What is the benefit of taping a heating wrap (like a Fermwrap) to the freezer wall rather than around the fermenter itself? I never thought of doing it this way--I just wrap the fermenter. It has worked fine for me, but maybe this other approach has clear advantages?

You're regulating ambient temperature, just like you do on the cooling cycle of your controller, nice and gentle, and you can have multiple vessels in the chamber.

One benefit is that last time I touched my heat pad was when I taped it to the wall inside my freezer.

Right. I "read" beer temp, and adjust the ambient
