I’ve never made a yeast starter, and after a possibly under pitched lager I decided to MacGuyver up a stir plate with mostly things I had around the house. I did not have anything to dial in speed control with, but it’s only running on a 5V power supply, so I’m assuming this will fit the bill. Does this seem to be about right as far as speed? To fast/slow?

That's aweaome!! Way to go McGruber!!

I think that speed is fine. Once you have yeast in there and wort, the viscosity gets a little thicker, but it looks like it will be just fine.

Don't forget to keep the top covered with sanitized aluminum foil.
