    Including the stir bars I got (I got a set of 7 for $14 off Amazon ) I am into this for about $20. The rest of the materials were things I had lying around. The erlenmeyer flask was bought, but I would have had to buy that either way, but I did get it for $10.

    At a local homebrew store. It isn't borosilicate glass, but it isn't really an issue for me because I have been making starters in growlers for years and have learned to avoid thermal shock of the glass. Now I don't have to shake a growler anymore, just set it on the stirplate and forget it.

    Sweet. I have a 2L right now so I'm good but it just confirms the ridiculous markup here.
