Propper Starter™ is condensed wort in a can, allowing you to make a yeast starter in minutes! No need to make a mess in the kitchen measuring out DME, and no need to waste time boiling and cooling before you pitch your yeast. Simply open a can of Propper Starter™, pour it into your flask along with 16 oz of bottled or distilled water, then add your yeast. It's that simple!

Comes in 4-packs. One can of Propper Starter™ with 16 oz of water will make a 1L starter with a gravity of 1.040. It is recommended to use the 1:1 dilution rate, regardless of the original gravity of your wort.

Making a proper yeast starter will offer higher cell counts at the time the yeast is pitched, leading to faster, healthier fermentations and better tasting beer! They're especially recommended for lagers and any beer that has an original gravity of 1.060 or higher.


  • Sanitize flask, stir bar, top of can and yeast pack
  • Swirl and open can, then pour contents into flask
  • Add 16 oz of bottled or distilled water to flask
  • Pitch yeast and swirl flask to mix
  • Add stir bar to flask, cover with foil, and mix on stir plate*

Recommended Use:

  • For high gravity beers (1.060 OG or higher)
  • For cold pitching lagers
  • For yeast packs that recommend a starter
  • For yeast packs nearing expiration
Ingredients: water, barley malt extract, yeast nutrient
Shelf life of 12 months. Refrigeration not required.
*Note: the use of a stir plate is not required for making a yeast starter, but is highly recommended, as it will further increase cell count through continuous aeration. For recommended stir plates and Erlenmeyer flasks, see below under "You Might Also Need".

BEST ANSWER: We recommend that you store these at room temperature for up to 12 months. You can keep it in the fridge if you would like but you do not need to.

Making Yeast Starters Easier
This cuts down on the steps for making a starter so it's perfect for anyone - especially if you're making your FIRST yeast starter. Pick up a 4 pack for best value. I might see if I can find a case of this stuff.

Bonus: I decanted the fermented beer from my starter and tasted it. A nice pilsner-esque beer flavor. SG: was under 1.010. It was pleasant to drink.

Excellent way to make a starter
One pitch-pack with this and super clean beer. Fantastic.
Just don’t pay $5 for it.
I’ve always been too lazy, so this stuff makes it super easy.
My beers attenuate much better.
