A yeast starter will reduce the time it takes a fermentation to begin by dramatically increasing cell count. A starter also allows you to assess the quality and viability of the yeast before pitching. The increased cell count and pitching rate will have many positive effects on fermentation including better attenuation and cleaner taste. Highly recommended for high gravity worts (O.G.>1.060) and lagers. Also the best way to ensure liquid yeast health during warm weather shipping.
Kit contains 1000mL flask, foam stopper, 1 lb DME, a 6x9 recloseable bag (to preserve remaining for future yeast starters) and instructions.
Do not apply direct heat to the flask.
