It's really simple.

Yeast needs oxygen. Sure, you can shake that carboy or bucket of wort, but there's only so much oxygen you can get into wort using air alone.

The Oxygenation Kit 2.0 is much quicker: easier than agitation.

Give your yeast the oxygen they need to start fermentation fast and finish strong.

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

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

Availability: In stock

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.

So Far So Good
Used this for the first time with my Citral Pale Ale last Sunday. As of the last time I checked last night, fermentation was still going strong. Definitely better than when I used to just shake the carboy.

Excellent product
Best item I’ve purchased. I get much better fermentation with using the oxygenation kit and is a lot easier than trying to rock the container back n forth.

I can’t find anyone in Colorado Springs that carries oxygen for it. ACE? No. Called local homebrew shop who said go to Home Depot. Nope. Aarrgghh!

You Need This!
After years of brewing, I finally bought this and wish I had done so years ago! Instead of 24 to 48 hours for fermentation to start, it was rocking and rolling in 6-8 hours. Most vigorous fermentation I've seen. Five gallon batch in a 6.5G carboy, the foam was coming out the air lock. I brewed the dry Irish Stout and gave it 40 seconds of O2...huge difference!
March 9, 2018
Recieved the kit and picked up a tank of oxygen to brew a 5 gallon of NE pale Ale.
Worked great. Had a very active fermentation.
I turned air on before dipping tube into carboy to avoid stone from becoming clogged over many future batches.
Cant wait to try my Ale.

Good kit but it did leak at the connection point between the wand and hose. I little elbow grease tightened it up and has been smooth sailing on both batches since.

Easy to Use
Beats pouring the beer from bucket to bucket. No more spills and less contamination worries. I oxygenate for around 5 minutes, pitch the yeast and stick the beer in my temperature controlled keeper.

Game Changer!
I just used my oxygenation kit 2.0 on a lager, and it started fermenting within 8 hours. I have never had such a fast starting/vigorous fermentation on a lager until now. This kit is going to change my brewing game!

easy to use
with all of the different opinions in regards to per-oxygenating the wort we decided to try this. It works well although the regulator is very touchy. You need to turn it quite a few times to get the O2 to flow but then need to back it off quickly to obtain the gentle flow that is recommended. Haven't really noticed a difference in the finished product but we don't have to manhandle the primaries any more either.

I purchased one of these, and didn't realize that it would "Only" work with the disposable tanks. I rented a 20cu.ft. O2 tank from the local weld supply shop, but to my O-shiz moment it isn't compatible. If I can find an adapter, will the oxygenation kit work with the larger refillable tank?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: So the issue is that the supplied regulator will not attach to your O2 tank. As I see it you have 2 options:
1) return the tank and pick up a disposable one from your local hardware store. You really only need to sparge for about a minute to achieve O2 saturation if your wort is at the right temp. So the little tank will last quite a while.
2) acquire the appropriate regulator for the tank (costs $$$) and use a hose barb to connect it to the flexible line and aeration stone. Basically swap out the current regulator. Take care though not to apply too much pressure to the stone or you will end up with a big pot of bubbles.
Good luck!
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.
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.
Matthew R on Dec 4, 2015
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 picked up the disposable 02 bottle at home depot but it doesn't fit with the valve. The valve is too large. Anyone else have this issue??
A shopper on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know if this helps or not but oxygen tanks thread in the reverse.
Hi! I bought this kit couple of months ago but I haven't used it yet. I am about to buy the oxygen tank (the red one that seems to be the only on earth for brewers), but I was wondering if there is any difference between oxygen on this cylinder vs medical oxygen (yeah, the one that grown ups uses). Anyone has any experience with the latter?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The red bottles work fine (although not pure Oxygen) but they go so fast (I was only getting 2 1/2 batches of beer per bottle). So, I purchase the larger tank now from the same folks that sell me CO2. I was still able to use the wand with the stone on it, and the plastic tubing, but I had to get rid of the small little regulator because it does not fit larger bottles. It was easy enough to find another regulator that fits Oxygen tanks (different fittings from CO2 tanks so you can't get them confused) and now I've got tons of Oxygen that will last me a long time.

In the long run I'm saving money, the Oxygen is pure, and I'm not running back to the store for another red cylinder every month or two.
Can this be attached to a regular 5lb oxygen tank?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You could use the hose and the wand, but not the regulator. This is designed to be hooked up to the CGA601 connector, while the larger o2 bottles use CGA540.

This can only be hooked up to the small red bottles you get at your local hardware store.
Do you sell the disposable O2 tanks at NB (Milwaukee)? If so how much do they cost?
James J 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.
What's the proper way to clean the O2 wand when it's infected? Even though I soak the wand before and after in Star San it's the only common denominator in infected batches of beer. Will baking in the oven or boiling damage it? What's the preferred method?
Jason F on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I just let it boil in the wort before I use it and rinse with starsan, never had any problems.
what is the ID of the included tubing? Looking to add a sanitary filter
A shopper on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm measuring ~5/32 for the tubing ID. If you're looking to use the in-line sanitary filter provided on NB it will work but the tube will need some convincing to get over the filter barbs much like has already been done by the kit on the regulator barbs. I measure the barb OD on the filter and regulator to both be ~3/8 while the wand OD is 3/16 (no barbs).
I bought one of these and have success with the first three batches. The fourth is having problems...I can't seem to get oxygen to flow. I have tried swapping the O2 tank for two new ones, so I don't think that is the issue.

I have to admit that when trying to get O2 to flow that I opened the regulator so much that it came apart. It didn't spill its guts, so I think I got it back together correctly. Wondering if there are any assembly instructions so I can ensure it has been put back together correctly?
Jason B on Aug 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If I understand your problem correctly it is most likely a clogged diffusion stone. I clean the crap out of mine after each use. Try soaking the end in water for an hour then blow compressed air through it.
Would this be good for mead?
Cody L on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cody--bought this for my husband last year and he says absolutely yes--this would be good for mead.
What is the flow rate in liters/ minute when valve is wide open?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: More than 2.5 liters (that’s where my flow meter maxes out).
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.
During the 1st 3-5 days of fermenting wine, its recommended to use a towel over the opening and stir 1-2 times a day. Would this device change the standard 3-5 days to less? As in, it will magnify the yeasts growth over a shorter time frame?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will result in healthier yeast but will not shrink down that 3-5 day window for you.
I bought this a couple of months ago I have not used it yet. There is some corrosion on the regulator does anyone have any advice for storing or something to put on it to protect it in the future? I know you shouldn't put petroleum near oxygen I wasn't sure if tool oil would be okay.
A shopper on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as the oil was on the outside of the regulator, I don't think it would be a problem. I would definitely stay away from any heat sources (stove burner/propane burner) while using it though. If the corrosion is bad enough, you might contact customer service for an exchange.
We just got ours, used it once with no problem, and when we went to use it again later, we opened the valve of the regulator all the way-to the point that it fell apart and NOTHING HAPPENED. But there is O2 in the tank, so...WTF???
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,
I'm so sorry about that! If you give us a call at 1-800-681-2739, we would love to get you fixed up. Cheers!
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

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 bought the kit and then went out to a welding supply store where I typically buy my CO2 and asked for an O2 tank as well. The threads on my O2 tank valve are the same as the threads on my CO2 tank and these are not the threads that the kit regulator comes with. Are there any adapters on the market?
