Went Crazy Review by Seamus Brewing

(Posted on 9/1/14)

Product Rating:

Picked up the 2L Starter kit to do the Hop Lord extract kit. So, I stired up a 2L starter. It went crazy! After approximately 13-14 hrs the thing looked like it was going to Blow Out. Used WL California Ale Yeast WLP001. I am guessing I am going to need to rig up a blow out tube when I pitch this later today (9/1/14).

As I've progressed in my brewing I've learned that a yeast starter is necessary for some beers. This is a good kit. I personally like the 2L flask because I just out it directly on my stove and boil the water for the starter in the flask. It sanitizes the flask again and removes the possibilities of any little microbes finding there way to it during transfer. Besides that the foam stopper works just fine. You don't need to get a rubber one, but I like the look of the rubber one.

Good sized flask Review by Red

No point in getting the 1 liter flask because there will be times you need more yeast. This is the kit I bought, along with a stir plate, to grow starters.

Good sized flask Review by Sample

Product Rating:

The flask has some extra head space that helps prevent boil overs. i don't think the measuring lines are accurate because they don't match with my measuring cup. I'd measure volumes with a cup, then pour them in.

Great Starter Kit Review by Brian

I had brewed a few lagers with just using the smack packs and it worried me I wasn't pitching enough yeast... and I wasn't. Never had any trouble, but this took away all the worries. Very easy to do and the instructions are simple to follow. Might only get a couple starters out of this kit. Be ready to buy more DME.

the foundation of good beer Review by JD

Product Rating:

Making a starter gives you 2 - 2.5 times more yeast, resulting in less chance of a stuck fermentation, and yeast that's ready to take off and combat any competing micro-organisms in the beer. This simple step (use a stir plate) will help you make better beer.

Everything you need Review by Bobert

This has everything you need to make any size starter. I used the kit along with my homemade stir plate to bring some 2 month old washed yeast back to life. I had my porter bubbling away within 4 hours and had to hook up a blow-off tube by the end of the day.

It's all there. Review by Joel

Everything was as described. The flask I got did not say kimax or pyrex on it so was a little nervous pouring boiling liquid in and then straight to water bath but nothing bad happened the first time I used it.

Can handle any sized beer Review by OD

(Posted on 9/29/13)

Product Rating:

The 2 liter is big enough to handle any 5 gallon batch. If brewing a lagger you have to step up. But it can handle 10 gallon batches. Good value for the money though the flask is not top quality.

The 2L flask is more useful than the 1L Review by Sanjay

Product Rating:

I strongly recommend a stir plate in addition, then you are all set.
You will end up making larger starters so this is the kit you want, not a 1 Liter flask kit. The flask itself is just average and not as good as some of the better flasks I've seen. Its thinner glass and the measurements are slightly off.
