The Stirstarter Yeast Stir Plate 

Looking for a gadget that will improve your beer? Use The Stirstarter!!

This unit has two powerful NdFeB button magnets in the 12 VDC stir motor, which is controlled by a precision voltage regulator for easy speed adjustment. The RPMs of the drive motor are limited, so the motor will not "throw" the stir bar, yet it provides enough to get a good vortex going. A low voltage (110v), plug-in wall transformer provides power to the unit. The black plastic case dimensions are 6" x 4" x 2", large enough to accommodate a 2000 mL flask . A Teflon coated 1" x 5/16" stir bar is included

 (2" stir bars are too long for this device, while we have had success using the 2" bar, it will be "thrown" from the magnet when the motor is at high speeds, "why would you turn your stir plate to higher speeds?" you ask. We aren't sure, but the coffee at McDonald's is hot whether the word "HOT" is printed on the cup or not)
 
A "keeper" magnet is also supplied to lock the stir bar in place while the
yeast is pitched, so the stir bar won't end up in your fermenter!

*Erlenmeyer flask sold Separately

Worked Great
First time ever using a stir plate. It worked like a charm. Sure beats "swirling" the flask every time I walked by it. This is almost the home brewer's version of "Set it and Forget it."

Great Service
This thing works great. I had a starter going for 2 days and never had problem. I live in TX and these guys always get my orders to me fast.

Works well, good price, great product
Dan did a great job with these. And it's great to support a DIY homebrewer. The Stirstarter works well at a great price. AIH gives the option to add rubber stopper and airlock. If you're propagating yeast, don't do this. Yeast need air.

Stir Plate
This stir plate is a great value and a wonderful addition to the ever growing arsenal of homebrew sundries. I noticed a huge difference on the first IPA I brewed using this stir plate. Had bubble action within 4 hours. Worth the $$$$$.

Works great
Used this to make a starter for my 1.095 Imp Stout. Worked perfectly. The only thing I would change is the catcher magnet should be a little larger. I can see that thing getting lost. Oh well, then I'll finally have a use for those refrig magnets...

A must have in your home brewing arsenal
Great tool. Reliably runs around the clock completely noise free. Would not pitch yeast without using it anymore. Awesome value for the price. Go get one!!!

Gets the Job Done
As advertised. I have been able to use three times, and has worked well at 500ml & 1200ml without issues. I have left the starter going for over 48 continuous hours leading into brewday. Yeast has been happy & healthy, lag time was under 3hrs & ferment is still going 7 days later.

Buy now!
Built my own stir plate which started acting up, I ordered this as a replacement so I can fix my other one. This works so well that I am keeping my home built one as a spare.
