Fermentation Kit
Great Product, Product performed just as expected/advertised. I bought this kit and 2 extra wraps which I control with the single Thermostar (using a multi outlet power strip). My kit came with the smaller temperature probe (shown in picture) and the longer 12 inch probe. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 stars is because... In order to use the kit with a glass carboy or big mouth bubbler type fermenter I needed a double drilled bung (one) for the Airlock (and a 2nd) hole in the bung for the Temp Probe which was not provided with the kit, nor does Midwest Supplies even sell the bung, and therefore I had to find that through another online merchant. Perfect product for dialing in and controlling your desired temp for fermentation.

Basement chill B gone
The ability to move my carboy or primary fermentation bucket to any part of the house is fantastic

Easy & simple way to increase fermentation temperature
Easy and simple way to increase fermentation temperature for your beers that require higher fermentation temperatures like Belgian beers. Easy to use and basically maintenance free. I would recommend this product. The first time I used it, I was able to attenuate my Saison down to 1.000 and that is the absolute truth!!!

Fermentation Help
The thermostar and heating element that goes around your carboy is extremely easy to set up and does an excellent job in keeping your fermentation at the temperature that you desire.

Great temp controller
I have not used the fermentation heater yet so cannot comment. I use the temp controller to keep my mini-frig at fermentation temps. That is working perfectly.

Winter fermenting
This saved me $20 over buying the individual components. I can also use the controller if I ever make my own fermentation chamber from an old freezer.

Keeps it Bubbling ..
I got this a few weeks ago and it is in use right now .. quality is what you would expect from the controller and wrap, i was concerned about the thermowell and stopper since thats what people seem to comment on most here - they seem fine so far for me. I am using this setup in a glass 5 gallon carboy and it fits but the stopper is flush with the top of the opening but it is a good fit and the airlock is bubbling away and the temp is steady. _x000D__x000D_one thing i would suggest maybe since people are obviously buying the combo to use for heating is that the controller be shipped with that jumper set to heat instead of cool from midwest and it include some specific directions for this setup. _x000D__x000D_and this is a great deal .. i am thinking about buying another one of these setups!_x000D_

All good but the stopper
All good except for the The Stopper Thermowell since the stopper is too small that even will loose into the 3 or 5 G carboy._x000D__x000D_I will recommend Midwest Supplies to change the size of the stopper or change the manufacture of the product.

What is the temp range on this item. Does it get to 110 or 120 F?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In theory yes, but in practice in winter it won't heat a 5 gal plastic carboy that warm.
I don't see any mention of using this with a specific stopper, since I'm a bit ignorant here I'd like to know what else I need to complete the set. Thanks
L D on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There's not a specific stopper that you need for this. If you want to suspend the temperature probe in the beer

you can run the probe through the stopper hole before inserting the airlock. Alternately

you can tape the probe to the outside of the fermenter.
can i use this with a glass carboy?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes with the five gallon size water jug with the small opening, with a two hole cap. either i have a defective unit but the heat wrap wont work with the thermostar.
How big is the heating wrap? Does it go all the way around the fermentor?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The heating wrap does not completely go around the Big Mouth fermenter, but does cover most of it. I secured it to the fermenter with either electricians tape or duct tape to make good surface contact. It has done a great job at maintaining the desired temperature.
Will this work on stainless fermenters?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I am not able to help as I used the wrap on plastic pales. I would guess that it would work on metal as well, but have not tried it.
Will this work with a jacketed catalyst fermenter?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2017

Do not use this item with insulation on both sides, so I would not use this with a jacketed catalyst.
I have a deep freeze I would like to start lagering in, is this kit all I need to solve my needs?
T O on Jun 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is; or you can just set the freezer up with any of the temp controllers to be able to hold the temperature where you want it. With that "Fermentation Kit" you also have a heating wrap and long probe intended to be used to keep a carboy warmer than the surrounding area; or you can set up the long temp probe in the carboy in the controlled freezer to monitor the internal temp of the carboy, for more precise lagering temp monitoring. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
