Home Brewing

These bottles are suitable for secondary fermentation and are designed to withstand pressure, however it is important to take care before bottling and, ideally using a Hydrometer, check for completion of primary fermentation so that bottles aren't under too much pressure which may distort them.

It is recommended to store home brew out of the light especially if using clear bottles to avoid any chance of the contents being affected by UV light.

Heater for Home Beer and Wine Making - Suitable for Standard 25 Litre Fermenting Vessels

Keeping your home brew at the correct temperature is essential to ensure that it not only starts fermenting but also to ensure it ferments completely and all the sugars are converted. This will leave you with a clear, correctly carbonated brew with the correct alcohol content. 

Heating devices are used throughout the primary fermentation stage and also to start secondary fermentation. Using a heating device for your homebrew will also ensure that the process of fermentation is completed quickly, enabling you to enjoy your beer and wine as soon as possible!

Achieving correct, constant temperatures is easy with our range of economical heating devices.

25L Fermenting Vessel Heater Tray
Fermenting tray designed specifically for 25 litre containers. Constructed to withstand the weight of larger vessels and with the correct power output. Also suitable for demijohns and wine making. Thermostatically controlled to maintain a liquid temperature approximately 9 deg C above ambient room temperature, giving a fermenting temperature of 22-29 deg C in most domestic environments. If the temperature is in excess of 20 degrees C (during the day for example) the heater should be switched off. Regular checks should always be made to ensure that the correct temperature is being maintained. Detachable power lead for ease of cleaning and storage. 230 volts 25 watts.

Dimensions of usable heat surface approx. 280mm x 280mm
Low Wattage/Economical
Controlled Heat
Thermally Insulated Base
Safe for Glass or Plastic Containers
Easy to clean
Heater On/Off Light
Size: 31cm
Best used with vessels not larger than 28cm at the base
Uses 25 Watts

Please note: This heat pad is thermostatically controlled at a preset temperature and isn't manually adjustable. Not be used in direct sunlight, with the vessel covered or in a room with a high ambient temperature. The temperature must be regularly checked to ensure the correct fermenting temperature is being maintained. For accurate temperature control, use in conjunction with the Inkbird ITC-308 Plug N Play Digital Temperature Controller.

Whilst this heater tray is ideal for use with Home Brew Online fermenting vessels, it is not suitable for use with a Coopers DIY branded starter kit as the fermenter does not have a flat base.

We use Parcelforce and DPD for our courier deliveries and the parcel usually needs to be signed for. If for any reason you are out or unable to take the delivery, the couriers may attempt to leave your parcel with a neighbour for you and put a card through your door. If they are unable to deliver the parcel, when possible it will be taken to your local Royal Mail sorting office or Post Office, or they will re-attempt delivery the next working day for you. A calling card will be left with details of where the parcel is. Estimated time slots will be introduced soon to help with delivery. You can enter an alternative shipping address at the checkout such as your place of work, etc, if you know you will be out, or we can add a delivery note to your parcel such as 'Please leave with a neighbour' or 'Please leave in porch' if you email us any specific delivery instructions after placing the order and we are more than happy to add them to your parcel for you. Parcelforce and DPD will follow any instructions whenever possible but it is at the discretion of the delivery driver and cannot be guaranteed. Orders left in a place specified by the customer are at the customers own risk.

IMPORTANT - For urgent orders you must select the tracked courier option, the Royal Mail service is slower and can in some cases take much longer. In the case of any problems courier deliveries can be resolved much more quickly. Please always check at your local sorting office where Royal Mail will take any parcel they cannot deliver for any reason.
