Erlenmeyer Flask (500ML)
Great Flask for yeast culturing.
500 ml borosilicate glass flask is an excellent all-around yeast starter vessel.
We build starters for 3 main reasons. First, to ensure yeast health.
By making a starter 1-3 days in advance, you ensure that your yeast is healthy and strong and ready to do its job.
Second, to create more yeast.
By making the starter you will increase the cell count of the yeast, giving you a better chance of keeping bacteria's and wild yeasts from fermenting your wort.
Third, if you are making high gravity beers. If you are making a high gravity beer (1.060+) you will need more yeast to start the ferment faster.
High gravity beers will also finish more completely when you pitch ample quantities of yeast.
