Description

While there are certainly cheaper magnetic stir plates on the market, and we have used them, they have a homemade quality and feel. This unit is professionally made by Hanna and you will not be disappointed with the quality. This unit is protected by a fuse.

Stir plates will increase cell counts in your starters through continual aereation. A teflon coated stir bar (inlcuded) rotates in the flask to create a vortex. This keeps the yeast in suspension and provides them with large amounts of oxygen. Leave the starter on the stir plate for the duration of the starter. The INCLUDED stir bar can be boiled with the starter to sanitize. We strongly recommend using our sanitary filter, FIL90, with the appropriate sized stopper. This will keep the air that is being pulled into the flask clean of bacteria or wild yeast. We also recommend picking up an extra stir bar as they can easily be poured right into the fermenter and then forgot about when you are cleaning out the fermenter (we know this only because it has happened a bazillion times here in the shop!)

The speed is adjustable from 0 to 1000 RPM. Dimensions: 4.8"L x 4.8"W x 1.8"H

Aspiring someday to be a professional brewer so I wanted something that could translate from home brewing to professional.

Two starters for a split batch means I need two stir plates.

Good quality
The other generic stir plate that MoreBeer sells broke after a couple years of fairly infrequent use. Decided I’d pay a little more, and this is of much better quality and has more power than the other stirrer. I like the small footprint and it’s much quieter. Stirring a 2L flask with a vortex is completely silent. Great so far.

Great Stir Plate - Works with large starters
I have 2 of these, and have had one of them for about 4 years. The older one is still going great, even after being dropped on a concrete floor and otherwise treated less than spectacularly. I regularly make starters of 3 to 4 liters in a 5 liter flask on these, and they work perfectly.

Magnetic Stir Plate
It worked great; however, some literature packed with the unit would have helped. Most of the operation is intuitive; however, to avoid any misuse some documentation would have been desirable.

Decent stir plate
Bought this model 11 YEARS AGO and it's just now looking like it's feeling its age and needs to be replaced. In that time it's stirred probably 150 starters, many of them 2L. With that kind of dependability, I'll be buying another one soon.

Not very powerful
Unfortunately this stir plate did not list in the description that it was not useful beyond 1L. After opening the instructions and reading other reviews, I see it is designed for 1L and not larger. I am returning the item so that I can purchase a larger starter. I gave three stars because MoreBeer should have been better about listing specific power details in the description, but otherwise works fine.

Only lasted a year and a half
This worked fine but in just over a year the motor died. Not really that heavily used either. For the price I expected it would work longer. I wouldn't recommend this.stir plate.

Great Device
Works fine and is very quiet. Have used it 3 times for 1L starters and it does a great job.
