Includes 16” aeration wand with 0.5 micron tip, tubing, and oxygen regulator. 

Needed but not included is a disposable oxygen tank, available at hardware stores.

Product Details

Effortlessly infuse wort with pure oxygen in less than a minute, maximizing the level of dissolved oxygen to dramatically decrease lag time and yield vastly improved yeast attenuation. Equipped with a 16" aeration wand, the Oxygenation Kit 2.0 ensures oxygen infusion into even the deepest pockets of your fermentor. 

While beneficial for all brews, oxygenation is as important as yeast pitching rate for high-gravity beers and lagers. Provide the yeast with an optimal fermentation environment to ensure they produce the optimal brew.

The system comes with a valve to attach to an oxygen tank, tubing, and a 16" aeration wand tipped with a stainless steel 0.5 micron air stone. Tubing is secured to the wand by a herbie clamp to ensure a tight fit.

Needed but not included: A disposable oxygen tank, available at any hardware store.

Awesome
First thing to know is where and what to get for oxygen. Just go to the local hardware store and get a small disposible tank next to the tanks to sweat pipes. Next is always sanitize this before and after with turning it on...this keeps it clean also. This thing works great and is well worth the money. I just keged a 10.24% brew. Yeehaw... click helpful if it is.

Oxygenation Kit Rocks
Put a big early focus on ferementation control and my beer has really amped up in quality because of this. After getting the oxygenation kit and a ferementation temp controller, plus ability to do starters with a stir plate, the beer is much better with no off flavors, and actually is really surprising me with how good it can be early in my brewing career.

Oxygenation Kit 2.0
I have used this kit twice now. I have noticed how much faster fermentation begins and how much more vigorously the yeast reacts. Yesterdays brew was finished by 1PM and since 4PM it has been bubbling very vigorously. My entire office and the hallway outside my home office smells awesome!! It really works fantastic!

I've used this Oxygenation kit three, maybe four times max. The cylindrical part of the regulator (where the word "off" and the arrows are) no longer spins and I can't get any oxygen to flow from the tank. It's stuck and won't budge. I haven't dropped it or anything like that. Has anyone experienced a similar situation or have any ideas? Tried a bit of WD40 with zero luck, and I wound up just angrily shaking my fermenter for aeration.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew, thanks for writing this question here. It sounds like some of the internal threads cross threaded or jammed. Can you help us find the order you got it on and we can explore our options for helping out. That regulator is basically toast if that is the case. I found an account under your email creationofminerals@hotmail.com

Do you have the order number? Or about when was it purchased? If you could also include an address verification in your reply here that would be great as well. Looking forward to hearing back so we can help out! Cheers! James J.
I want to order the oxygenator kit. Should I also order an sanitary filter? Will it fit the tubing that comes with the kit? Since the oxygen cylinders at Home Depot are for welding I don't know if it is sterile or not.
H U on Jun 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with a sanitary filter, but I would recommend boiling the Oxygenation wand before using it. We have been using the O2 tanks from Home Depot and have not had any issues with contamination. We have brewed 5 beers so far using it and had no issues. The only reason I mention boiling the wand before using it in the wort is to kill all the contaminants in the stone. Soaking it in star san alone will not get in all the small holes. So we got creative and just dip the wand in our boiling wort for a minute and release a little O2 to blow out any left over stuff in the stone. Then we immediately place it in a tall glass of star san to soak until we need to oxygenate the wort before pitching.
Do you sell the disposable O2 tanks at NB (Milwaukee)? If so how much do they cost?
Airhoover on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know, they are sold at any Home Depot for $9.97, usually by the welding equipment in the tool department.
I use a 1000 ml Yest Starter Kit, will this make a noticeable difference?
L M on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use the Oxy kit for a full batch of wort in the fermenter. For yeast starters, I usually just shake the flask like crazy for 2 minutes before adding yeast. Sometimes the flask gets put on a stir plate. Sometimes I just shake it every hour for the first few hours.

The Oxy kit would certainly work well for a yeast starter, but IMO it's more important for the finished wort.
Will this attach to a small CO2 tank to be used for purging extra headspace or is it strictly O2 tanks?
B R on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure, as far as I know it only fits the small Benzomatic 1 pound bottles of oxygen or propane sold at hardware stores. Good luck.
I have been using this regulator for about a year now. When I go to start the flow, the control knob will turn 360 degrees about four times before I start to get any bubbles, but then it's only a quarter turn and I'm in danger of using up all the oxygen in the tank. I mentioned it to a buddy and he said the regulator might have been defective. Is this normal?
R O on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The regulator do have a period of inactivity when turning the dial as oxygen pressure slowly builds. This means that the regulator is basically all or nothing and we would recommend using it at near full bore for short periods unless you get the flow control valve. Mine at home acts quite similar, feel free to contact customer service if you feel it is an issue or impacts your brewing in any way. Cheers!
I can't seem to attach mine to an oxygen tank without it leaking at the threads. First tank was empty the next morning, which is what alerted me to the problem. I bought two additional tanks yesterday and tried with both, but they leaked also. Tried tightening as much as possible, tried teflon tape... either way, when I turn the tank upside down and stick it in water, I get lots of bubbles. Any advice on preventing leaks? I realize I can (and probably should) detach from the tank when storing... but I shouldn't have to attach/detach constantly on brew day to keep from losing so much O2.
J E on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for sending in the question. It sounds like yours has some issue resulting in the leak. Mine doesn't do that so it sounds like it might be defective enough that we could replace. I would need an order number and an address verification if you want us to file a claim. I always dettach mine just for safety. A co worker leaves his connected and does not see leaks. The regulators are nothing fancy and having taken them apart I would not recommend leaving them connected in case it leaks. Anyway let us know if we can help!
Do I need to put the aerator all the way to the bottom of the carboy, or just in the middle? Also, there was no mention of how to sanitize the wand. I figured that I would soak it in PBW and then aerate some star san before immediately going into the carboy. Making cider, btw
Pancho on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend putting the aerator at the bottom of the carboy to maximize the distance the oxygen bubbles will travel and increase the chances of absorption. If you soak the wand in StarSan for a couple of minutes (no aeration necessary), you should be fine. I'm not sure if you need to aerate cider- I've never done it, and my batches come out fine.
How does this compare to using a yeast starter? The video stated that the Oxygenation Kit will increase the amount of yeast microbes in the wort. Isn't that the purpose of a yeast starter? Or are they "apples and oranges?" Thanks
pete g on Jul 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Aerating will increase the cell count, but not in the same manner as a yeast starter. The biggest benefit of a yeast starter is to grow more yeast while the biggest benefit of aeration is to make the yeast cells stronger and able to ferment better. Doing both will help ensure your beer turns out the best that it can.
just bought mine from Amazon, going to use in this weekends brew, can't wait! question is, if I do 3-40 seconds, how many uses can I plan to get out of the standard 1.4 oz tank from Lowe's/Home Depot etc?
T O on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've found the number of uses I get to vary from tank to tank but 10-15 batches at 30 seconds per is a good estimate.
Looking at your Oxygenation Kit 2.0. I would like to add a flow meter to the hose but the one you carry is out of stock. What do you recommend?

This one (link) fits a 8mm hose. Would it fit, and if so do I just cut the hose and insert it in-line?

M I on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mike,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! Looking at that flow meter, and our regulator, that combo will work. You will just need to splice the flow meter in-line and ensure that the flow meter is vertically mounted on something. I hope that this helps!
Can i get a diagram on how it's put together. I've had it for 6 or 8 months and it was working great, but then i was having issues, so i took it apart. I don't know if i lost a part or just put it together wrong, but it seems to be administering the air when tightened, not when the nob is loosened.. I think a diagram of parts and the order that they go would be a big help. Thank you for your time
D B on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi David

thanks for contacting us. Did you take the actual regulator apart

Those are pretty much impossible to get put back together. If within a year it could be under warranty

let me know what the unit was doing

an order number and an address and we should be able to help. Cheers!
My air stone is clogged. I've never touched it with my hands and I put it in star san before and after each use. I've boiled it , soaked in PBW and no luck. Where can I buy a new stone or wand?
J U on Sep 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Any oils can clog the stones after enough use - its important to clean thoroughly to get as much life out of them as possible. We sell replacements product code 41237
I've used mine 3x. I've gone thru 2 1.4oz bottles. How many times are you supposed to get out of each cylinder if you oxygenate for a minute each time? TIA
L A on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You should get more than

uses out of one canister of O2. What I have found is if you remove the regulator from the tank for storage you will get many more uses out of one tank.
