Default Bye my stirbar for at least 4 weeks

Although I reminded myself 20 times during my brew session yesterday (Belgian Wit Ale aka no hoe in das gaarden) not to pitch the stirbar with my yeast I did anyway. Also dropped my glass thermometer right at the end. Time to invest in double of all these essential items I guess. Sadly I cannot blame the home brews I was enjoying since I am still building a pipeline but I can blame the plethora of franziskaner weissbier. Hey, I need the bottles.

This morning I am happy to report an active airlock from my first washed yeast wlp400. This successful ferm start I attribute to my newly built stir plate, the fact that I placed the yeast flask right next to a speaker playing them a choice selection of 'The Head and The Heart' and 'Graveyard Train' tunes and my passionate pitching speech of encouragement before I sent them off while avoiding dropping a tear in the fermenter.

If it's any consolation, for some retarded reason I placed my erlenmeyer flask down on the floor as I was cleaning after brewing today and promptly kicked it across the room. Awesome way to cap off an otherwise flawless brewday!

That makes me feel marginally better, thanks!

HA! I did the same thing this weekend. And that's why I have two stirbars. One tip - Put a note on your fermenter so in 4 weeks you remember it's in there and don't chuck it with the trub.

If you have a second stir bar or a strong magnet, you can "capture" the stuck stirbar from the outside of the carboy/bucket, pull it up the side and carefully grab it - I do this all the time in the lab where I work.

+1 Rare earth magnet! Pull it and drag right out. Piece of cake (or yeast).

Piece of yeast cake! I've done it many of times and now I believe it makes the beer taste better!
