4.7 / 5.021 ReviewsExcellentI purchased this size flask for making yeast starters for 5 gallon batches. Easy to clean with large opening. Highly recommend it.May 22, 2012great for smaller startersHundred and one uses. Nice to boil right in the flask. Great tool for brewing.February 17, 2013Chemistry FunThis flask was a great addition to my brewing supplies and has come in handy for other random chemistry experiments I have done as a side hobby. Washes out well with BPW Midwest sells too.February 18, 2013Great addition to the kitThis trustworthy flask makes it super easy to prepare a small yeast starter for 5 gal batches. I have used it to prepare about a dozen starters so far. You can place it directly on the stove to boil the water/DME (watch for boilovers!) and then chill it in minutes in an ice bath. Easy to clean and pretty sturdy. I definitely recommend this item.March 6, 2013Just what I neededI'm trying my hand at brewing high gravity ales, 1.12 OG Barleywine, and need a healthy robust yeast to finish fermentation. Yeast starter was the most economical way of going about it. This flask was just what I needed to create my starter.March 30, 2013just what I neededI'm trying my hand at brewing high gravity ales, 1.12 OG Barley wine, and needed a robust yeast to finish it. This flask is just what I needed to create the yeast starter I needed.March 30, 2013Yeast starters made easyPut 100 g of DME in the flask with yeast nutrient, add water to about 900 ml, 1 drop antifoam, put directly on your gas stove and boil for 10 mins, put in an ice bath in a gallon bucket until cool to the touch, add yeast and you have a 1L starter. Much easier to do than trying to boil in one pot and transfer to a different vessel while your yeast multiply.April 21, 2013Handy for the jobI'm glad I got one of these,as I use it every brew. It makes hydrating dry yeast packets in 400mL of luke warm water a breeze. Def cleaner & neater which SWMBO likes as well. I make 800mL starters for liquid yeast vials in it with plain DME & they're def plenty of yeast cells to get a 1.074 wort going steadilly the next morning. Cleans out easilly with your bottle brush & warm water. I set mine over the center stalk of my vinator atop my bottle tree to drip dry before storage. Get one...you know you want to!November 26, 2013Can withstand gas burnerI make starters on the gas top. Not only does the flask hold up to the heat, I then put it in the sink filled with water to cool (after letting it sit on a towel for a couple of minutes to coll down). Its big enough to comfortably hold a one liter starter, but you have to watch out for a boil over.December 31, 2013Get a stir plate and make good startersI make a starter everytime I brew. This fits on my stir plate and hold a liter of starter mix. Just beware of boil overs.February 17, 2014
