Details

Dissolve high levels of O2 in your wort! Oxygenation with compressed O2 and a diffusion stone gives a high level of dissolved O2 much faster and more effectively than aeration with an aquarium-style pump. Dissolved O2 in your wort means healthier yeast, shorter lag phase, faster fermentation, lower levels of fermentation byproducts like esters and diacetyl, and lower terminal gravity. Needed but not included is a disposable oxygen tank, available at hardware stores.

Simple and Works Great Review by Chris

It's super easy to use and works very well. If you're searching for an oxygen tank - look in the hardware store's section for blowtorches and such. There you'll find pure oxygen in the size / type of handheld canister that you'd use for a blowtorch. I'm not sure if they're all this color but my oxygen is red. (Posted on 4/9/14)
Make your wort breath. Review by CJ

Oxygen is important for healthy yeast growth, especially in the first few days of fermentation. This, by far, is the best way to get that all important oxygen into the wort. I have used on a yeast starter and in a primary so far and have great results. Just let it simmer for a minute and your done. (I still gave it a few small shakes to make sure it is well oxygenated.) Between using a starter and properly oxygenated wort there is no lag time for fermentation to start.

The regulator seems built to last and the stainless aeration stone looks top notch.

I highly recommend this product. It will save your back, arms, and nerves. (Posted on 3/5/14)
Good Tool Review by Bill

This thing works great. First use was with a Russian Imperial Stout. I'm Going to call it Chernobyl, because I had such active fermentation that it clogged my air lock tube and blew the lid off my bucket twice!
I would suggest better instructions relating to how long and how much. I also made some mead and braggot. On the third carboy my little tank went empty. After researching I found out I was using too much too long. (Posted on 1/8/14)

The new essential brew tool Review by Stephen
Rating
Amazing!!!! Provides much better results than I expected it to. Fermentations are much better with reduced lag time and this greatly reduces chances of a stall. Yeast are so thankful! Just make sure to use a blow off tube from the start (you're gonna need it) and keep you're fingers off of the diffusion stone. It's the oil from your fingers that will clog it up.

Awesome tool and must need for brewers!! Review by Malcolm

Got this after seeing a fellow brewer use it for oxygenating his wort. Both of us ended up making a modification; adding a 2-3foot copper tube as a wand because the tube would just twirl up. Other than that it's a great product!!! (Posted on 12/27/13)
hole shot Review by leo

I used this for the first time 10 days ago on a 1096 O.G. barleywine. I let bubble for 2 1/2 minutes on a new bottle of oxy. Day 11 and still got 1030. More info on how much to use would help because too much can be bad from what I have read. When you boil the stone put the hose in the water at the end and it will take out the coil.

Simple and effective Review by Brad

Simple and effective way to fill your wort with Oxygen. Much better than "shake til your arms fall off" method. I would have given it a 5 if a SS rod would have included. (Posted on 11/29/13)
Happy yeast Review by Scott

A good, cost effective way to make sure your yeast has the best chance to make the best year. Not cheap, but it's a hobby and this is much cheaper than a motorcycle! (Posted on 11/21/13)

Why would you not get this? Review by Brandon

Works great. Bought because I had shaken 6 gal. Carboy which then cracked. No more cracked carboy's. (Posted on 11/1/13)
Very nice!! Review by RJ

A great investment in quality brewing!
I wish it came with a stainless steel rod, as it does curl inside the carboy, but beyond that, it's a great investment in the health of your yeast! (Posted on 10/15/13)

The most frugal way to pump pure O2 into your wort. Your yeast expect the best, give it to them. (Posted on 10/3/13)
Works Great Review by Jason

Holy happy yeast! I made a yeast starter with a stir plate and used the Oxygenation Kit. The fermentation went wicked crazy! Airlock went nutz within a few hours. The only problem I had was that the fermentation was so active, it blew Krausen into the airlock and plugged it solid (twice). (Posted on 9/25/13)

Worth the money! Review by Thomas

Used the kit for the first time two weeks ago. I'm glad I ordered a blow off hose with it. This was the most active fermentation that I have had since starting to brewing. (Posted on 9/23/13)
Great Product! Review by AaronW
Rating
Works as advertised and really sped up the fermentation process. Went from about a four day fermentation to a two day. It was so active, it blew the airlock off within the first 8 hours! Great quality and comes with everything needed. Just don't touch the diffuser stone with bare hands so it doesn't get clogged. (Posted on 9/22/13)

Works great!! Review by Brian Hardin

No swirling a heavy 6 1/2 gallon carboy around for me anymore! It only takes around 1 1/2 minutes of O2 and your are ready to add your yeast. Active fermentation seems to start quicker and is beer attenuates to a lower FG. Well worth the expense!! (Posted on 8/14/12)
OK to O2 Review by Aaron
Rating
Worked pretty good, except that the hose like to coil up at the top of the carboy. Ended up cutting about 3" off the end before the diffusion stone and clamping a 12" section of food grade hollow stainless rod. Works great now. Do be prepared for very happy yeast and the bi-products that come with that, Blow off tube to start then air lock. (Posted on 5/22/12)
