StirStarter Bundle Deal from Bell’s Brewery!

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

Bell’s Brewery General Store has the whole bundle marked down to $66.20.

StirStarter Bundle With 2L Flask and More – $66.20

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.

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.
