Default Yeast starter idea

So I was thinking if I used http://www.amazon.com/Polypropylene-...0219269&sr=1-2 and then attached a small pump with a hepa filter then a foam stopper on the top, with a stirplate would have some crazy starters... Any thoughts?

Completely unneccesary......IMO. Aerate the starter wort....add yeast and slap it on the stir plate........

It is a pretty cool idea though.....keep the creative thoughts flowing.

Cheers

If you do, you ought to do one with and one without so that you can compare something about the two....like ammount of yeast generated in milliliters....time it took to ferm out the starter....stuff like that....and then decide whether it was worth the extra trouble for what was gained.....my thoughts anyway.
