Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Need advice on stirrer plate
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:50:52 AM »
I just put my DIY Stir Plate project to use tonight.

Under $30 bucks from start to finish.
Pictures?



Fan 4.05 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007JPNE7A/ref=ox_ya_os_product
Flask 14.56 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BLOHVK/ref=ox_ya_os_product
Stir Bar 7.33 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VBW5HW/ref=ox_ya_os_product
Rare earth magnets @ Wally World 4 each in a blister pack for 3.79
8X10 piece of acrylic at Lowes 1.79

I had the hardware and the 12VDC power supply on hand.

The acrylic is enough for two.
The fan with four magnets creates a good vortex in a 1L flask.

I still have some Cyser left from Thanksgiving, and I've got 3 lined up to get through the next couple of weeks.

An Imperial Stout that I infused with nibs and vanilla bean in the secondary.
A Pale Ale 100% Otter and Citra
and Lastly a Holiday Spiced Ale.

I'll get my spring offerings nailed down during the Christmas Break. I have a sparkling cider that'll be ready, and I have everything for a rye. Have to figure out what I want for St. Paddys day.

Have a Good Christmas everyone! ;D

A Pale Ale with no name yet and possibly AHB's Millennium Falconer.

I'm a fan of champagne yeasts as well for cider.

Another Mr. Beer guy here! circa 1996-7.

Made some halfway decent swill with it too!

I want to try and brew the Vida Dulce from BYO mar/apr issue.

If not I'll bottle some for a contest and move a few around.

This is my first time so not much help here, but I'm going to try zig-zagging the bines up and down from the ground to 8' and then back down...and repeat over and over.

If all grows as planned, I'll post up some pics as it goes.

I didn't get too much of the alcohol bite at 10%.

I have nothing bad to say about this beer other than I probably won't get any more this year!

I always seem to miss it...not this time. ;D

I bought the last 4 pack in Dover.

Statewide there was only 10 cases allotted...maybe when the new site in NC goes operational we'll see more of the seasonal stuff.

I wrap the carboy with an ace bandage and put the temp control probe on one side and the external thermometer on the other. Works like a champ!

Snowtiger...sorry thats kind of misleading I was on vacation and broke my leg.

Broken leg = termination from company. I was prepared to stay awhile longer, like until 2014 and retire really early.
