Description
 

The Nor'Easter magnetic stir plate (stirring platform) features a large 8" x 8" stainless steel platform to support just about any size flask you want to throw at it (up to 5 liter) The smooth surface also makes cleanup a breeze if the starter happens to blow out.


Features:

Dimensions: 8" x 8" x 3"H
Grounded 3-prong plug on a 38" long cord for use with 120 volt household circuits.
Power On/Off switch with indicator LED.
Rotary knob to smoothly select speed of stirring.
Rubber feet to minimize walking on smooth surfaces.

Required but not included:
Vessel to hold your yeast starter such as our 2 liter Erlenmeyer Flask (or any vessel smaller than 12" diameter with a generally flat bottom)
Teflon-coated magnetic stir bar between 1-2" in length. Stir bars with lengths outside of this range will tend to get thrown more easily at high speeds. Over the years we've found that it's best to have an assortment of stirbar lengths with and without the center rib because there is no one size fits all. Sometimes the bottom of your vessel and what kind of curvature it has makes one bar better or worse than others.

Stirbars can be found here.

This item is also included in our yeast starter master kit elsewhere on this site.

5 of 5 Great Stir Plate--Very reasonable Price December 8, 2020
Reviewer: Dan from Cape Coral, FL United States  
As of now I have done two large (4.5 Gal) starters. The stir plate has had no problems keeping a vortex and my yeast happy!

5 of 5 Stirs Keggle HLT June 6, 2020
Reviewer: Curtis Kendall from Windsor, CA United States  
I've had this stir plate for a while and been very happy - great for yeast starters in a as large as a 5 liter flask.

While thinking about a new HERMS setup, I tried a 2" spin-bar in my Keggle HLT.  Wow, it works great! I use a Bel-Art spin-bar with an ALNICO V magnet, which probably helps.

Reviewer: David Frausto from Roseville , CA United States  
Well built,.  Wanted a stir plate that was sturdy enough for my 5l flask.  The Nor Easter fits the bill!

5 of 5 Stirring away with ease May 17, 2018
Reviewer: Scott from Maine  
This is a great stir plate with a nice large surface to hold the 5L flask and plenty of power. The included instructions to set it up were easy to follow. Had it stirring away within a matter of minutes.
