A quality product
Easily maintains 6 gallons @ 70 degrees in my 55 degree basement. Solidly built (it's rigid, not soft). You MUST use a temp controller to regulate the heater!

Use with a temperature controller
Its useful in a cold basement, with a temperature controller so you don't over heat the yeast. Make sure to place the fermentor on an insulated panel, not on cold concrete.

Works well for me...
This pad works very well when used with a Johnson digital temperature controller so that it only heats when necessary. I use mine in a chest freezer with one controller for the freezer and another controller for the heat pad under a carboy. I tape both of the temperature probes taped to the side of the carboy. I can keep lagers fermenting very precisely at whatever temp I choose. Not a cheap set up but it sure does work well. I wish that it was not quite so expensive.

Works great with a controler, but a bit pricey
I have this pad paired with a Johnson a419 controller and have been extremely happy with it's ability to keep a 5 gallon batch at a target temperature. I keep my carboy inside a converted wine cooler, whcih provides insulation--and this heater has no problem holding it at 5-15 degrees above ambient temperature._x000D__x000D_As other reviewers have pointed out this really *must* be used in conjunction with a controller so that it doesn't overheat your beer. That said it's not a cheap setup to combine this with a controller, but it is a sturdy piece of equipment that I expect to hold-up well with use._x000D__x000D_My only complaint is the price--it would be 5-stars across the board if it were competitively priced around $30, but I'll be content if it lasts a long time.

heat pad
You MUST use a heat controller with this pad! Otherwise, you will boil your brew.(well not quite that hot). But when used properly, it does keep a safe and consistent temp in the carboy. Just what I needed for my basement!

A good heating panel
It's worked well for me this winter. _x000D_It maintained temperature in a narrow range in my cold basement._x000D_I duct taped the probes to the fermentor, to keep it accurate. _x000D_You need a temperature controller too, so it doesn't overheat.

Use with a temperature controller
I have a temperature controller to keep the beer within a narrow temperature range (the swing is .5 degrees). It generates enough heat if you keep the fermentor wrapped up.

Wouldn't keep the beer warm
Mines in the bottom of the keezer and it could not maintain the temp. Keezer and the pad are on two separate Johnson controls. I broke the ferm wrap back out to maintain the ferm temp.

Works with duct tape
Get a good temperature controller, attach the probes, and secure it and it works. I used it all last winter and am getting ready to use it again. It has no problems maintaining heat, and it you put it in a styrofoam box, it will not need to go on much.

This product seemed to work well with a fermenter or carboy housing a 5-gallon batch, if a bit on the warm side; but it killed my attempt at a fermented-out root beer(1.5-gallon batch) when the temp in the fermenter spiked at 82 F overnight! A test with one of my thermometers showed the unit operating at a constant 100 F! Maybe the Kiwis have bred out a yeast that ferments at that high a temp, but I've yet to see an example of it...

BEST ANSWER: It's about 11 inches square, a perfect size to sit a bucket or carboy on top of. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
