From the description…

“Here’s good news for all you beer home brewers. YOU don’t make beer; your one-celled friends called yeast do all the work! That’s why happy, healthy yeast is the cornerstone of good brewing practice. You can make sure your yeast is ready for action in the fermenter with a magnetic stir plate. I built one and like it so much I have decided to build more and sell them to the home brewing community at a fair price. I call my version the StirStarter.

Home brewing discussion forums are full of details on how to make your own stir plate with used spare parts like hard drive magnets, computer fans and old cigar boxes. It’s a fun weekend project and if you’re mechanically inclined it might even work!

But if you’re not ready to invest the time and effort to build and perhaps troubleshoot your own creation, let me do the job for you. I am a registered professional electrical engineer and I have spent many hours improving the design of the StirStarter. My eBay seller status, 100% positive feedback and obsession with customer service means you can buy with confidence!

The StirStarter comes complete with stir bar, operating instructions and a “keeper” magnet to lock the stir bar in place so it won’t end up in your fermenter when the yeast is pitched!

For detailed product specifications, yeast starter info and helpful construction hints if you want to build your own, do a Google search on the word StirStarters.

The StirStarter will be shipped via Priority Mail after the receipt of your order. The StirStarter is guaranteed forever. If it fails to perform for ANY reason, ship it back to me for repair or replacement at no charge.”

    I bought a rare earth magnet stir bar for my stir starter and have had zero problems with the stir bar getting thrown, made a huge difference. The stir bar that came with it was nothing special. I have a 3L flask which is perfect for 10 gallon batches in my opinion.

    My StirStarter totally failed me yesterday. Plugged it in and it immediately started running without the knob turned on. Fiddled with the plug and the part in the box broke off. Also it wouldn’t confidently spin 5L and often threw the magnet. I think this one is el cheapo

      Hey Paul, I’d suggest getting with StirStarter as these have… a lifetime warranty. They also make a 5L version if you’re wanting to use a 5L Erlenmeyer flask. These are not lab quality units, but… IMO they are well built and suited for homebrewing. I’ve used mine for years and consistently here great things back about them and about their customer service.
