Product Details

Add to the flask when propagating yeast on a stir plate. Can be boiled in the flask along with starter wort. Always a good idea to have spares on hand in case you pour the stir bar into the fermenter along with the starter! 50 mm size is best for 2000 or 5000 ml flasks.

Great Stir Bar
I bought a few of these. My friend and I both love them.Quiet and I have no problem with it throwing on my home made stir plate. Drop it in, put it on the plate and turn up the speed it naturally centers and creates a beautiful vortex. Not sure why others have had issues.Works great for me and my mentor brewer.

Works Great
I'm real cheap I guess so I built my own stir plate and used this stir bar. I can easily put a vortex straight to the bottom of a 1200 ml of water in a starter due to it being more viscous it makes it to the bottom just not a violent.

Great for large flasks but....
I have only used it twice so far and it's worked but because of its size it gets thrown off the magnet a lot. I'm sure there is a trick to it but it's mildly annoying having to reset the magnet bunch of times while stirring a yeast starter

Does the job too!
I purchased this along with the yellow cylinder stir bar with the centering ring. This stir bar does not throw and makes less noise once I reduced the voltage to my home made stir plate. I recommend it.

Thrown every time. weak magnets?
I've had no luck w/ this on a homemade stir plate.I tried having my rare earth magnets from weakest to ridiculously strong (opposite polarity on each end to mate w/ stir bar's polarities), right below the surface of Ehrlenmeyer flask, and FLING to the side it goes every time I start it.

Not a fan
Maybe its because I dont have a NB stir plate but this puppy will not spin more than two revolutions before throwing. I think its flat sides may cause this. Not NB's fault just a poor designed item.

This Stir bar has Corners
I figured all stir bars were cylinders, allowing them to spin freely on a stirplate(less surfae contact with the glass=less friction=better stir bar.This bar is a rectangle with partially rounded ends. It does not stir consistantly and jumps around in the flask. It creates no movement in a 1500ml starter and is LOUD. Switched back to my regular 25mm cylinder stir bar. Terrible product. DO NOT BUY.

Doesn't work
I lost my round 25mm stir bar so I went to the LHB shop to replace it. I've been having the same problems everyone else has been having with this item, so I'll be ordering the round 25mm ones with my next batch.
