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.
RiteBrew does a periodic Wyeast Pre-Order. You get your choice of any strain of Wyeast yeast that they carry, regardless of stock level. You also get shipment from fresh stock right when it comes in. You can order other items as well, however, your whole order will be held until the yeast arrives and is quickly sent out.
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.
From the product description… “This equals faster starts, better flavors, and more insurance that your beer is going to turn out well. Double the yeast for just a little more money. Smart brewing.” GigaYeast also has a Vermont IPA strain available,
