Default saison fermentation

Looking to make a saison for the first time and looking for a way to up the temp on the fermenter, thoughts?

I use a large plastic tub filled with water and a cheap aquarium heater. Wrap the whole thing with a blanket and make sure it is sitting on something to insulate it from the floor.

Simple and cheap. Good luck.

turn up the heat in a room, aquarium pump, heating pad, brew belt, ceramic reptile lamp, light in a paint can, space heater. If you don't have a ferm chamber, put it in a big cardboard box and put the paint can light or reptile heater in it, keep away from cardboard.

I use a heating pad around the carboy, plugged into an STC-1000. But you may not need one if the pad has heating control. I then wrap the fermentor and heating pad in large bubble wrap. 4 layers + a dark towel.

I use a big cooler filled with water and an aquarium heater. Works great.
