This 120 Volt Heater can maintain wine or beer fermenting temperatures in cold room, garage, or basement. Adjusts to fit 3, 5 and 6 gallon carboys or 5, 6, and 8 gallon buckets. Not recommended for glass carboys.
Designed to wrap around most primary (up to 10 gallon) or secondary fermenters and carboys. Even fits the V-Vessel. Heats at a constant 75 F. Great for winter time basement brewing and wine making.
Some key product notes are: The lower the belt is positioned on the fermenting container the higher the must temperature will rise. The belt should not be left plugged in for more then 8 days in a row. It should not (and really doesn't need to be) used in room temperatures above 75-80 degrees F. The must or wort temperature should be monitored daily. Do not cover the belt with a blanket or wrap it and use it away from flammable material. Works great in cool climates!
The manufacturer states they should not be used on glass but our experienced brewers have had no problems with glass carboys in good condition (no cracks).
