StirStarter Stir Plate eBay

StirStarter Stir Plate for $42 + Free Expedited Shipping via eBay.  Includes Stir Plate, Stir Bar and “keeper magnet” (helps you retrieve stir bar after use).

I’ve used the StirStarter for years and it has worked very well for me.  I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you.

More Info

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.”

eBay Seller hausotterted has appeared on HBF many times.  We have received great feedback on this seller.

Periodically hausotterted takes there entire store offline.  I’m not sure why they do that, maybe they are traveling or maybe they are swamped.  Either way, If it’s a way to ensure timely processing, I think it’s a good thing.  It’s probably part of why they get such great feedback..

Anyway they are back with a bunch of 2015 (and more) offerings and bundles.  Their listings feature either free shipping or flat rate (all you can ship) $5.95 shipping.

$100 Sears Gift Card for $80

Looking through eBay’s Daily Deals I found this Sears gift card offering.  It gets you a $100 gift card for $85 with free shipping.  That’s a 15% savings.  Getting on on these would be great, if you’re in the market to pick up a Deep Freeze (or other Sears items).  It’s the equivalent of 15% off with the possibility of stacking discounts – sale + coupon code + $15 off per gift card.

An example of a past freezer deal… The 7 cu FT 12702 deep freeze.  It sells for $289.99.  It was marked down $120 to $169.99.  A promo code was available that took another $5 off.  If you bundled that with a $15 gift card savings you’d be at $149.99.  That’s a total savings of 48%.  Note that Sears gift cards also work at KMart.
