Yeast starters offer higher cell counts at the time the yeast is pitched, leading to faster, healthier fermentations and better tasting beer!
This kit contains everything you need for making your own yeast starter in package. When you’re ready to make the move from direct pitching your yeast to making a proper starter, this kit is a great way to get going. 
The most common size used to make starters using White Labs brand yeast. Same as our Y300 Starter Kit, but with a 1000ml Erlenmeyer flask instead of the 500ml.
In the lab world, these flasks are known as "Student Grade," meaning there may be some cosmetic flaws in the glass, and the volume measurements are approximate due to variations in the thickness of the glass walls of the flask. This makes it a great flask for making yeast starters--at a great price!
We do not recommend the use of an electric element with these flasks. If this cannot be avoided, we suggest using a larger pot as a hot water bath on the stove.

Do your yeast a favor.
Any beer with an OG over 1.050 would benefit from a starter. It gives your yeast a nice running start before pitching into the wort. I love the 1000 ml size to make one pint starters for my session strength beers and two pint starters for beers in the 1.060-1.070 range.

Great for 5 gallon or less starters with low to medium gravity
If you're looking to get going with yeast starters, this is your kit. If you plan to brew more than 5 gallon or beer with OG's above 1.060, you might want to get the 2 liter version of this. Getting both give you room to grow and incrementally step up yeast cultures, however.

Good kit
The kit was as advertized. I used the starter a few times for lager but didn't see any difference than when I used just one current date smash pak of Wyeast or White labs liquid yeast. It works great if you want to reuse your yeast though.

Awesome Kit!
Should have bought two of them. Will be ordering another one soon.

Needed for Big Beers
I'm an avid listener to the brewing network. I have been sold on how important a controlled fermentation is. I bought this and started pitching the correct amount of yeast, and what do you know? An immediate improvement in my homebrew.

My entry into making starters
I was intimidated to begin making starters, but this was an affordable way for me to try it out. I use it for almost every brew now. I do not use a stir plate, I just swirl regularly. Making starters with this flask has made a huge difference in my fermentations. I will likely upgrade to a larger flask and stir plate at some point.
