Did the job - but has limitations
I used this for my first batch of home brew. I was concerned about keeping the proper fermentation temp during the winter in my "oldish" house here in Seattle. I did not want to leave the heat on in the house during the day while at work- so I bought this to provide heat and regulate the fermentation temp.

I think the main limitation is it did not provide enough heat when I was fermenting in my basement. My basement was 50-55F and I could not get my ferm temps to 65F with this unit. I even tried insulating around the heater and ferm bucket- but that only helped a bit. The unit only provide 35 watts of power - so that is not enough (especially if you think of it as a 35 watt lightbulb trying to heat the fermenter).

Second limitation, it does not wrap completely around a std 5 gallon bucket fermenter - the unit is not long enough.

But, once I moved the fermentation up stairs to the "warmer" part of the house - it worked fine. The upstairs was 55-60F degrees during the day and the unit worked really well. BTW, I paired it to ThermoStar® Dual-Mode Digital Temperature Controller and both worked quite well.

So- yes I would recommend this unit - but with the limits I have noted.

Cheers

BEST ANSWER: No. I tried it. Doesn't make enough contact and had to tape it on. With the conicals i made a fermentation chamber out of styrofoam and put a heat lamp in side.
Is this large enough to work with the Catalyst Fermentation System?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The height of the Catalyst is about 10" so this is a bit to tall to fit.
