This kit includes a 2000ml Erlenmeyer Flask, Foam Stopper, Anti-Foam, Safety Mit, and 1 pound of Dry Malt Extract as nutrient (enough for 6 800ml starters). Our Yeast Starter Kit is unique in that it includes food grade Anti-Foam and a bacteria filtering foam stopper, so you can boil the nutrient in the Erlenmeyer Flask on a stove without the nutrient foaming over, reducing the chance of infection. Because Anti-Foam is included, starters can be made to 800ml to 1200ml volumes in the included 2000ml flask.
A gas stove is recommended for the Erlenmeyer flask, as electric burners can cause the glass to crack.
Order a stir plate (see link when you put this in your cart)to increase yeast growth and activity.
