Works well - 5 star kit with 2 tweaks
I would have given a 5 star if it weren't for 2 thing (which I'll mention later)

Pros: It keeps the temps perfectly in line in a cold basement. Kept at 68 degrees with only a 1 degree variance in 61-65 degree ambient temps. The harness works great, and was very easy to carry. The Electric Fermentation Heater fits perfectly around the fermentor (bubbler) between the top and bottom straps of the harness. Siphonless valve works great, and it stays above the trub. When it came to bottling and cleaning, I didn't have to do too much work. Gravity did all the work for me. (No autosiphon BS)

Cons
I had seen the warnings about having to tape the cover down. I did tape it with 2 pieces of packing tape that were taped with about 3" on each side, and it still exploded with the airlock.

Protips:
Use 4' of 1" tubing that goes into a bowl of sanitizer for blowoff, and shoving it into the dual port top instead of using the 3-piece airlock. This fits perfectly.
Use more tape to tape down the Lid. Tape the entire side if you have to. Make sure it doesn't lose adheasion when it gets heated up.

FermoTemp for the Big Mouth Fermenter
The temperature controller did a great job of holding my Ale at 68 degrees F, even though my garage went as low as 29 degrees this winter!

How does this system work to keep the beet from getting to warm?
A shopper on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as your fermentation vessel is in an area that will not exceed your maximum fermentation temperature (like a hot garage), the temperature controller will kick on the heat blanket when it needs to warm up to the temperature you set on the Johnson Controls unit. It's important to note that this will only heat up your liquid and will not cool it down to keep it at the temperature you set on the controller.
