Oxygen Wort Aerator

Oxygen Wort Aerator

Professional brewers know that oxygen-rich wort means healthy yeast cells, shorter lag phases, and faster fermentations. As a homebrewer, you should have the same advantages as the professionals.  Adding pure oxygen to wort is more efficient than splashing or shaking a carboy full of beer and will add between 8 - 10 ppm of oxygen. Our oxygen aerator includes a stainless steel shaft welded to a stainless steel diffusion stone with 0.5 micron pores, stainless steel screw clamp, and food grade vinyl tubing.   A local hardware store or welding supply will be able to rent or sell inexpensive oxygen regulators and disposable oxygen tanks.  To use the aerator, sterilize the aerator in a bath of Iodophor prior to placing it in the carboy for aeration, place the stone and dip tube into the primary fermentation carboy, open the regulator and aerate the wort with oxygen and achieve the best fermentation you can.

    Pretty pleased with this setup. The description is confusing, I was under the impression that there was a stainless steel wand that connected the aeration stone to the vinyl tubing same as the Northern Brewer setup. The description should read stainless steel hose barb. Works just fine with the red disposable o2 tanks I purchased at the Home Depot, and shipped for free with my order over $100.
