Some of us will have to heat our Flex during the long winter months. No fear, we have the solution! The Flex heater was carefully engineered to match the heating needs to maintain set temperatures even in the coldest winter garage. We also use a built-in thermostat which stops the heater from getting too warm. This means you get a gentle warming action when your beer drops below your desired temperature opposed to rapid heating which can overshoot or 'cook' your wort.
Our heater attaches to the insulated FLEX jacket via Velcro. It is positioned near the bottom cone section of the fermenter where the coldest liquid is. This will give the most even temperature throughout your fermenter (happy yeast!).
Built in 95F thermostat to prevent the heater from overheating your wort
80 watts of power
Durable silicone construction
5' long cord
Note: Our heaters were designed to keep the wort within normal fermentation temperatures. Yeast strains (like Kveik) that require higher temperatures (90F+) may require an additional heat source.
Pro Tip: If you’re looking to ferment with Kveik yeast, we recommend taping the heater to the cone as it'll help aid in heat transfer and provide for high fermentation temps.
Great heat pad, did have issue with wire connection which Spike made right. Excellent support, continuing my use and expansion of my Spike brewing environment.
Virtual high-five for incredible customer service
This flex heater has been instrumental in allowing me to ferment multiple batches at one (as my fermentation fridge only accommodates a single Flex+ fermenter). However, it recently stopped working with a suspected thermostat error. Spike CS sent me a new one, and it's working like a champ. The reason I post this review is really to endorse the customer service team. In Canada, I am a secondary customer in that I must order through an authorized dealer. In spite of this, the Spike team sent me a replacement without the hassle of me going to my original supplier. Many applause guys.
good coverage, stays in place, works good.
First one didn’t work
First one I bought didn’t work. I didn’t realize until I already had a batch in my 32 degree garage that was oddly cold. Customer service was quick to send me a new one, although they didn’t seem surprised mine didn’t work, so they may be having quality control issues with this product. They sent the new one which works fine
Great service as always
Quick shipping and great communication!
