I am making a starter using an stirplate. I usually aerate the wort with pure oxygen for 45-60 seconds before I pitch the starter. Since I am using a stir plate for the starter, should I not be aerating the wort for as long or is this ok? Thanks.

I'm not sure why you think you need to aerate if you have a stirplate. It seems like an unnecessary step to me.

I don't aerate the starter with the pure oxygen, I aerate the wort before pitching the starter.

Lol. Got it. Makes sense now.

As wyzazz said. Aerate as you normally would.

Ok cool. Is 60 seconds a good amount for pure oxygen?

I would imagine that 60 seconds is more than enough with Pure O2 and a diffusion stone.
