I had set up a 5 gallon rum wash a few days ago. It was bubbling furiously until I checked on it tonight. Stuck. I stored it in our old kitchen downstairs (it really isn't heated). It's been cool down there these past few days so I figure I should get some sort of implement to heat my future experiments.
For $30-shipped I was able to pick up 2- 2 square foot reptile heat tapes with the cords. It is the same set up as the Ferm Wrap sold at the brew sites for $30 without shipping costs. They are 20w /foot -- just like the Ferm Wraps. I work in the pet trade and when I saw the Ferm Wraps, I knew exactly where to get something cheap.
