About this deal

Most fermentation brew belts are simply a rubber strip with the heating element inside that has the flexible power cord threaded through.

As a bonus, the heat belt comes with a stick-on thermometer to help you monitor the temperature of your brew more accurately. The Heat Belt can be used to aid fermentation with one or two demijohns or any make of 5 Gallon/25 Litre vessel and is suitable for both beer, spirits and winemaking. I've wrapped this around an SS Brewtech Brewmaster bucket, hooked it up to and inkbird temp controller and it works a treat. Cost-Effective: Heat belt heaters are relatively inexpensive compared to other temperature control methods, such as a temperature-controlled fermentation chamber.Wrapping the brew belt around the middle of your fermenter gives a more even heat distribution than a heat pad. Whilst we endeavour to make sure that glass bottles are packed as well as possible we cannot send out replacement for any breakages. Someone I know was telling me how they were really pleased with the mat they'd got and that it was holding the beer at a steady 28C. This is due to the consistent and gentle heat provided by the heating belt, which aids in the fermentation process.

Perfect if you need to keep your brew in a spare room, garage of cellar where the temperature is less than ideal for brewing. I thought that my old bottles with vulcanite screw thread tops were going to have to be relegated to a collection on a shelf as I had run out of the old fashioned rubber seals. If we do not receive photographic evidence of the damage we will not be able to process a claim and therefore will not be able to offer a refund/exchange. Ideally, we want to control fermentation temperature as close as possible to the optimum temperature range for the yeast strain we are using.We apologize that this will increase postage costs but this is because we have had to switch to fully tracked services as Royal mail do not seem to want to deliver letters or untracked post. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. Some appreciate the value for money, saying that it's the cheapest option to heat resin in a cold space.

The heat belt is wrapped around the fermenter and the cord pulled tight so it grips around the fermenter at the height you choose (more on this in a moment).Items must be in a new and unused condition, complete with all packaging in the state in which it was delivered. I'm afraid my alternative to the kitchen would be my shed which gets way too cold even with a heater. Constant temperature ensures that the yeast or bacteria in the brew can thrive and produce the desired flavours and aromas. Feature 1: European 2-Pin Round EU Plug - 25W Feature 2: Keep your yeasties snug and warm with this easy to use heat belt.

You really want to keep your fermentation temperatures as stable as possible, so it'll all require some dialing in. One of the main advantages of using the temperature adjustable heat belt over a heating pad is that it can be easily moved up or down the fermenter to increase or decrease the heat transfer to the brew. Improve the quality of your beer and wine whilst reducing fermentation time with this electric heat belt. It is ideal for aiding fermentation with one or two demijohns or any make of 5 Gallon/25 Litre vessel, and is suitable for beer, spirits, and wine making. The Heat Belt is designed to be used during primary fermentation and to aid the start of secondary fermentation.The lower the belt is positioned on the fermenting container, the higher the wort or must temperature will rise. Remember, in low temperature fermentation may stall and in high temperature the yeast will produce off flavours. That said, some complain about the durability, saying that it burnt out on first use and that the wiring is cheaply made. Big swings in temperature are not good for yeast health and may cause unwanted flavour compounds to be produced by the yeast. One thing I may try through is after seeing my local HBS this weekend he had one taped on but sort of spiralling around the FV not just a single band, may help to quell my paranoia of hot spots etc.
