Yeast Starter Kit

Yeast Starter Setup from Adventures in Homebrewing

From AIH: “The most important part of brewing is high quality active yeast. The best way to ensure you have active yeast is to build a yeast starter. This kit includes everything you will need to build a quality starter and ensure a fast start to your fermentation.”

This kit includes:

  • Keeper Magnet – used to lock the stir bar in place while the yeast is pitched so it won’t end up in your fermenter.
  • 2000ML Erlenmeyer Flask
  • Bung and “S” Shape Airlock
  • One Wax Glass Marker
  • Stir Starter Stir Plate
  • Anti Foam Drops
  • One Pound Light Dry Malt Extract

Note from HBF: I’ve used the StirStarter for years and it has worked very well for me.  I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you.

As of this posting, this combo is marked down $16 to $59.99.  Check product page for current price, description and availability.

Limited Time Flat Rate Shipping: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing is offering $4.99 flat rate shipping on most orders of $49 or more with a few exclusions.  See AIH’s terms and conditions for full details, but this does bundle with many of their existing sale items!  No promo code is needed.  Applies to lower 48 US states.

It’s Back! East Coast Yeast ECY20 BugCounty!

East Coast Yeast

East Coast Yeast‘s Mission is: “To provide new, fresh, liquid cultures for your special brewing projects. Specializing in artisanal yeast blends and pure yeast strains long forgotten.”

East Coast Yeast is… is difficult to find in stock. Depending on the strain the needle moves from difficult to find in stock to nearly impossible.  That’s a testament to ECY’s popularity.

love2brew is one of a very few homebrew shops that stock ECY at all.  Their stock is typically scarce.  When strains become available they usually don’t last long.

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

The hard to find and rarely in stock BugCounty is back in stock as of this posting, I have no idea how much they have or how long it will stay in stock.  Check the product page for current availability.

East Coast Yeast BugCounty ECY20 : “A mixed culture of wild yeast and lactic bacteria to emulate sour or wild beers such as lambic-style ales. Over time displays a citrus sourness and barnyard funk profile. Contains yeast (Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces) and lactic bacteria (Lactobacillus, Pediococcus). The Brett population is typically >50% of the culture pitch. The blend of strains change every calendar year for those who like to blend or have solera projects. The 2016 version contains a wild Saccharomyces yeast, four brett strains, various lactobacilli and Pediococcus.”

MoreBeer’s OxyWand .5 Micron Oxygenation Stone and Wand – $21.99, Best Price, Limited Supply + Hands on Review

Oxygenation Wand

MoreBeer’s OxyWand!  26″ long stainless steel oxygenation wand.  .5 micron sintered stone.  1/4″ flare fitting means the OxyWand can be easily disassembled for cleaning and sanitizing.

From MoreBeer: “Yeast across the World have a new best friend, the OxyWand™. Insert the oxygenation wand into your fermenter and pump in thousands of microscopic oxygen bubbles for 1-2 minutes to improve the health of your yeast. Healthy yeast produce amazing flavors and have the stamina to completely finish fermentation.”‘

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

That is not the only reason yeast love the OxyWand™. Yeast hate to compete with bacteria and you hate to drink them. Sintered stainless stones are made of tightly compressed stainless steel powder to create a porous block through which oxygen can flow. This micro maze is also the perfect environment for bacteria to live in after the stone has been used once in wort. That is why we love to boil our stones prior to use. The stone on the OxyWand™ is connected via a 1/4″ flare fitting and can easily be removed and cleaned after use and then boiled before your next brew day.

The assembly is 26″ long and will easily reach the bottom of glass carboys, dropped into stainless conicals, Speidel fermenters, etc. The 0.5 micron size stone is designed specifically for use with compressed oxygen tanks. You will want to use 1/4″ tubing. See the recommended regulator below to connect to disposable style compressed oxygen cylinders available from your local hardware store.

The advantage of using compressed oxygen to oxygenate is speed – you can oxygenate your wort in 60 seconds as opposed to 5 minutes with aeration. This .5 micron stone can only be used with compressed oxygen because an aeration pump does not supply enough pressure. If you are looking for an Oxywand to use with aeration pumps please see the 2 micron version.

 

Check out our Hands on Review of the OxyWand – note, the review features a slightly different combo.  It’s the same OxyWand, the difference is the addition of an O2 regulator in the reviewed setup.
