Love it in the winter in Central NY
I keep my house on the cooler side (low-mid 60's), and I use this to keep those yeast cells going. I plug/unplug as need to keep the temp where I need it (based on the yeast used)... Extremely handy! I use on plastic primary, secondary is usually in basement at 60 degree, which is nice for clearing and finishing.....

Just what I needed
I use the belt with a 2 stage controller in an insulated fermentation chamber. Now I have perfect temp control over my fermention. During early stages of the ferment, I can cool my carboy, and after ferment slows down the heater kicks in automatically. It's made a huge difference in my beer. Easy to use, and now I can go on vacation without worrying about what's happening at home.

Does the Trick
i prefer the Electric Fermentation Heater for more even heat distribution, but these work great too.

Semi-fragile but works ok
On my 2nd Brew Belt. House is cooler so this helps keep that vigorous primary ferment going nice and rowdy. Despite warnings, do use on carboys along with buckets and haven't had a problem. Only issue is that the wiring can pull out of plastic sleeve if you snug it up on your fermentation vessel, hence on #2 of these. Other than that it is a 5 star.

Over all good product
This brew belt does what its designed to do. I have been using mine at low temperatures so my results my be different than others. Currently I have my fridge controlled at 44 degrees for an Oktoberfest. I also have a Winter Warmer using the brew belt and its averaged 52/54 degrees. Its gives an overall 10 degree jump. Hope this helps.

technically, it works
Despite what the photo shows, the brew belt is designed for use with only plastic fermenters according to the accompanying literature. Other than that, it worked fine for keeping my batches in the mid-60s.

Can the Brew belt be used on the FastFermentor? Then power it through a temperature controller using the thermowell and then insulate the FastFermentor with a blanket.
thanks Tony

BEST ANSWER: This would work. The brew belt will fit onto the fast ferment but would not stay in place because of the angle. Well it might but I think you would want to use tape or something anti slip to help hold it in place. Spot on with the temperature controller and thermowell. You could try insulating with a blanket but I would be hesitant in case of a fire hazard.
Does this fit the big mouth bubbler 6.5?

BEST ANSWER: It should fit easily around the plastic one, and ought to fit the glass one too. You may need to adjust the spring holding the Brewbelt in some cases, but it could be adjusted to fit around nearly any fermenter. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Is it really that difficult to tell the length and width specs?
