Maelstrom® Stir Plate
The first industrial-grade programmable stir plate designed specifically for yeast starters.
Breed a Herculean army of yeast for brewing bigger beers than ever before. Powerful rare earth magnets churn through any size starter and never throw a stir bar. Five-speed control adapts to sizes from minute to mammoth, for starters in a 1000ml erlenmeyer flask, all the way up to a 5-gallon carboy.
Command a massive starter while you're at work or over the weekend. Let it run indefinitely or program up to 48 hours of stir time. Schedule it to settle out yeast just in time to come home and brew.
Watch Maelstrom® surge through starter wort. The transparent body shows the magnets whipping through rotation. Plus, the seamless surface makes for easy cleaning.
Easy to use with an intuitive interface, the Maelstrom® sets the new standard as the most powerful and versatile homebrewing stir plate ever created.

Works as advertised. Easy to use, strong magnets never throw the bar. So far it has performed flawlessly!
having problems using it, tried to use it with last week with the big stir magnet and couldn't get it to spin. I will try again
Great stirrer. Strong magnet. Well made.
All the difference in the world!
It works well, but hard to get the stir started with the bar either just sticking to the bottom and shaking or bouncing all over the place. But once started it's great. Can't imagine running it any faster than level one though. That's fast enough and the other settings just aren't needed.
