StirStarter Bundle Deal from Bell’s Brewery

homebrew stir plate

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 $71.20.

StirStarter Bundle With 2L Flask and More – $71.20

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.

120mm 3 Speed Fan – Stir Plates and Kegerator Circulation

TriCool 120mm Cooling Fan with 3-Speed Switch from Antec

Possible uses include… putting together a DIY Stir Plate and using this for a recirculating fan in your kegerator – See: Kegerator Beer Line Temperatures & Reducing Foam with a Recirculating Fan  The three speed switch may come in handy for a DIY stir plate build.  Depending on your setup, it could possibly negate the need for a speed/control potentiometer in a stir plate build.

I’ve been told that the three position speed switch works for a stir plate on a smaller model from Antec…. from HBF Reader Dave : “Have used this for a stir plate setup… totally don’t need a potentiometer (speed controller) – just use the high-med-low.”
