Hello,

I'm getting back into kombucha making and I'm looking for a way to warm up the brew since my house is pretty cool right now. The best looking thing I have come across is the "kombucha mamma year round heating system with dimmer" which is made and sold in the US.

I'm hoping people on here have tried it so I can get some input on if it's worth buying before ordering it.

Any input is much appreciated,

Graham

Its looks OK, its $85. You could also put your fermenter into a bucket or other container and use a sous vide stick. You could then use the souse vide stick for cooking or for Brew in a Ziplock bag beer brewing. Here's an example for $79, but there are many others available.

I found a reptile heater with rheostat for I think 12$ on amazon , was like 3 years ago. It keeps the 2.5 gal crock at 78* in a 60* home.

What temp is your house?

I've brewed booch down at 65F.

One option is to wrap your fermenter in an insulator and keep the heat that it produces.
