Recently I bought a ssbrewtech conical half bbl. I bought the brewmeister edition so witch coil for cooling and a insulation jacket. I didn’t buy the heating kit because it is really pricy. Instead I bought two heatbelts of each 30 watts. I looked up that the heating pad from ssbrewtech is about 60 watts, so with my two belts I should be fine I thought.
Now I do a testrun with water in the conical. With the heating at 100% I dont see anything happening with the temperature. The heating belt is mounted as low as possible but the legs of the conical are pretty high so the belt is as well. The belts are working, I checked.
Now is my questen: For sure I am not the only one with a conical with heating, how did u guys do this? How many watts, what kind of heater?
