I was given a 5000 ml flask. What will be a good stirrer to use? The stir starter plate recommends up to a 2000ml.

A 1.5 hp Cruise & Carry outboard motor.
I've spun a 2" stirbar with almost 6 litres
on a home made muffin fan stir. It works
you don't need a tornado inside.

I have a 4L and I get an equally good vortex with a 1/2" and a 2".

I like the larger bar because it spins a lot slower. Note that my DIY stirplate had to be modified to work well with the 2".

No but close. It also doubles as a weight for my hopsack in the keg to keep it from floating.

***********1. Enforce rules only against their foes (i.e., anyone who does not suck up to them) while exempting their friends from similar or worse behavior.

2. Silently boot someone and then proceed to trash talk the person as if the person was still there with an opportunity to respond.

3. Boot someone and then start a thread for the sole purpose of boasting about having removed the person, so as to bask in the praise of sychophantic members applauding the moderator's bold action.

4. If a person is being stalked or trolled, scold, warn and threaten both the victim and the perpetrator to stop it. If the victim protests, boot the victim for having defied the moderator's authority. Add injury to insult by allowing the troll or stalker to stay because the stalker or troll didn't talk back to the moderator.

5. If the moderator loses an argument to another member, selectively delete the member's comments so that the thread no longer makes any sense.

6. Selectively enforce the tribe's rules only against newcomers, newbies or people who are not friend with the moderator.

7. Speak about their actions as moderator in the passive voice, use the royal we, and otherwise take on a haughty, authoritarian tone. I mean, dude, you're just a moderator. ***************

I ended up getting the stirstarter.com plate. He said people can use the 5000ml on it, and can perform with it full.

I ordered 3 stir starters last week and asked about the 5l flasks. He said that they work fine with them but for $8 could use a large box.

The standard stir starters are 6x4x2, but for the $8 extra he can make one with a 8x6x3 box.

Here is the info he gave me showing the 5l in use.

Right on the front page under March News, there is a link for "See the StirStarter in action with a 5 liter Erlenmeyer flask."
