Sanitary Air Filter,Ferroday 4Pcs Water Fittings for Beer Brew Keg and Homebrew (4pcs of Pack)


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 5/16″ barbed connections
  • Filters down to 0.023 micron at 99.99% efficiency
  • The large square filter has greater surface area than other filters
  • Perfect for aeration or oxygenation systems to Filter out any contaminants.

Note from HBF: These type of filters are sometimes used as part of oxygenation or aeration setups.  I’ve also used a similar filter to help start a siphon.  See MoreBeer’s Sterile Siphon Starter for more info on that process.  The basic idea is you use a compatible carboy hood and racking cane and blow into a compatible filter to start the flow of liquid.  The filter used in MoreBeer’s setup looks similar to this one, although I’m not certain it’s identical.

Oxygen Flow Meter [Assist with Wort Oxygenation] – $11.95 + free prime ship

CNBTR LZQ-3 Acylic Flowmeter Gas Acrylic Metal Fitting Oxygen Flow Meter 0-5 LPM

CNBTR LZQ-3 Acylic Flowmeter Gas Acrylic Metal Fitting Oxygen Flow Meter 0-5 LPM


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Center distance: 65.5mm
  • Flow range: 0-5LPM
  • Working pressure: ≤0.6Mpa
  • Widely used for measuring and controlling the flow of oxygen
  • Product function: to measure gas single-phase non-pulsating flow

Most regulators that homebrewers use for oxygenating wort are simple setups – Example – via William’s Brewing.  They attach to disposable oxygen tanks (typically sourced from a local hardware store) and are little more than on and off valves.  No gauges, no pressure control (other than the degree to which you open and close the valve) and no flow control.

Time and rate give you an idea of how much oxygen you’re really adding to your wort.  Time is easy to track.  Rate, not so much, at least with typical homebrew O2 regulators.  If you want more or less oxygen for your next batch, it’s mostly a guessing game.

Enter a flow meter.  This particular model has a range of 0 to 5 LPM.  This model also appears to have an knob that allows you to adjust the flow rate.  Note: .6 MPa is about 87 PSI.

With both time and flow rate you can establish a more reliable baseline to work off of.  This information should also help you to get better repeatability between brews.

Note that these are typically used for medical applications.  I’m not sure what the barb size is.  You will need to figure out tubing and connections to a compatible regulator and aeration/oxygenation stone.

NY Brew Supply O2-REG14-OIS-WAND Oxygenation Kit with Stainless Wand

NY Brew Supply O2-REG14-OIS-WAND Oxygenation Kit with Stainless Wand.  Includes: valve/regulator to attach to oxygen tank, 4Ft of silicone tubing, filter, stainless aeration wand with removable stone.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

“Oxygenating your wort prior to pitching the yeast is a vital step in the brewing process that many brewers do not pay much attention to. Ideally your wort would have an oxygen level of 8 PPM (parts per million) however most brewers only achieve 2.5-4.5 PPM without using an aeration system. Using this wort aeration system you can easily achieve much higher oxygen levels by injecting pure o2! Regulator attaches directly to a disposable oxygen tank-NOT INCLUDED(available at most hardware stores) Using a wort aeration system will not only be far more safe than shaking your carboy around but will also contribute to lower final gravities, quicker fermentation, and a cleaner fermentation. Cleaning your aeration system is as easy as putting your air tubing and oxygen diffusion stone in your sanitized solution. Be sure to never handle the diffusion stone with your bare hands as natural skin oils can clog the stone’s pores. This deluxe kit comes with a 22″ long stainless aeration wand with stone, air/02 filter, 4ft of silicone tubing, and a brass valve/regulator to attach to your disposable oxygen tank.”

 

Oxygenation has made a noticeable difference in my fermentations.  Lag times are reduced and fermentation seems more vigorous.

Oxygen System w/Stainless Wand, Tubing and .5 Micron Stone – $59.99

Oxgenation System from William’s Brewing.  Includes oxygen regulator (made in the US) for use with disposable oxygen bottles (not included, typically found at local hardware stores), tubing, stainless steel wand and .5 micron aeration stone.

Why aerate your wort? – from William’s Brewing…  “Yeast needs oxygen to reproduce and produce strong cell walls. If the cell walls are weak, the yeast will have a low tolerance for alcohol, and can die before fully fermenting out the wort. Particularly in worts with starting gravities in excess of 1.050, this can contribute to long lag times, slow ferments, and higher than normal finishing gravities. Like an air stone in a fish tank provides oxygen for fish to breathe, wort aeration provides needed oxygen for yeast respiration and growth.”  [full description]

As of this posting, this is selling for $59.99. Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.

Oxyview Flow Meter [Assist with Wort Oxygenation]

61qi5gicbcl-_sx522_

Oxyview Flow Meter 1 3/8″ X 7/16″/0-3 L/M


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Oxyview is a pneumatic real-time oxygen flow meter for use with oxygen cylinders, concentrators and other oxygen delivery systems. This device can measure the flow rate of oxygen from 0-6 l/m. It can be attached at all times and used to assure and measure oxygen flow rate. No batteries are required for product operation. This unique flow meter works in any position and is resistant to heat, humidity and altitude.


Most regulators that homebrewers use for oxygenating wort are simple setups – Example – via MoreBeer.  They attach to disposable oxygen tanks (typically sourced from a local hardware store) and are little more than on and off valves.  No gauges, no pressure control (other than the degree to which you open and close the valve) and no flow control.

Time and rate give you an idea of how much oxygen you’re really adding to your wort.  Time is easy to track.  Rate, not so much, at least with typical homebrew O2 regulators.  If you want more or less oxygen for your next batch, it’s mostly a guessing game.

The Oxyview Flow Meter is a pneumatic (no electricity required) real-time oxygen flow meter that works in any position.  Flow rate is displayed in liters per minute.  This particular model has a range of 0 to 3 LPM.  This allows you to know what rate of oxygen is going into your wort.

I’ve used one of these for years and it has worked great for me.  Note that these are typically used for medical applications.  As such, the barb size isn’t what I’d call standard, at least by homebrewing standards. You will need to figure out tubing and connections to your existing regulator and aeration/oxygenation stone.
