Many home brewers don`t pitch nearly enough yeast. This stir plate helps you culture higher cell counts of healthy yeast for quicker fermentations lower risk of infections and better tasting beer. All this in less time than it takes to make a conventional yeast starter. The StriStarter Stir Plate is less expensive that laboratory grade stir plates because is made just for yeast so unnecessary and expensive features can be eliminated.

A starter is necessary for a number of reasons:

  • Variable storage temperature or using yeast close to its `use by` date diminishes the viable cell counts in a liquid yeast.
  • Low pitch rates may result in infected finished beer higher than normal final gravity excess production of objectionable flavors caused by fusel alcohols esters diacetyl and sulfur compounds.
  • A starter allows you to step up the cell counts to the appropriate level for the style you are brewing. As wort gravity increases the need for more yeast increases
