22 Review(s)

An efficient, sanitary and inexpensive way to aerate wort in the primary fermenter. The aquarium pump forces room air through the sanitiary, in-line HEPA filter which removes dirt and contaminants. Then the air is delivered to the wort through a stainless steel diffusion stone, which promotes rapid absorption into the wort. For best results, aerate your cooled wort for 20-30 minutes.

Works as described Review by Raj

This works as described. It is very quiet and it seems to do the trick. I had no problem getting the hose attached to the stone as some did. I've used it three times and so far so good! (Posted on 12/16/13)
Works well Review by David

Bought it for my second time brewing. Tried using hot water on the small tube, but it still was difficult to slip over the filter.

As far as aerating the beer, it worked very nicely. Had to attach the blowoff tube because the krausen was coming up the airlock from the vigourous fermentation. The beer has another week on the secondary, but I can't wait to try it. (Posted on 11/15/13)
Great Review by Alan

I read most of the reviews on this product and I found it to be very simple to assemble and use. It is well worth the money. Order and shipping was a snap and it arrived on time. Would defiantly recommend this product. (Posted on 11/9/13)
Worked great Review by Chris

This product really made a difference. I ran thge unit for 20 minutes before pitching yeast. The yeast took off within 12 hours and active fermentation has been great. Only downside is attaching the small tube to a big nipple. (Posted on 11/7/13)
Gets the job done Review by Robert

Product works fine but does take nearly 30 minutes to aerate 5 gallons. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone with aeration issues. (Posted on 10/28/13)
Works great. Review by Bernie

Works great. The fermentation bucket/carboy is typically filled with foam in 20 to 25 minutes. Much easier than shaking or pouring back and forth. (Posted on 10/17/13)
Went with disposable O2, haven't looked back Review by jclaine

I had one of these, used it for about 5-6 brews and it worked much better than bucket shaking and pouring but my filter and stone got compromised by mold (my idiotic fault) whet I was shopping for a replacement I decided to grab the disposable O2 bottle regulator kit for a few bucks more than what my replacement parts would have costed. I have used it on six beers now and it is far superior for a little bit more cash.

This is good but pumping pure O2 in your wort is better. (Posted on 10/3/13)
Works as expected Review by Packphin

Easy to setup and use. Was concerned with previous reviews but went ahead and purchased it. Glad I did. A home brewing friend was impressed and wants to get one as well (as he said, a lot easier than pouring back and forth between bucket....and easier on the back). BTW, I have zero issues with stone floating; no modifications needed. (Posted on 9/3/13)
Great Investment Review by Chance

Over the last few years of brewing I've been trying to up my fermentation game. Next to my temp-controlled fermentation chamber, this aeration system has made one of the bigger improvements in my homebrew. And seeing as the price is very manageable, this has a huge bang-for-the-buck. My first batch after using this system as opposed to the ole "shake your carboy til you can't lift your arms anymore" I was amazed at the clean profile that my brew had, which I attribute to a better fermentation. Also, every batch I've made since I got this system has required a blowoff tube, which I used to only need for hefes. Unlike many other homebrew products, the improvements seen with this item are quite noticeable.

As for some of the complaints;
Yes, the smaller tube is quite difficult to fit onto the inline filter. I've also noticed two different barb sizes on inline filters, with one being slightly larger and VERY difficult to use with this hose. But a little patience and hot water work fine. (Posted on 8/27/13)
Works Review by Bryan

Simple way to improve your beer. I have brewed 6 or 7 batches (5 gallon) using this aeration system. I am seeing a longer period of vigorous fermentation and lower FG than batches brewed previously. I boil the stone for 15 minutes after each use- no problem. As with any new piece of equipment (stir plate, etc.), I suggest browsing youtube, forums, Palmer's book, before trying it out.
