10 Pack of Stir Bars – $15.89, $1.60 Each

SEOH Magnetic Stir Bar Plain PTFE 6 x 25mm Pack of 6

10 Pack of Magnetic Stir Bars by SEOH.  PTFE 6 x 25 mm (about an inch).

Use along with an Erlenmeyer Flask and Stir Plate to do Stir Plate Yeast Starters.

Why a Stir Plate? The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.

I have this stir bar and it works great.  DIY Stir PlateThe vortex to the right was created with the help of this stir bar.  See: The HBF Stir Plate Mounting-Thingy for more info.

StirStarter Stir Plate Bundle – everything you need to Stir Plate Starters

homebrew stir plate

This deal gets you everything you need to start making stir plate starters…

  • StirStarter Stir Plate – I’ve used the StirStarter for years and years.  It has worked very well for me.  I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you.
  • StirStarter Magnet Keeper – use to hold your stir bar in place or easily remove a stir bar
  • 1″ Magnetic Stir Bar
  • 2,000 mL/2L Erlenmeyer Flask
  • 1 lb of Muntons DME – I use metric for easily figuring how much DME I’ll need.  Divide the number of milliliters you need by 10 and you have the number of grams of DME you’ll need.  1 liter (1,000 milliliters) = 100 grams of DME
  • Carboy Cap (fits 2L Flask)
  • and Yeast Nutrient

Why a Stir Plate? The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.
