Diffusion Stones, or ‘Air Stones’, are commonly used to aerate wort before fermentation, which helps ensure a healthy start to the fermentation process. Diffusion Stones can be attached to compressed oxygen tanks or air pumps (such as those used with aquariums). This “Stone” is made of stainless steel, so it’s durable, easy to clean, and won’t crumble in your wort after a few uses like other materials! This 1/2 Micron stone produces very small bubbles, which are ideal for efficient absorption of the gas into your wort. However, it takes more pressure to force air through the smaller pores. This is not a problem when using compressed oxygen, but lightly-powered air pumps may not work well.
It’s important to clean and sanitize diffusion stones thoroughly before each use. And it helps to clean the stone immediately after use as well. Boiling the stone for at least 5 minutes in clean water is the only reliable way to clean and sanitize it completely. It’s important to make sure the air being fed into the stone is clean, to prevent contaminants from clogging the stone or infecting the wort. Ensure a clean air source or install an air filter. Avoid touching the porous surface of the stone to prevent any of the pores from becoming clogged.

The most common use for this specific stone is to build an inline oxygenation assembly where the stone is threaded into a 1/2″ NPT TEE so chilled wort passes the stone on the way to the fermenter. It’s important to limit the flow of oxygen in this setup to avoid over saturating the wort.

The barb size is 1/4″ so you can use 3/16″ or 1/4″ ID tubing.

What are others saying?  Search this product’s Amazon reviews for “wort”

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.

Announcing: Kegland Oxygen Flow Meter! – DuoTight and MFL

Oxygen Flow Meter w/ Duotight Fittings FE401

Oxygen Flow Meter w/ Duotight Fittings via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Take the guesswork out of oxygenation with this handy flow meter. If you’re using pure O2 to oxygenate your wort, you’re likely using a disposable cylinder with a simple brass regulator, and have no way to measure how much oxygen is actually being added. You’re essentially left to finding the “sweet spot” on the dial when you open the regulator and aim for the same spot on the next use. Get repeatable results by adding this flow meter to your setup. This device will allow you to dial in the flow rate and help you add the same amount of oxygen from batch to batch.

The flow meter comes with male flare thread inlet and outlet and includes two Duotight fittings. It’s ready for use with 8 mm OD EVABarrier tubing right out of the box, or you can add a swivel nut and barb for use with other size tubings.

For a good starting point, we recommend using a 0.5 micron diffusion stone and adding pure O2 at a 1L/minute flow rate for 60 seconds to acheive the recommened 10-14 ppm dissolved oxygen.

Features:

  • 1/4″ Male Flare Inlet/Outlet
  • Duotight Fittings for 8 mm OD Tubing Included
  • Scaled for 0.1 to 1.4 L/min Flow Rate
  • 3.6″ H x 0.9″ W

 

Why a Flow Meter?

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.

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

  • 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.
