    Dig it Ilanko. and points for ingenuity (although I really think you're going to blow your turntable like this--is yeast worth destroying your connection to 80's 45s?)

    Only other worry is that it isn't exactly stirring as much as slinging. You'll get a deposit of yeast slurry around the margin of your centrifugum that is really not much better than a still chamber.
    You need a stir stick that travels slightly slower than the turntable speed.

    Wow I love it.

    If you want to know if it;s helping turn the thing off. Let is set and wait for it to foam. then start it up and see if if foams more. Or any quantitative process where you see it knocking off CO2 from the yeast.

    Actually I have put 3 marble in to the liquid. the marbles did grate job bounce and making knocking sound.
    The end result was aggressive fermentation in 40 minute.
