Breathable foam stoppers will withstand boiling or autoclaving temperatures, making them ideal for use in preparing a yeast starter.
The honeycomb structure of the foam stoppers will act is a filter for any airborne bacteria or wild yeast that might enter the flask.
That important because a lot of air is sucked into the flask while it is cooling.
You can also leave the stoppers on the flask instead of a fermentation lock.
Some people use foam stoppers to replace fermentation locks in their carboys, too.
The large foam stoppers are 46-50 mm wide and fit our 2000 ml borosilicate glass flasks.
