Spike Brewing | Conical Heater
Need to heat your conical during the long Winter months? Want to make a Belgian ale with notes of pears, bananas, bubblegum, anise or even rose petals? No fear, we have the solution! Each conical has its own sized heater and the wattage of each is carefully designed to match it. We also use a built-in thermostat, which stops the heater from getting too warm.
The conical heater attaches to Spike's insulated conical jacket via Velcro. It rests on the bottom cone section of the conical where the coldest liquid is. This will give the most even temperature throughout your fermenter.
The built-in thermostat also stops the heater from getting too warm. This means you get a gentle warming action when your beer drops below your desired temperature, as opposed to rapid heating which can overshoot or “cook” your beer.
- Different wattages for each fermenter (ranging from 80w to 400w)
- Built in 95F thermostat to prevent the heater from overheating your wort
- 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.
