Default Yeast starter question 2

If I make a starter, I have no stirplate can I put an aquarium pump line in and just areate in place of a stir plate? Keeping it sanitary of course with foil over the top. The bubbling taking place of the stir plate?

You will need an inline filter and make sure you have a way to clean and sanitize the air stone.

I just brewed two different beers using a yeast starter on both. You can swirl bottle or flask around to rouse the yeast and aerate. Both starters were different yeast and after I pitched the starters I got furious fermentation within 10 hours.

So you don't need stir plate then

My starters are 32 ounces of water and one cup DME and yeast, that enough?

You want your starter to have an OG of 1.04. It gives yeast enough sugar to replicate healthy yeast. I usually use 60 oz. of water and 1/3 lb. of DME
