Germey said:I've used them in the lab. I can't give you real knowledgeable info for yeast culture use, but, these are more suited to an agitating, high speed mix as opposed to a gentle stir. I don't know how sturdy yeast are, but that kind of mix would be avoided in some of my applications due to damaging the particles being mixed.
No, I'm saying I don't know. Hopefully a yeast expert will chime in here, but, if I had to guess, I would say it will work fine.Mustangj said:Are you saying it would be bad idea to use this bar with yeast?

"This unique bar is designed to lift up sediment at the bottom of a vessel and mix it into a solution for through dispersion. Best used with viscous solutions."
I've thought about buying a hot plate / magnetic stirrer used from ebay for a long time. Besides using it just to stir yeast, I want to be able to use it in my darkroom to mix solutions, some of which require heating. Volumes up to two liters.Dr Vorlauf said:I have not used this for a yeast starter but have used it in the lab and it works great. It is odd that I don't make too many starters at home , but I've been banging out IPAs with US -05 dry. I have a I have a hot plate / magnetic stirrer combo at home and really should use it for a starter.
