Now that is awesome, impressive vortex on a 5 gallon carboy.
Thanks for sharing.

Well I just picked up 7 big carboys from my great brother in law and have begun the cleaning out process. I figure what the heck after the scrubbing on the outside I filled them with some cleaner dropped the stir bar in and let them spin for a while. I did three 6 1/2 gallon carboys yesterday. Due to the difference in the shape of the bottoms I could only get them up to 400rpm with the 2" stir bar I have. I have to say though they still came out great just stirring away for an hour by themselves. I have to check ebay and see if I can find an assortment of stir bars for a good price.

Eight sided with center ring vs the shorter bars I already have, these are rather silent when operating at any speeds.
Thanks BrewBeemer those are the ones I already have. I guess since these carboys all are different brands they have different bottoms than the one I first tried and videoed. I don't think most people are worried about mixing something so big anyways I just like to play around. I did get a vortex about 3 inches deep on one of these 6 1/2 gallon carboys though at 400 rpm. I think I'll try one of the cross shaped ones and see how stable they are.

Message sent to I_B_Mongo to be on stand by. I feel we are about to have another one available.

So far we have quite a few out there and nobody has posted any results. Come on guys are we making beer yet? I've since found somebody on a mead forum that is mixing his mead for a whole week with a stir plate and it's actually finishing faster than his batch without stirring. Also he is using a huge 5" stir bar. I have a 3" and a 3/4" x shaped one on order. We ain't playin now!

Bigbeavk,
