I recently purchased one of the 7 gallon stainless steel conicals from ebay. Now I am working on building my fermentation chamber out of a spare fridge. Does anyone use a Fermwrap heater on a conical? Does it go around the upper part of the fermenter or around the cone?

Does anyone have any other methods for heating a conical fermenter?

I use a heating pad until fermentation starts. Then the problem is keeping it cool enough.

Yes I have used it on my conical. Its is much easier to wrap it on a carboy but it still works on the conical. I wrap it to the top half I never tried it on the cone part.
Next:Smoked Pilsner.
Primary:Belgian Red, American Stout w/Roeselare
On Tap:Pale Ale, English Bitter
Aging: Imperial Oatmeal Stout on Vanilla beans.

I rather owe you a dollar than cheat you out of it.."Dad"
