What i did
Well I think that there are several ways to use it but this is what I did. I bought an inline filter and hooked it up to a small fish air pump. I sterilize with acid sanitier (flushed the inside and out). Hooked it up and place in my fermenter and covered with a but if foil. I did not stirr but I did let it airate for 15 to 20 min. I used a 7.75 gal keg to ferment in so think that there is less dead space that a plastic fermentation bucket but either way stirring would probable not be a bad idea. I did prop my yeast (san diego super yeast) so I had a good pitch rate. Fermentation went off with out a hitch and beer ended at 1012.

Aeration Wand
The wand works great, so much better than having a aeration stone on tubing.

Aeration wand
Works as intended. I run the airline throufh a sterelized rubber cap and let it aerate for about 15 minutes in my carboy. I recommend this product.

Oxygen time!
I hook up my Oxygen tank to this wand to provide amazing fermentation results in each of my brews. If you're serious about brewing, you should take this next step...your yeast with thank you with better results!

Easy to guide into your fermentor.
I only aerate worts over 1.060 OG, and I like to use pure oxygen. The main advantage of this wand is that it allows me to easily guide it down into my conical fermentor. It was annoying to try to snake the stone into the opening while dangling from stiff tubing. The same issue applies with a carboy, of course.

Should be longer
It's good, works fine, should be about 4" longer for 6.5 gal. carboys.

good idea, but plumbing problems
this fits beer tubing. the NB regulator uses 1/4" hose. somewhere down the line you have to change hose sizes to make this work with the NB regulator. i couldn't tighten the clamp enough on 1/4" hose to safely fit to the wand. i used a stainless quick connector and a 1/4" MPT x 1/8" barb adapter to make the transition. that way, i can leave the regulator, hose and female qc attached to the oxy bottle, and sanitize the assembly of wand, beer line, clamp and male qc.

is the stone removable for easy cleaning..ie boiling?
R A on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The stone is press fitted into the wand and is not easily removed. It's best not to remove it.
What is the best way to clean this?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I got away from a .5 stone and went with the Blichmann 10 micron stone because of cleaning. It was a pain. I would shoot some co2 through to help purge stuff out. Soak in pbw, you can boil to sanitize but I never did and just did a long soak in starsan as I did my mash and boil. Cleaning is very hard and you don't want to put your fingers on these because you can damage them. I got away from these and got the Blichmann O2 stone and regulator (which I needed anyway) and it's so much easier to deal with. Hope this helped some.
I am wondering how long do you let it bubble and is a regulator needed to control pressure from the Oxygen tank?
J K on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This aeration wand can be used in our oxygenation system. It does need a regulator to control the flow of oxygen. About 15-30 seconds on most brews of pure oxygen does the trick. Cheers!
How is this wand used? Stirring motion??
J C on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is used to inject oxygen into your cooled wort. You hook it to an oxygen tank, and inject pure oxygen into the wort before pitching the yeast. The aeration stone at the end creates tiny bubbles to most efficiently oxygenate the wort, for healthy yeast production and strong fermentation. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
