Making a yeast starter is essential for proper pitching rates and reducing lag time when fermentation begins (this greatly minimizes the chances of bacterial infection in your batch). Starters will supply more yeast than your standard vial or package. Erlenmeyer Flasks are the ideal vessel to make a yeast starters! The stir plate features an on/off switch as well as a dial for speed control. Standard 110V Power.

  • 2L (2000ml) Borosilicate Glass Erlenmeyer Flask (Upgradable to 5000 ml)
  • Magnetic Stir Plate with 1" Stir Bar
  • 1lb Briess Golden Light Dry Malt Extract

Why make a yeast starter?
Yeast starters ensures healthy yeast. By creating a yeast starter 1-3 days in advance of your brew day, you ensure that your yeast is healthy and strong enough to do its job. Secondly, the starter creates more yeast. This increase of the cell count will give you a better chance of keeping bacteria's and wild yeasts from fermenting in your wort. If you are planning to brew a high gravity beer (1.060+) you will need more yeast to start the fermentation faster. High gravity beers will also have a better chance of completing fermentation with ample quantities of yeast (less chance of stalling out).
