The belt was on this Carboy for 12 hours when this picture was taken.

Home Brewing in cold weather Often requires an additional heat source to maintain minimum fermentation conditions.

The Brew Belt is an adjustable, electric heating belt that wraps around a Pail or plastic carboy to keep the Beer between 70-80 degrees. We start the ferment with the belt near the top so that the ferment¬† doesn’t start too quickly, which leads to off flavors.¬† Leave it in place for 3-4 days, to allow full ferment.
