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.

  • Adjustable brass oxygen regulator
  • Sanitary air filter

Like liked this one over others because of the 26" wand, which will reach the bottom of the fermenter.

Researched the benefits of oxygenation of wort, thought I would give it a try
William H on Apr 21, 2021
Great reviews. Other comparable oxygenation kits on the market with the 0.5 micron stone have multiple complaints of regulators leaking. The only other one I found with good reviews had only a 10 micron stone.

detachable carb stone and way better than shaking the carboy
Michelangelo Alcantar on Aug 28, 2019
the ability to remove the stone makes it a no brainer. Others that i looked at the stone was welded directly to the rod which would make it hard to sanitize

Will the regulator work in a fillable O2 tank, or disposable? Does it matter?
Aaron Paxson on Feb 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Aaron. I've taken a look at some of the portable/refillable oxygen tank connections that might be used for those with respiratory problems, and I'm pretty sure those connections are significantly different from the OxyWand regulator you're inquiring about. To the best of my knowledge, the OxyWand regulator will only thread into the disposable tanks you might get at a hardware store or at one of the big box stores. It is similar to the connection used on the disposable propane tank a plumber might use.
After speaking with a coworker who's been brewing for a number of years who also uses something similar to the OxyWand, he assures me that only a small amount of pure oxygen is needed to oxygenate a 5 gallon batch of wort - something like a 5 to 10 second flow will normally suffice, so the disposable tank should last for a number of batches of wort. I hope I helped you out.

What is the inside diameter of the tubing?
David Jammalo on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The tubing from the regular into the filter is 3/16" ID and from the filter to the steel wand is 1/4" ID.

Works Great
I got the OxyWand so I didn't have to shake up my wort in my fermentor. Now I just hook it up and let the O2 flow for about a minute or so. This has help out so much for the yeast. Faster start and finish times for the yeast. You can get the O2 at any big box hardware store in the welding section.

I recently received this kit and have only used it once. It worked perfectly, but I have to learn how to adjust oxygen settings as fully opened valve on oxygen cylinder was far too much. I ordered this particular kit because the wand was long enough to reach the bottom of my 6 gallon carboy and other brands were not. I would totally recommend this kit to others.

I picked this wand because the others were just plastic tubing and still a similar price. This one has a stainless steel wand which makes it easier to get into my fermenters.

all I needed
Super simple to use, very convenient, worked exactly as designed first time. I guess the only upgrade I'd love to see is a way to control or measure the gas transfer.

Bubble Bubble!
This was super easy to use. Picked up an oxygen can from hardware store, then followed instructions for sanitizing. Used it on brew day, ran for about 2 minutes in my fermenter before I pitched my yeast. Made a bunch of bubbles which tells me I probably got plenty of O2 in the wort. Fermentations went quick and strong.

Before a full day had passed I was seeing the most vigorous fermentation I'd ever seen, in almost three decades of homebrewing.. The only thing I did different was oxygenating this batch.
