Awesome heater!

Review by MARK B. on 12/14/2005

Pros: You cannot find a better way to control your fermentation temp than using a digital controller with a probe that is in the fermentor. I use one of these Brewer's Edge heaters in a 13.7 cu.ft. freezer and it has no problem keeping the temp into the lower 70's (I haven't tried it any higher) during the winter where my basement gets into the low 40's. I have two freezer&conacle setups. Thw first one I put together I used a different type of space heater which I am replacing with one of these Brewer's Edge's. These mount real nice, the other type I taped on. I've been using it for over a year. It has a great adhesive backing and sticks to the freezer wall very well. Nice construction, will last a long time. -Mark 7NUNS

Cons: None.

Very nice heater for ferm cavity

Review by weakmank on 2/17/2006

Pros: I have had this heater going on about 6 years now. I have it inside of my ferm. fridge along with a temperature controller. Very satisfied with with product. Price is almost the same as it was 6 yrs. ago. Mine is in use as I write.

Cons: None.

Works great!

Review by John K. on 5/10/2010

Pros: I purchased this to use in one of my fridges during the winter - since the fridge is the garage, it gets cold in there. I had been using an old heating pad, but this works better, especially since it adheres to the wall of the fridge. I hooked it up to a Brewer's Edge Controller to maintain a consistent temperature of my choosing.

Excellent little heater for smaller space

Review by Ubermick on 5/12/2010

Pros: This little guy takes up zero space in my fermentation chamber, which is about 7 cubic feet, and holds a Sanke that I ferment in. It takes a little while to get the chamber up to temp, but for it's size I'm amazed at how well it does. Really happy with the way it performs. Great product, especially for the price.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Better than expected

Review by Rob on 1/20/2012

I'm using this to heat a 7.0 cf freezer that I'm using as a fermentation chamber. I added a collar to provide extra clearance for my conical fermenter, so it's probably closer to 11.0 cf now. Anyway, it's in an unheated garage and even though the outside temps dipped into the high teens and low 20's, I was able to maintain ferm temps of around 68F. So I'd say this heater works even better than advertised. I also like that it takes up zero space. That might not be a big deal for those with larger ferm chambers, but when you're using a 7.0 cf freezer it's nice not to have a bulky heater taking up space.
