Brew Your Kombucha Tea Safer and Faster With This One Step
Ideally kombucha should be brewed around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Lower temps are ok, but kombucha brewing really should not dip below 70 degrees because that's where safety concerns come into play.
During winter, especially in colder areas, it is recommended to leave the kombucha heating mat on constantly. During warmer seasons you can try cycling with having the heat on during the night (when temps dip down), and off during the day. This can be done for you with either a timer or if you want to get fancy pants a thermostat.
Here's What You Are Going To Get
Here's What It Will Do For You
Note: This kombucha heating pad is a seedling mat from our good friends at hydrofarm. after carefully selecting and testing various heat mats, we have found that the gentle and constant increase in temperature as well as the easy of use and cleaning, makes this the best kombucha heating mat for home brewing in most climates and seasons.

I just saw that Stan wrote that he uses it for the secondary ferment when bottling.. so do I and it is great!
I have a box that is the same size of the heat mat and just palce the heat mat insude the box laid out flat and I can fit about 12 wine bottles filled with kombucha on top.
I have made it before using the heat mat and can tell you it is like a whole new kombucha bot in fizz and in taste!

I use this kombucha heat mat when I go to bottle my kombucha tea. I find that the extra heat on the bottled kombucha keeps the yeast active to eat the sugar and create that extra fizz in a shorter period of time.
Just thought I'd let people know as it is really diverse and can be used for both!

I really like this heat mat. I got it a few months after getting my Kombucha Brewing System to help with the colder months, and it has been great.

PRO - great price, easy to use, easy to clean, raises my brewing temp about 8 degrees
CON - no thermostat, will not be good if you need to raise your temp past 10 degrees.. at least where I live.

The Kombucha Heating Mat ended up saving me money b/c I stopped raising my heat so high in my room.

the kombucha heating mat is very easy to use.
at first I placed it under my jar but when I really need the heat during the winter months, I WRAP it around and it works wonders!

the KHM (kombucha heater mat) is a great way to keep your kombucha at optimal temps.
I also enjoy the video instructions!

I got this heat mat for free with my Deluxe Brewing Package and love it. Very easy to use and clean.

Decided to purchase this when I got my culture so I had everything at once.
Like that the heat is even and does not get too hot, like it will burn my hand or something.
on my 5th batch and so far its been great.

I have tried everything you can think of (one time I put the kombucha brewer in the oven to keep in warmer... BIG MISTAKE, as t needs to breath too).
Anyway this is by far the best bang for your buck.
Speeds up my brewing time without making the temp too high.

I would have loved for this to come with a turn off switch instead the only way to turn it off is to unplug it.. which si fine, except my plug is behind the counter so it is a bit of a pain to do it.
The good new is that I don't do it that much b/c my brewer loves the extra heat during the colder months and the thing works great!

I got this included with my super deluxe brewer but thought I'd write a quick review.
it is really important to make sure your kombucha does not go below 65 degrees (according to Dave's, plus many other sites, PLUS my own personal experience of brewing before I got the brewing system and did not have a heat mat).. I LOVE this heat mat... so easy to clean and fits perfectly around the brewer.

I purchased a heat mat form Dave and getkombucha back in 2007, and have been using it every year when the temps change.
Never had a problem with it, and it is very easy to clean.. just use a damp paper towel and you are good to go.
Recommended for people in colder climates

I have been using this for over two years now and it definitely helps, especially with the colder months.
