i figure i'd drop this here, since everyone in this thread should have at least a passing interest in brewing.

It's a giveaway for a free stirplate. woo!

Sorry, tomer. U.S. only, unless you have someone in the states that would be willing to provide a stateside address. then go for it.

Well, I dont do starters anyhow :)  but for thos who work with liquid cultures or culturing generations after generations of strains , starters are fairly essential and a stir plate makes it that much better in terms of growth conditions.

i'll use starters when i'm trying to culture yeast from a bottle or if i'm using washed yeast that's fairly old. i don't have a stir plate, but it would improve the yeast count significantly over just swirling the jar every now and again.

Our home brew club is coming over the end of May and we are going to do 45 gallons of Amber. We are trying to get together and brew every other month. So far we did an English Special Bitter, where we all take home 5 gallons and put a different yeast in it. Then we all brought it back to the meeting one month and tasted it. Then we did a sweet stout and we all put some different additive to it. We split our 5 gallon batch and made half a chocolate and half a chocolate with chili in it. We have that meeting at the end of March. Last weekend they brewed an IPA and everyone is going to put a different dry hop in it.

It's been a lot of fun. We also brew 5 gallon batches on our own and take to meetings to taste, but this doing it in 45 gallon batches has been fun. Make beer, grille some brats, chicken and pork, and stand around the brew pot drinking beer all day.

Clubs are fun.  great way to share your hobby.   
I only thing I hate about making wine and cheese at home is that I dont have pepole to share it with, that are as interested in it as I am. (and I dont mean people who eat\drink your stuff and pat your back for making tasty things...)
