    Do you think wrapping the thermostat sensor with heat tape would work versus investing in a

    an existing ...

    I did a side by side tasting of my Old World Pious vs Westmalle 8 and Rochefort 10. I had
    brewed the Old World on March 30 and then bottled in July, so still a little young in the
