AquaticEngineer Posted October 4, 2010 Share Posted October 4, 2010 I was browsing the web looking for a DIY plan for a magnetic stirring device and it seems as though they are fairly popular with the brewing community. I was just curious if anyone on this site that brews has attempted to make one, or if the have any pointers. The idea seems fairly simple, you mount a couple of high powered magnets to a small computer fan with a variable voltage regulator to turn up and down the fan speed. Mount a sturdy plexiglass top with some small spacers over over the magnets. Get yourself a stir bar off ebay and a flat bottom glass container and BAM. I actually had almost all the parts sitting in my garage with the exception of the stir bar that I purchased on ebay last night. I'm going to use mine for a refridgerated auto feeder I'm building. I'll let you guys know how it goes, these could be a pretty cheap solution for a Kalk stirrer as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
