Stir plate question
« on: January 20, 2018, 06:02:41 pm »
Bought myself a stir plate for my birthday.  I rarely make a new starter because I repitch for umpteen generations, but figured anything I can do to maximize health in the first gen will pay off down the line.  My question is, how much, if any, heat is generated by the stirring action, and should I account for this in choosing ambient temp for the starter?

It probably varies by brand/model, but mine generates only negligible heat.
