Description

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.

Instructions:

  • 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 you need to use fermaid k or any yeast nutrient to the starter with this?
Chris Burger on Mar 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No just add 16 oz of distilled water and your yeast and you are good to go. You will need to mix on a stir plate in a flask with the top covered in foil for 24 hours so plan ahead.
Do I have to use sterilized/boiled water for the 16oz of added volume??
Jeremy Reed on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Bottled water is an easy source of clean product.

Very convenient, used it to start 4 Wyeast packs that were over a year old. Took about 2 days to start working but got them off to a good start
Very convenient, ready when you need it, I used it to start 4 Wyeast packs that were over a year old. Took about 2 days to start working but got them off to a good start. My new packs took off sooner and started working as soon as I put them in the wort. Recommended to anybody that wants a good starter.

While you could totally save money by boiling up some dme, for me the time saved is worth the $ of the canned wort.

Hi Paul - That's great to hear! A lot of customers are enjoying the time savings. Should you go back to traditional starters, AD290 Fermcaps work great for taming starter boil overs.

Time Saver!
This caned wort is a real time saver! It's concentrated so add the appropriate amount of water to reach your desired specific gravity. I use it for starters and it's a real time saver. Don't forget to sanitize the can opening.

I'm hooked
I thought this was something worth trying but that it wasn't worth the price. Then I tried it and after not having to babysit boiling DME and cooling before pitching a starter I can't see going back. A little StarSan on the can and some distilled water is all I need and get a nice little chunk of time back. Definitely worth trying and deciding fior yourself.

Holy Yeasy starter
I love making yeast starters.....NOT. This can saves an hour, prevents boil-overs, leaps tall buildings in a single bound. Exceptional product that made a perfect starter A+++

Great product! Will buy again!
This stuff is a game changer! So easy and works great. I made a starter using this with White Labs WLP029 German ale/Kölsch yeast. It only took 3 minutes to make the starter. White labs recommendations that you don’t ferment this yeast lower than 62° I was able to ferment my Kölsch at 58° SG 1.059 FG 1.008 after primary and diactal rest! I am pretty impressed!
