The Freakin' stirplate is complete...

The other day Freak and I came to the conclusion that we needed to get back to using liquid yeast and repitching for our upcoming batches. (We have been using dry yeast because it is cheaper than using 3 or 4 packs of liquid yeast and we have not taken the time to do starters over the last several months.) We decided that to get the most out of our starters we needed a stir plate. If you've never seen one they are pretty freakin' cool and they are also a good way to greatly increase cell counts for yeast starters. I started looking around online and found lot's of info on building one for around $30.oo. Here are some pics and a quick video clip of what I built. Let me know what you think. "E"
