Love this kit. No issues. They thankfully gave me a foam stopper not an airlock (which would not work for making a starter).
I love this thing! My beer starts to ferment like crazy in just a couple hours. Warning! Do use a small drop of the anti-foaming drops! The first time I did not and lost 20% through foam over. One suggestion for Mr. Austin: Add a little description of what the product is. Some people like to know what they are putting in their beer.
I figured since there weren't a lot of reviews for this, I'd chime in. After pricing out pieces separately, this is an amazing deal. Even at retail price it's a discount, but on sale it's a steal. I do have a couple of notes about the package: First, one of the questions on the site asks about a keeper magnet and the answer is that this does not come with one. At least with my order, StirStarter had taped a magnet to the instruction sheets. I ordered one separately, but it's only a couple bucks, so no big deal. Now I have an extra! Second, this included a 3-piece airlock (an s-style is shown), but the StirStarter instructions specifically say not to use an airlock and stopper. Most recommend a foam stopper or sanitized foil (which is what I did). Getting an extra airlock is not a negative, really, but it's worth noting. Those two things aside, the stir plate works great and this kit does have everything you could need to make a proper starter. Don't hesitate!
I seen that there was no review on this. I felt I needed to leave one. I picked this up on sale which was a plus right there. Ran my 1st starter and everything ran smooth. I was even surprised about the noise, not as loud as I have heard others. (yes there is still noise though) Worked like a charm. At this point in time I have only ran it once and I am very satisfied. Going to give it 4 stars to start but want to add another review later down the road after multiple uses and see if I will be willing to give it 5.
