Description

Keep your yeast happy and your ferment warm during those cold winter months with this flexible heater wrap! Unlike those old heater belts, the FermWrap covers a wide area of your carboy or fermentation vessel, promoting an even heat distribution (11" tall x 25" wide.). 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 degrees Fahrenheit. This differential can be increased by using our carboy bag to insulate a carboy (this has been tested). To decrease the temperature differential, stick only a portion of the FermWrap to the fermenter.

With 40 watts of heat spread over almost two square feet it provides gentle even heating. Draws 40 watts. 115V.

For more precise results, we recommend a temp controller and carboy thermowell for the ultimate in fermentation temperature control. Or for the best control, use the dual stage control and carboy thermowell, as well as a refrigerator, to control both the high and low temps.

This is the original FermWrap(TM) manufactured and wired by Fermentap in the USA. Be aware there are now some imitations being sold coming from China that have the electrical wire connections, where the cord meets the heat wrap, sealed with silicone. The FermWrap uses the proper electrical clip connections which are safer and will last longer.

Item does not include carboy as pictured.

BEST ANSWER: I use one with my fermentasaurus without any problems.
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 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.

Great!
Awesome tool to keep your fermentation at a stable temp. Keep in mind it can only go ~15 F warmer than ambient temp.

perfect for my needs
This works great. I had problems heating up past 80F while brewing a saison, using only the bottom heating pad. I bought this to try instead. It immediately heated up to what I needed... around 88F. It heats fairly fast as well. Only used it once so far, but I'm definitely satisfied.

works well
This, in combination with the Inkbird controller, keeps my fermenter at a much more uniform temp than any other heater that I've tried. I haven't had it long enough to speak to reliability. The only thing that could improve it would be some permanent Velcro straps to make removal for washing easier.

Easy to use
I have this taped to the wall inside my fermentation chamber (chest freezer) attached to dual phase temperature controller. works great to pull the temp up when the nights get a little too cold

it works
I wrapped this around a 60L Speidel fermenter and it gained me a few degrees, but wasn't enough to keep me in range in my garage. I thought of wrapping blanket around the outside but worried about getting too warm. decided to drag the fermenter from the garage to a spare bathroom, ill keep the heater for use in the future.

Carboy Heater Blanket
Since my wine cellar is not temp controlled, it is 55 deg right now as it is winter in the Sierra foothills. With this carboy heater plugged directly into a plug, the car will only get up to 68 deg.
I would like ti to get a little hotter, even if I needed a controller to reduce it some.

It does the trick.
I was making a Saison that required higher temperatures. It did the trick. It's cheaper and takes up less room than building a fermentation chamber. I did wrap the carboy in a jacket but was able to raise temps into the 90s.

the design is perfect for heating large vessels
I do have a couple of brew belts but bought the fermwrap because I liked the idea of a much larger surface area contacting my fermenter. I use 60 liter Speidel fermenters and the fermwrap does a nice job of maintaining temperature as managed by Johnson controls temp controllers. I normally wrap a blanket around the fermenter, and loosen/remove the blanket during peak fermentation when the yeast is generating a lot of heat.

The construction seems a little fragile as compared to the brew belts, but I haven't had any problem so far. I am careful with it and hang it vertically when it's not being used.
