Very Useful

Review by Brian L. on 2/8/2010

Pros: definitely cuts down the lag time from pitching to fermentation.

Cons: none

Great place to start

Review by Joe M. on 2/5/2010

Pros: Everything you need to make a starter; the foam plug is incredibly simple but amazingly effective. At first I wondered why I needed a mitt, but, having a separate one from the regular kitchen stash has proven to be a smart idea.

Economical deal

Pros: Includes everything you need for effective small-scale starters, at the price you'd normally pay for just a 1 L flask. The antifoam works as advertised, and the foam stopper has the advantage of allowing your starter yeast to be grown aerobically (if stirred).
