Product details

Whirlpooling and aerating your beer are great practices for any brewer who wants to make better beer. Typically you need a lot of extra equipment, but Grainfather has designed an all-in-one solution to help you make the best beer possible. The Whirlpool & Aeration Brewing Paddle allows you to create a strong whirlpool and aerate your wort simultaneously.

The paddle has two half circle perdencilular to each other with large slots to allow air and particles to flow through. Attach the paddle to a drill to rotate in the wort.
  • 22” Long Paddle, perfect for small to large kettles
  • 5” Wide Blades for strong whirlpool and aeration
  • Designed to attach to power drill with ⅓” drill bit style end
  • 304 Stainless Steel

Whirlpooling is the action of creating a whirlpool of wort in the kettle and takes place at the end of the boil, after flame-out. By doing this the larger particles, such as hops matter, are concentrated at the bottom of the kettle. Those particles are left behind and thereby won’t clog a pump, or produce off-flavors in your primary fermentation.

Aerating is when you insert additional oxygen to your wort before yeast is added. Yeast need oxygen during the fermentation process, so the more oxygen the better.

No more hernias

So I used to pick up my GF conical fermenter and rock it, shake it, etc. I would also just slosh it for aeration. This took awhile, and I always worried at one point I would drop it. I now just use a plastic mash paddle (has holes in it) for 3mins. Then I attach this new whirlpool paddle and do one min straight one direction, then reverse the direction of the screw gun for another minute. So 5mins total (2 of which using this actual product) and it does the trick every time Just made American Wheat, had a higher than expected OG of 1050 and with dry yeast I was down to 1017 under a weak.

Save your back, just buy this.

Totally aerated in 20 seconds

Great aeration wand! Powerful, so careful with drill power. Use pulses, 20 seconds max. Solid construction and stainless steel.

Makes whirlpooling and aeration easy

This fits nicely in my 3/8" drill. Whirlpooling is a breeze and also does great with aeration. You just want to be careful with hitting the stainless steel vessel while this is spinning.
