Description

Use the OxyWand™ to infuse oxygen into your must during the start of fermentation to feed yeast and to reduce volatile sulfur compounds (VSC's) with a process called Macro Oxygenation. It is actually very easy to do. Insert the wand, turn on oxygen, and leave it on only while you punch the cap. After three days or when your wine has reached 10% alcohol stop oxygenating. Yeast use the oxygen as a nutrient to produce healthy cell walls which helps to eliminate issues throughout fermentation. Healthy yeast also produce better flavors and produce less Volatile Sulfur Compounds. You can also actually smell the must become fresher and more fruity while oxygenating as VSC's are driven off. Note that in styles like Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc where sulfur compounds are part of the flavor profile you would want to reduce the amount of Macro Oxygenation in frequency and/or duration. Macro Oxygenation also has the benefits of locking up color and rounding tannins.  Want to read more?  See our paper on our website at https://morewinemaking.com/articles/Macro_oxygenation_fermentation.

Pure oxygen means quicker aeration, which means I can get my fermenter sealed up faster

Feed your yeast. One of the easiest and efficient methods I have found.

Great Product
This product will bring your brewing and fermentation to a new level. I made my normal 2,000L starter, aerated my wort for 30 seconds and pitched the yeast. I figured fermentation would start a little bit earlier than before, but I was surprised when 4 hours later fermentation had begun and the next morning it was off-gassing harder than it ever has. It has always taken 24-36 hours to begin and off-gassing was never like this. The only change was aerating with pure O-2. Get this setup and you won't be disappointed. Happy Brewing!!!

Best Aeration Ever
I've used this wand with my last four batches. It is amazing how much more vigorous my fermentation is after using the OxyWand instead of shaking for five minutes. I will never go back to shaking. Excellent product.

Awesome tool
I've been brewing for a couple of years now and was concerned that my beers were finishing with a higher gravity than expected. I decided that my method of oxygenation was inadequate and my yeast were pooping out too early. My setup basically involved a siphon aerator attached to some tubing that splashed the wort while transferring to the fermenter. I bought the oxywand and used it for the first time a week ago. This product was easy to sterilize and use. The stone came off without a problem for sterilization although the gasket is pretty small so you should take care not to lose it. When I used it I 'stirred' the wand a bit to make sure all of the wort was getting oxygen. I had some bubbling in my airlock a few hours after pitching the yeast and a solid layer of krausen (about an inch) less than 12 hours after pitching. I'll post an update in a couple weeks to see what my gravity ended up as but this wand appears to be working as expected. I considered getting the cheaper setup with the black tubing but was concerned I wouldn't be able to tell if the stone was at the bottom of the fermenter or not. For $5 more this solved that problem. This is an awesome product and if you aren't aerating your wort then I highly recommend adding this to your brewday setup.
