Just got a stir plate and not sure how wild I should get with it.
A nice little whirlpool or as fast as I can get it without the stirbar getting stuck? Thanks in advance...wnc

I make 1.5L starters and my vortex is about the size of a dime. It should keep things moving so the very small vortex introduces aeration to the starter.

Just a small dimple is fine..... Just enough to keep things stirred up.
