Hanna Stir Plate

Hanna Stir Plate

Item currently out of stock

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

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

How well does this perform with a 5l Flask?
David M Frausto on Mar 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Meh. It’ll work but probably not ideal. That being said I still do it when I need to. And don’t bother with a longer bar, it’ll throw it unless you run really slow. I run pretty slow normally, but long bar slow I found totally not practical.

Easy to use and quiet. A great way to keep your yeast aerated.

Great for starters
I have only used it once but it worked great even with my giant 5,000ml flask. This was my first time doing a starter this way. I have to say it's way easier than coming by and stirring every once in a while. seems to be a very solid unit so we'll see if it's still running in a few years.

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.
