Has anyone ever used a brew belt to increase the temp? I've made several batches of skeeter pee and without the brew belt it takes forever to ferment. With the belt, it takes around 4 weeks from start to finish including the back sweetening to end up with a very smooth 10% ABV.

Update: was feeling impatient as usual. There was 0 sign of fermentation after about 30 hours. First pitch was hydrated ec1118. This time I made a starter with 1/4 cup dextrose, pinch of nutrient and some apple juice. About 1 hour and she was havin a party. Every 30 mins after that I added 100ml of the juice from the primary till 400ml. Left for another hour. Tossed into primary. 3 hours later it sounds like a bottle of pop. Fizz crackle pop. No lid bulge or airlock activity but I think she's cruising.

I was wondering if I could throw this on top of a beer yeast slurry. most likely American ale yeast and the beer would be a cream ale.
