1″ x 5/16″ Stir Bar – $4.56 Shipped

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.

2/3/16 10:30 AM Central: This highly rated stir bar is selling for $4.56.  Shipping is also free.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Small, fresh batch of ECY Available – Flemish , Saison Blends, BugCounty, Dirty Dozen & More

cln_ecy

East Coast Yeast specializes in artisanal yeast blends and pure yeast strains of long forgotten and difficult to find yeasts.

Availability of ECY is sketchy at best.  It’s my understanding they are a small operation.  When pitches become available they generally sell out quickly.

love2brew is one of a very few homebrew shops that stock ECY at all.  They just announced the availability of a small batch of ECY including Flemish, Saison Blends, BugCounty, Kellerbier and Dirty Dozen.

This search sorts by availability – Available strains will show up first.  Shipping is free with a $75 order.
