Description

This Oxygenation System pumps pure oxygen into your cooled wort using a disposable oxygen tank and stainless steel diffusion stone. Takes a mere 1-2 minutes of operation to achieve adequate oxygen levels. Comes with a regulator for disposable oxygen tank, sterile inline filter, our threaded .5 micron stainless steel oxygenation stone and tubing.

Yeast need oxygen to make good beer. The problem is that after boiling for an hour the wort is void of oxygen. Fermentations with low levels of oxygen will produce yeast that start slower, have sluggish ferments, and are more likely to poop-out and stop fermenting. On the contrary, fermentations that have been infused with oxygen will have healthier yeast that start faster, ferment faster, have a greater tolerance to alcohol, produce beers with less residual sugar, and produce better overall flavors.

Currently, the standard practice of getting oxygen to the yeast is to splash the wort as it enters the fermenter or to shake the fermenter once full. This practice is definitely better than nothing, however it is impossible to infuse enough oxygen by shaking or splashing and the air you do infuse is usually contaminated to some extent.


Please Note: Disposable Oxygen tank is Not Included.  These are available at some hardware stores. Each disposable oxygen tank will last for approximately 10-15 five gallon batches.

About the inline filters: There are two sides to the filter - an "in" and an "out". The direction you use doesn't matter, however, you want to take note of which way you first push air through it and always keep it that way. There is an arrow on the edge of the filter housing that we use to keep the air flow going one direction when using it. The filter should never get wet, so don't dunk it in sanitizer. If you want to clean the outside of it, use Alpet D2. To store the filter, use a little tinfoil on the "In" of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag.

Oxygen Regulator Features:

  • 1/4" Barb Output
  • Max Delivery Pressure: 100 PSI
  • Max Flow Rate:  180 CFH

Works great
I prefer the systems that use the stainless rod instead of the black tubing but this one works fine. My fermentation and attenuation is more consistent and complete with the use of oxygen and a starter. I have not tried a side by side comparison for flavor but consistency I think is key in brewing.

Easier than shaking
This has made my beer much better. Easy to use and no more agitating a heavy fermentor.

Works well
No issues at all. Hooked it up to the tank and it seems to work great. Fermentation seemed better after doing so vs. the shake method. Worth the price in my opinion.

Happy Yeast = Better Beer
The benefits of oxygen to yeast health are undeniable. Why not give your little buddies the best possible chance at making great beer? This set-up gets the job done well. The black hose between the air filter and the stone is pretty rigid and can be difficult to manipulate. A ss wand might be preferential, but that would up the cost.

Great product.
I use oxygen in my beer and couldn't be happier with the results. I could easily see the benefit by purchasing this product by how well the yeast took off. Stone cleans up easily boil it for 5 min. Highly recommended.

WORKS GREAT FOR BIG BATCHES
When brewing big batches you can't shake them so I put this in my brew kettle then pour in my fermenter.

No brainer for beer quality
This is a no-brainer. Oxygenation is quick, easy, and loads your wort with plenty of O2. No more shaking, splashing, etc. As a bonus - you can push out air that might have contaminating organisms, so there's less chance of infection.

The cost of the small O2 tanks spread out over your batches adds about $1.00 to the cost. The cost of this is a one-time investment. Well worth it for a better quality beer in less time and with less hassle.

Great buy!
No regrets here. It works great, no issues w/ cleaning. I've used on probably 15-20 batches and no problems yet!

Great system- so much faster than an aquarium pump!
Takes one minute to do what my aquarium pump does in 30 minutes. And fermentations are fast and furious. Local Ace Hardware sells O2 canisters for only $4!

Quicker Fermentation
Quicker fermentation with the addition of the proprer amount of oxygem in every brew. Worth every penny spent!
