Product details

A yeast starter is one of the easiest and most dramatic ways to improve the quality of your homebrewed beer. A single pack of yeast often does not contain enough cells to ferment a beer properly - especially higher-gravity beers and lagers. Use this yeast starter kit to grow your yeast cell count to the proper pitch rate. Achieve the ideal attenuation in your brews.

Propagating a single pack of yeast using our yeast starter kit exponentially increases the number of cells you pitch. With a higher pitching rate, you will see a shorter lag phase, lower amounts of fermentation-related off-flavors, and less incidence of bacterial contamination in your beer.

Preparing a yeast starter is easy - you mix a very small batch of malt extract wort (without hops), briefly boil and chill it, then ferment it in a flask a day or two before brewing the main batch. The yeast cells from a single pack of yeast will reproduce in the starter, increasing in number from a few dozen billion cells to hundreds of billions.

The 1000 ml yeast starter kit is a great general-purpose size for five gallon batches. It features a heat-resistant borosilicate glass flask, a foam stopper, one pound of DME, and complete instructions.

Simple, great results

Making a starter is so easy—it just requires a little extra planning. Highly recommend for brewing better beers. Just be careful... I broke my first flask. Totally my fault for not slowing down while handling glass.

Don't buy the 1000ml because you'll immediately want something bigger. 2000ml is the smallest you'll ever want and you'll probably want to go bigger than that.

Very pleased

Everything showed up on time and in good condition. I’ve run two starters through it and had wonderful results. At first thought I the 1000ml flask was too small, but it ended up being just right.
