Awesome
I Have been using this item for over a year, and with the addition of this, my fermentation started much quicker and was way more robust then using the old methods.

Works great
I started using this for my meads and the fermanation is going in just a few hours. Definitely makes a big difference.

Did the job
Product did what I needed it to. Since none of my local brew stores have stocked this part since before spring because of product defects I was a little leery of buying it online but it worked great and fit tight on the O2 canister I bought at my hardware store. Fermentation begin within 3 hours and was very vigorous.

inefficient and safety?
I could not find any "food-grade" O2 that fits this regulator. This unit only attaches to 02 cylinders purchased at hardware stores in the plumbing section. Red 02 bottles have other gases that could be harmful? The O2 cylinders, alone, are about $10.00.

Also, only good for about 2 fermentations.

I went to professional compressed gas facility and secured a tank of food grade 02 in large cylinder and added a kettle valve as regulator for safer, more efficient, and cost effective alternative.

Didn't work again!
This is my third one. It works for the first few times and then the bladder in the valve blows out. No I'm not turning it all the way open. Actually this reminds me to ask for one more...my last attempt as it is awesome when it does work.

Response from Northern Brewer
Hi Matt, sorry to hear about an issue. Was this the replacement one that blew out? That is quite odd, not sure what is causing this to happen. We could send a replacement if the same address works? Rare to see that happen, let alone twice....are you using the standard bernzomatic red tanks? Looking forward to hearing back!

Are these left hand thread?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are indeed left hand thread. You will find the cylinders at Lowes or Home Depot or your local hardware store to be the same.
is there an adapter to allow the use of 20 gallon oxy tanks?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. I hook mine to a 1.4 ounce Berne o magic oxygen cylinder to oxygenate mead.
For the life of me, cannot get the regulator to seat on a benzomatic standard tank from Home Depot. It will seat halfway and then leak gas from the tank. Any ideas? Thanks!
F A on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Turn the regulator to the closed position, then screw it on the tank. If the big pin in the center of the regulator is in the "down" position then push it to the "up" position. It appears when the regulator is just screwed on the tank, no pressure is put on the regulator until it is "opened"
What is the flow rate of this regulator when fully open?
Zachary G on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a very simple regulator that does not regulate flow rate to a specific rate - but around 2.5 liters per minute roughly. We have an upgrade that includes a flow rate meter.
