay in place.

Works pretty well. Did what I needed it to.
I was skeptical about this being able to raise 5.5 gallons by 8 degrees, but it did. The carboy has ribs on it every couple of inches, so the wrap pretty much rests on the ribs, then you have to tape it in place. I used a controller in conjunction with this wrap and it worked out very good.
