Foam Stopper-Starter

(1/2) > >>

bendbrew:
I will be making my first starter (for an Imperial IPA).  I have a stir plate and a 2L flask.  My question is how do I sterilize the foam stopper for the flask?  Should I put it in no rinse sanitizer?

Thanks in advance.

smurfe:
I never use a stopper. I just put tin foil over mine.

bendbrew:
Foil-excellent!  Let me show my lack of knowledge even more then, do you sanitize the foil?  Do you just rip it off the foil in the drawer next to the baggies and cling wrap and throw it on the flask?

tesla_hv:
I've done both.  I suppose to be safe you should sanitize it first.  To be honest, I usually don't.
