comment How do I make a Yeast Starter?
I'd never seen those before, but googling around, it looks pretty cool. Suppose it makes sense- yeast can live without oxygen, but it needs it to reproduce (which is the point of a starter). Spinning a magnet inside to keep the starter aerated would work great for that. I wonder if any other automated aeration methods (eg, a fishtank bubbler) would do the trick...

Regarding the ice method, couldn't you just boil some water, then freeze it in sanitized tupperware?
