2,000 mL Yeast Starter Kit from MoreBeer – $18.99 + free ship eligible, limited availability

Yeast Starter Kit - 2000 mL

This Yeast Starter Kit from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Yeast starters offer higher cell counts at the time the yeast is pitched, leading to faster, healthier fermentations and better tasting beer!

You may be wondering how to make a yeast starter. Well, lucky for you this kit contains everything you need for making your own yeast starter right out of the box, including step-by-step instructions!

This is the most common size used to make yeast starters using liquid yeast, great for higher alcohol beer and cold fermented lagers.

In the lab world, these flasks are known as “Student Grade,” meaning there may be some cosmetic flaws in the glass, and the volume measurements are approximate due to variations in the thickness of the glass walls of the flask. This makes it a great flask for making yeast starters–at a great price!

We do not recommend the use of an electric element with these flasks. If this cannot be avoided, we suggest using a larger pot as a hot water bath on the stove.

Homebrew Temp Controller Roundup! – Kegerator and Fermentation – concepts, applications and models

Pictured: Inkbird ITC-308 – via Amazon – Hands on Review

Temperature controllers, sometimes referred to as over-riding thermostats, can control devices like refrigerators, freezers and fermentation heating devices to provide a consistent temperature for your kegerator, fermentation chamber or brew system.  They do this by monitoring the temperature and cycling on and off the device in question.  Generally, you will set the device to full cooling or heating power and the temperature controller takes over from there.

Wired and Unwired

Unwired means.. you have to hook up the electrical wiring.  It does not come with a plug-in cord.  The ITC-1000 is an example of an unwired controller.  That controller requires some additional materials, time and know-how to get working.  Wired means… no AC wiring is necessary, the controller comes with cords that you can plug your cooling and/or heating devices into.
