About this deal

If you're a home brewer making wine, beer or cider and you are looking for an easy way to maintain the brewing temperature of your fermentation, a heat belt heater is an excellent choice. The heat can be regulated by moving the Brew Belt higher or lower on the vessel. If it needs to be warmer lower the belt, if it is getting too warm, slide it up the outside of the vessel.

Home Brew Heat Belt – Brewing Mate

Heat pads are made to take the weight of the fermenter complete with wort in it, so around 25-30 kgs. If you do a double brew in a 60l fermenter you should think about using a heat belt.Also if you have a Stainless steel fermenter with a plastic base then a belt is best. There are a few downfalls to most heating belts on the market. First, we were hard-pressed to find a heating belt with its own temperature controller, so if you want the most control possible, you’ll need to invest in a temperature controller. The temperature is set at around 28 on both appliances. This is a good temperature for cold weather brewing because due to heat loss and ambient temperatures it will not heat the entire brew all the way through at 28. It will more likely be around 24 ish.

New to brewing?

There are a few options and each has it's advantages and disadvantages, so here is a bit about each and when to use them; If you aren’t convinced that you need a heating belt and don’t want to spend much on trying one out, we think you’ll like the Varadyle Homebrew Belt. This is a very basic heating belt but does a good job. We've chosen to go belts over pads for the simplicity of adjusting the height of the belt on your fermenter to increase or decrease the heat transfer. With a pad, you're unable to do this, and may potentially cook your yeast turning your hard work into a giant bandaid. Heater trays can also be used to stand a barrel or bottles on to keep the temperature up for the first few days of secondary fermentation, a 25 litre tray holds around 20 x 500ml PET plastic bottles at once.

Brew Belt / Heat Belt - Love Brewing

We highly recommend using our belt with our MKII - Temperature Controller for precise temperature control. If you're fermenting in a fridge, you can also use the MKII's cooling function as well to control both the belt and the fridge. All sizes and measurements are approximate but we do try to make sure that they are as accurate as possible.

The Brew 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 and wine making. It is designed to be used during primary fermentation and to aid the start of secondary fermentation. Limitations - The Brew Belt is continually on, it has no thermostat or control and requires manually positioning at the right height to get the temperature of the brew where you want it. A heater is a simple and easy way to have a consistent temperature during the fermentation process. Heat belt heaters are adjustable and can be set to the desired temperature range for optimal fermentation for this you just move the heater up or down, Down for more heat, higher for less heat for your home brew. How Does a Brew Belt Heater Work? One of the most critical factors to successful homebrew is fermentation temperature. Yeast likes to sit between a particular temperature range to work effectively.
