Thanks to HBF Reader Chris for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

FINNKARE Long Cuff BBQ Gloves, Heat Resistant Gloves, Grilling Cooking Gloves, Protective Gloves for Oven Mitts, Pot Holders, 1 Pair

Pair of long cuff heat resistant gloves.

I use a similar type of heat resistant 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.

These are not waterproof.  Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.

7 Stir Bars – $8.99

7 PTFE Stirs bars ranging from 10mm to 35mm.

Use these in combination with an Erlenmeyer Flask and Stir Plate to make a yeast starter.  A stir plate… keeps yeast in constant contact with nutrients, encourages CO2 to off gas and continuously incorporates oxygen.  All of that means higher cell counts.
