(LAB510) Stir plates are the best way to maximize yeast growth when making starters. With constant agitation, yeast cell contact with the wort is maximized, improving sugar and nutrient uptake to allow for more rapid growth. Any carbon dioxide is driven out of solution resulting in less stress on the yeast, and oxygen is continually available to allow for optimum cell membrane synthesis which means healthier yeast. Starters made with the stirring method are ready faster and typically contain a much larger cell count then standard starter methods. Stir bar is included. Overall surface dimensions are 4" x 6". Glass Flask is sold separately.
