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.

Yeast starters 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".

Do I no longer have to add yeast nutrient at the end of my boil?
Michael Kauder on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I sure would. Get yourself some servomyces packets and off ya go!!
Do I have to use sterilized/boiled water for the 16oz of added volume??
Jeremy Reed on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you do. You don't want any evil bugs ruining your beer.

Made My Life Easy
Add the Starter, add the water, mix, add your yeast. It's that simple.
I'm so glad that I no longer have to heat water and malt in a flask , cool to room temperature, refrigerate, and warm it up just to pitch my yeast. That's too much babysitting for me.

Great product
I ordered 4 6 packs to share with my brew buddies.
I used for a 1L starter of WY1332 & the results were terrific!
Almost blew the airlock off my fermentor in under 12 hours!
Very easy to use and a timesaver as well.
