The OP sounds somewhat like my disaster of adding dextrose to apple juice bottles to make a batch of apfelwein. I forgot I didn't have a funnel before I started and tried making a makeshift one using aluminum foil. The entire kitchen somehow had a coating of corn sugar after I was done.

Speaking of which, I just remembered I still don't have a funnel, so I just ordered one from Amazon.

anything sticking to the neck of the flask will drip down to the bottom while it is boiling because of the condensation from boiling. I add one drop of fermcap-s and no more boil overs!

I mix it up in a 2L measuring cup, then pour into the flask to boil on the stove (Fermcap is key). Occasionally I've boiled the starter in a large pot then poured it into the sanitized flask, which is probably safer and eliminates the need for Fermcap.
