Hopefully saccharomyces or however you spell his screen name comments that fella is very very sharp! I recently switch to SNS yeast starter from a stir plate and I am loving the results after a little edification from the aforementioned poster saccharomyces

My latest thought on the subject is - I wonder where that stir plate is?  It's been a few years since I used it.  Shake and pitch on the foam for stress free reproduction of yeast.
