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 nearly double the oxygenation as you would by shaking or stirring your fermenter! 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. Diffusion stones may also be cleaned by placing in boiling water or by briefly baking it in the oven. Be sure to never handle the diffusion stone with your bare hands as natural skin oils can clog the stone’s pores. Carboy shown for illustrative purposes, does not come with carboy.
