The Brewer’s Edge Fermentation Space Heater is specially designed for use with the Controller II (or other precision heating thermostat) to heat the inside of a refrigerator or other small (25 cubic foot or less) insulated area. This flexible 1/8” thick vinyl heater features an self-adhesive back, so it can be permanently mounted on an interior wall of a refrigerator, without taking up any usable space in the refrigerator. During the Summer, just leave it affixed to the refrigerator without plugging it in.

The Fermentation Space Heater draws only 25 watts of power, yet is powerful enough to keep a small enclosed insulated area (25 cubic feet or less) 20° warmer than the surrounding air. This means you can, with the heater plugged into the Controller II, precisely heat a closed refrigerator, freezer, or other small insulated area. Even if your refrigerator is in an unheated garage that gets down to 42°F. during the winter, you can still brew an ale that requires a 60° - 65° fermentation temperature. This heater is not an immersion heater, and is not intended to be installed on or under a fermenter. 8” by 12” in diameter, with a 6’ power cord.

exactly what my ferm fridge needed
i have a 7 cu ft chest freezer that i converted to a fermentation chamber... i used a stc-1000 controller for the cooling and am using this for the heating. it heats up quick and helps me regulate temp as i want down to +/- 1 degree... highly recommend

Good, but not ideal
I own 2 conical fermenters, and I use this along with another heating element to regulate temperatures within my fridges. The adhesive pads do stick very well, and produce heat, but someone needs to create an effective heating element to attach to conicals, due to the steel. This product does what it says, but the cost is a factor, and other products that have direct contact to your fermenter, along with a temp controller is ideal. Think before you pay.

Great for my fermentation fridge
I have a chest freezer i use for fermentation. In the winter my garage can get to 40 degrees. Using this heats the whole space and keeps a consistent temp for fermentation when hooked up to a temp controller. I can easily get 70+ (Have not fermented much warmer). I found it works best when placed lower in the fridge as the heat will rise. Great product that takes up very little space!

Works great!
I rigged this up to my Ranco temperature controller in an old fridge I'm using as a fermentation chamber and for my first brew in my new chamber, it kept the temp at a constant 68 degrees in my basement. Sweet!

Great for small enclosures
I have this mounted to the inner wall of my mini-fridge fermentation chamber. The space heater and the refrigerator itself are controlled by a Ranco 2-stage temperature controller, and I am able to regulate the temperature very well to within +- 1 degrees F. This works very well for the small enclosed space that I am working with, but given that the heater must first heat the surrounding air in order to raise the temperature of the beer, I do not imagine that it would work as well with a larger chamber. In this case, I'd recommend something more direct, like the Brew Belt.
