Yeast Starter Kit

The most important part of brewing is high quality active yeast. The best way to ensure you have active yeast is to build a yeast starter. This kit includes everything you will need to build a quality starter and ensure a fast start to your fermentation.

This kit includes:
  • **NEW** Now includes a keeper magnet used to lock the stir bar in place while the yeast is pitched so it won't end up in your fermenter.
  • One 2000ML Erlenmeyer Flask
  • Bung and "S" Shape Airlock
  • One Wax Glass Marker
  • Stir Starter Stir Plate
  • Anti Foam Drops
  • One Pound Light Dry Malt Extract

Building a starter is nothing more than making a small batch of beer. I like to use the anti foam drops to ensure I do not have a boil over on my stove. The wax marker is perfect for dating and identifying the yeast used.

Well worth it!
If you've never bothered with creating a yeast starter, you really should. These only make sense when not using dry yeast (dry yeast should just be re-hydrated), but it makes a real difference. And this kit is inexpensive but not cheap. The flask is just a bit too big for the stir-plate, and it slides a little, but I put a paper towel under the flask and it stops the sliding problem.

Good buy
I have been using this starter kit for years. It is the only way to brew a big beer and have enough yeast. The design is simple and the quality is very good. No regrets buying it.

Glad That I Purchased
Was on the fence deciding whether to buy this model or one from a competing manufacturer. Very happy with my purchase and would do it over again.

Starter for life!
What an incredible difference a yeast starter has to your fermentation. I went from a 24 hour lag time to about 2 hours with a starter. The only issue I have is with myself and why I waited so long go buy something like this. The product is of high quality and the service is 5 stars as well. If your not using a starter wait no longer and make this purchase today.

Best price for yeast starter kit around
I made my first yeast starter this weekend and everything in the kit worked great. The 2000ml flask is a bit big for the stir plate but it sits on it without wobbling. The stir plate itself is nothing fancy but compared to other home brew supply stores the kit price can't be beat. Highly recommended.

Fast Fermentation
This was my first time using a yeast starter. It was extremely easy to use, fun to watch :) and got a DIPA homebrew batch fermenting with a couple of hours. I am very pleased with the results, and highly recommend the product. I found it odd that the kit comes with a stopper and airlock, although the instructions recommend not using it. In the end, I simply covered the flask with loose-fitting foil, and that worked fine.

Awesome kit
Got this setup to step up my homebrewing and it did exactly that. This was a great way to improve the flavor of my beer. I also have started harvesting my yeast after I brew each beer which has started to save me money!

Bubbling Like Crazy
The yeast starter kit that I had ordered worked out great and it got the fermentation of my most recent batch of an American pale ale off to a great start. My air lock was bubbling like crazy! The stainless steel quick disconnects look beautiful on my new brew kettle and I will definitely be adding them in with my orders as I expand my setup for all grain in the near future! Thanks again AIH!

Very Satisfied
The yeast starter kit is now my favorite it''s made pitching my yeast less of an apprehensive endeavor. Now I''m positive I have a good quantity of healthy yeast cells to quickly start the job of fermentation and hence prevent infection of the wort. I''m very satisfied with all of your products I''m especially happy with your service your quick response to my questions and concerns coupled with fast shipment of my orders makes doing business with you a pleasure! Cheers.
