Hey guys,

I was wondering if this would work instead of a stir plate? Seems like it would be easy to clean and sanitize.

If you could put it on a dimmer switch to slow it down.

Yeast respond well to a slight stirring...

...pulling 4 G's, not so much, unless it's space yeast.

You know...freeze dried, like space ice cream?

Buzz Aldrin won't drink any beer that isn't made from it I hear.

Compelling, given the price. I'm not sure it would clean easier since it looks like it has a blade inside. And it looks like it only takes AA batteries - how long will it run?
