Product details

The first industrial-grade programmable magnetic stir plate designed specifically for yeast starters.

Now includes a Stir Bar Removal Tool!

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 yeast starters in a 1000ml erlenmeyer flask, all the way up to a 5-gallon carboy.

Command a massive yeast 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 creating a vortex like no other. 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 for the home brewer.

Be sure to check out our Yeast Starter Kits in 1000 ml and 2000 ml sizes.

Ok when you can get it on

Had a lot of trouble getting this to turn . Does not have a true start button . First time had really hard time getting it to start and to get magnet working . First time it turned itself off in half the time set, after fooling around with it got it going and worked really well. Just needs a true start button

Very pleased!

I have only used this once, but it's performance was excellent, and the resultant yeast starter really made a difference.

Really gets yeast going

Really gets yeast going- however, usually takes several tries to get machine to start functioning/spinning- have used for three batches and still have not figured out best way to get machine functioning/ spinning without several tries.

Stir plate

Works like a champ. Plenty of room to sit a 5L flask on there with room to spare.
