Mine arrived over the weekend. Haven't used it yet, but after reading about the sagging bag, I got an idea. Cost me all of about $3 and 30 minutes of my time (now that I have the dimensions, it can probably be made in about 5-10 minutes). I wanted something a bit more sturdy than just a cut off soda bottle.

I bought 10' of 1/2" inch PVC and 6 elbow joints. Cut four 13" pieces and two 23" pieces. You could just as easily do a square around your carboy, but I was trying to do it with fewer materials, so the triangle worked. You could also reduce the shorter a pieces a bit and still get the same results (I'll probably end up doing this).

Looking forward to using it for the first time this week. I just had to dump a 5 gal bunch because my temps got too high.

Nice idea but I'm not put off by the tilting bag at all. And, you can use a plastic cup on top of a pail fermenter if you use one.

Great idea! I bet if you had the dimensions of the PVC pipes when you went to home depot or lowe's they would cut the PVC for you. Then putting it together would take only a few minutes.

Hi, So far the Fermwrap heater is working great with our Cool Brewing Cooler! With my current testing the Fermwrap alone is rising the wort temperature around 20 degrees over the room temperature. When placed in the Cool Brewing Cooler with the Fermwrap it is rising the wort temperature a consistent 40 degrees over the room temperature. The cooler seems to be holding up great so far to the heat! I will follow up in another 2 weeks just to make sure it holds up well to long term heat.

This is pretty cool.

You might see two 10gal rubbermaid coolers hit the HBT classifieds coupled with an order for two of your coolers!

Just ordered one. I discovered this past weekend that I suck at building things with insulation foam. This is what I managed to come up with trying to build my SoF:



Excited to use this instead, should be much easier, and less of a headache

Used my cooler on my current batch. I've just been using a few of those cold packs and am easily keeping temps down where I want them.

On top of that, I ordered another one today, and I had a tracking number from UPS in about two hours. Great product and great service.
