Good info! I place my 6.5gal plastic fermenters and 5gal Better Bottle Carboys into soft bag coolers ("Thermal Tote" -Pic attached) to help control temps. Would there be any issue/concern with using the TGH Heat Tape or a 'Ultratherm Heat Pad' (low watt) inside & likely touching the side of the bag? If not, what size would you recommend? FYI, we spend winters in southern AZ so doesn't generally get that cold here.

Since I also just completed a STC-1000 Temp Controller build, I though I would use it to control the heat?

Thanks for any help!
