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

Shipped with a packing pad to avoid damage. Please remove lid to remove pad. Replace lid when pad has been removed.

Great support
My little stir plate didn't work when I got it. There was an issue with the magnets rubbing against their housing. But I must say Dan stepped up to the plate right away and made things right as rain. So you'll have support behind you. And the new one I got is a pretty nice little unit. Much better than hand stirring. Definitely worth getting.

This is the best way to make starters
This is the best way to make a yeast starter. For the past year, I gave my 1.5L starters a good swirl whenever I walked by. I just made my first starter with the stir plate and it makes a big difference in the growth rate. I pulled off 350ml for my next batch and it has twice as much yeast as my previous batch. This is a quiet and effective way for making yeast starters.

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 $$$$$.
