Heat Resistant Glove for Minding Yeast Starters

G & F 1689L Heat Resistant Glove Commercial Grade, Large

Heat Resistant Commercial Grade Glove

I use a similar type of glove (Ove Glove) when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.

Before someone brings this up: These are not waterproof. Along those lines, I wouldn’t suggest that you stick your hand in hot wort with one of these on. Or, without one of these on for that matter. I guess the take away here is… don’t stick your hand in hot wort. :)

1″ x 5/16″ Stir Bar

SEOH Magnetic Stir Bar Octahedral 1 x 5/16 new

1″ by 5/16″ Stir Bar by SEOH.  Encapsulated in FDA approved PTFE with Alnico V Magnet Core.

Use with your stir plate and erlenmeyer flask to make yeast starters.  Yeast count dramatically increases in a stir plate starter vs a non-stir plate starter.  The constant motion incorporates air, keeps yeast in contact with nutrients and expels CO2 for solution.  This all leads to higher yeast counts.
