Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Supplier...Stir plate...Erlenmeyer flask

I would like to know where I can get a flat bottom Erlenmeyer flask. Not the cheap ones that have a domed bottom like the ones Morebeer& NorthernBrewer sell. I have a hard time getting the stir bar to work with my stir starter.  It works great with the flat bottom open flasks I have. But they are to small for starters.But they work good for re hydrating dry yeast.

wow tha tis one heck of card table! I don't think I have ever seen one that would hold 160 lbs.

It seems to work to work very well. I did put a 3/4" piece of plywood on top of it. I have had 3 carboys and 2 cases of beer on it and it still seems very solid.

I have built a 32" square 24" tall box out of 1 1/2" Styrofoam .Got at Home Depot. This sits on a card table and is big enough for 4 carboys. I don't have to move them to transfer to secondary or bottling bucket. I use a 50 Watt plant starting heating pad with a Johnson A419 controller. Keeps a 68 degree temp in a 55 degree room. Works really well, also do my bottle conditioning in it as well as fermenting.
