StirStarter Stir Plate – $42 + Free Shipping

StirStarter Stir Plate eBay

StirStarter Stir Plate via eBay.  Includes Stir Plate, Stir Bar and “keeper magnet” (helps you retrieve stir bar after use).

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

More Info

From the description…

“Here’s good news for all you beer home brewers. YOU don’t make beer; your one-celled friends called yeast do all the work! That’s why happy, healthy yeast is the cornerstone of good brewing practice. You can make sure your yeast is ready for action in the fermenter with a magnetic stir plate. I built one and like it so much I have decided to build more and sell them to the home brewing community at a fair price. I call my version the StirStarter.

Home brewing discussion forums are full of details on how to make your own stir plate with used spare parts like hard drive magnets, computer fans and old cigar boxes. It’s a fun weekend project and if you’re mechanically inclined it might even work!

But if you’re not ready to invest the time and effort to build and perhaps troubleshoot your own creation, let me do the job for you. I am a registered professional electrical engineer and I have spent many hours improving the design of the StirStarter. My eBay seller status, 100% positive feedback and obsession with customer service means you can buy with confidence!

The StirStarter comes complete with stir bar, operating instructions and a “keeper” magnet to lock the stir bar in place so it won’t end up in your fermenter when the yeast is pitched!

For detailed product specifications, yeast starter info and helpful construction hints if you want to build your own, do a Google search on the word StirStarters.

The StirStarter will be shipped via Priority Mail after the receipt of your order. The StirStarter is guaranteed forever. If it fails to perform for ANY reason, ship it back to me for repair or replacement at no charge.”

 

As of this posting, this great stir plate is selling for just $42.  Expedited shipping is free to most US addresses.  Check the offering description for up to the minute price and availability.

Muntons DME at Bell’s General Store – $2.50/lb

Muntons Plain Light Dry Malt Extract (DME)

Bell’s General Store has all varieties of Muntons DME on sale.  1 and 3 lb sizes in light, extra light and wheat varieties are included in the sale.  It’s marked down to just $2.50 for 1 lb packages and $6.50 for 3 lb packages – that figures to just $2.16 per lb.  This is a… bargain!  If you’re an extract brewer… you could, of course, use this as your primary fermentable.  Beyond that, keep some DME on hand for yeast starters and gravity correction.  This is a limited time sale, that applies to stock on hand.  I have no idea how many of each of these are in stock, but my recommendation is to buy sooner rather than later.

Update: all of the 3 lb offerings have sold out.  A few 1 lb offerings are still available.

Munton’s DME at Bell’s Brewery General Store

30% Off Centennial Pellets:  As of this posting coupon code CENTENNIAL30 takes a whopping 30% off lbs of Centennial Hop Pellets – CENTENNIAL HOPS – 1 LB PELLETS – remember promo code CENTENNIAL30 – Note: Since the DME sale doesn’t require a coupon you can get in on both sales on the same order.

Flat Rate Shipping: As of this posting Bell’s Brewing General Store is shipping most orders of $50 or more to addresses in the contiguous 48 US states for just $5.  Bell’s has some great prices and availability on hops, malt and extract, kits (including straight from the brewery clone kits) and some gear.  It’s great to see this $5 shipping promotion to go along with their already great offerings!  No coupon code is necessary.
