Yeast starters are a great way to increase your yeast health and cell count for higher ABV (alcohol %) beers and lagers. A starter by itself though requires regular agitation to provide oxygen for the little yeasties to multiply, usually accomplished by picking up the flask and swishing it around for a couple minutes.

A stir plate provides you continuous aeration throughout the day while you're away from the house and will give yeast the best possible environment to multiply in. Kit includes the following:
