The Y450 is produced for MoreBeer. It’s one of the best everyday values in 5L flasks that I’m aware of, if not the best value. Massive 5L (5000ML) Capacity made from borosilicate glass.
At 5L you could make a generously sized yeast starter. At over a gallon this could also function as a small batch fermenter.
First of all… this Erlenmeyer is a great deal at it’s everyday price of $39.99. 5L flasks are large and generally expensive. This is a great deal.
Because of the size of this flask, MoreBeer recommends the use of a 3 gallon or larger kettle to use as a double boiler and to make moving this more safe…
“It is important for your safety to heat water in the flask with a heat source that distributes heat evenly. Morebeer! recommends using the “double boiler method.” This process involves using a boiling water bath on the outside of the flask to heat up the water inside the flask. All you need is a kettle 3 gallons or larger. This process is much safer and efficient. If the flask should break or boil over, your kettle will be there to collect the contents, thus keeping your stove clean and keeping you safe.” [full and current product description]
To encourage you to use this method MoreBeer is discounting their 5 gallon stainless steel kettle by a whopping $14.95, making it just over $20 when you buy both the kettle and 5 liter erlenmeyer. Use coupon code SAFETY1 to get the deal.
