Erlenmeyer Flasks on Electric Stovetop? Yeast Starters Using the Double Boiler Method

Yeast Starters on Electric Stovetops Using the Double Boiler Method

It is important for your safety to heat water in the flask with a heat source that distributes heat evenly. Morebeer! recommends using the “double boiler method.” This process involves using a boiling water bath on the outside of the flask to heat up the water inside the flask. All you need is a kettle 3 gallons or larger. This process is much safer and efficient. If the flask should break or boil over, your kettle will be there to collect the contents, thus keeping your stove clean and keeping you safe. – via MoreBeer
