  • NEVER SHAKE YOUR FERMENTATION VESSEL AGAIN! – Aerating your wort has traditionally been a strenuous process of shaking your fermentation vessel in order to manually increase oxygen content. Now, our pre-assembled oxygenation kit has made introducing dissolved oxygen into your wort easier than ever!
  • OXYGENATE YOUR WORT IN JUST MINUTES – Our high efficiency 2 micron infusion stone diffuses oxygen into your wort in no time!
  • KEEP YOUR YEAST HEALTHY – Reduce fermentation lag time and reduce the chances of introducing off flavors into your beer
  • NEVER BUY AN OXYGEN TANK AGAIN – Using air is limitless and free!
  • KEEP CONTAMINATES OUT – Other methods of oxygenation can run the risk of contamination. Our pumps use an inline sanitary air filter that will keep bacteria and other contaminates from entering into your fermentation vessel.

Oxygenation/aeration generally improves the strength and vigor of your fermentations and helps to decrease lag times.  Note: This setup does not include the pictured glass carboy.

Using a Flow Meter For Increased Repeatability

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.

MoreBeer’s OxyWand .5 Micron Oxygenation Stone and Wand – $23.99, Limited Supply + Hands on Review

Oxygenation Wand

MoreBeer’s OxyWand!  26″ long stainless steel oxygenation wand.  .5 micron sintered stone.  1/4″ flare fitting means the OxyWand can be easily disassembled for cleaning and sanitizing.

From MoreBeer: “Yeast across the World have a new best friend, the OxyWand™. Insert the oxygenation wand into your fermenter and pump in thousands of microscopic oxygen bubbles for 1-2 minutes to improve the health of your yeast. Healthy yeast produce amazing flavors and have the stamina to completely finish fermentation.”‘

More Info

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

That is not the only reason yeast love the OxyWand™. Yeast hate to compete with bacteria and you hate to drink them. Sintered stainless stones are made of tightly compressed stainless steel powder to create a porous block through which oxygen can flow. This micro maze is also the perfect environment for bacteria to live in after the stone has been used once in wort. That is why we love to boil our stones prior to use. The stone on the OxyWand™ is connected via a 1/4″ flare fitting and can easily be removed and cleaned after use and then boiled before your next brew day.

The assembly is 26″ long and will easily reach the bottom of glass carboys, dropped into stainless conicals, Speidel fermenters, etc. The 0.5 micron size stone is designed specifically for use with compressed oxygen tanks. You will want to use 1/4″ tubing. See the recommended regulator below to connect to disposable style compressed oxygen cylinders available from your local hardware store.

The advantage of using compressed oxygen to oxygenate is speed – you can oxygenate your wort in 60 seconds as opposed to 5 minutes with aeration. This .5 micron stone can only be used with compressed oxygen because an aeration pump does not supply enough pressure. If you are looking for an Oxywand to use with aeration pumps please see the 2 micron version.

 

Check out our Hands on Review of the OxyWand – note, the review features a slightly different combo.  It’s the same OxyWand, the difference is the addition of an O2 regulator in the reviewed setup.

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.

MoreBeer Oxygenation System – $46.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Oxygenation Kit via MoreBeer

More Info

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

This Oxygenation System pumps pure oxygen into your cooled wort using a disposable oxygen tank and stainless steel diffusion stone. Takes a mere 1-2 minutes of operation to achieve adequate oxygen levels. Comes with a regulator for disposable oxygen tank, sterile inline filter, our threaded .5 micron stainless steel oxygenation stone and tubing.

Yeast need oxygen to make good beer. The problem is that after boiling for an hour the wort is void of oxygen. Fermentations with low levels of oxygen will produce yeast that start slower, have sluggish ferments, and are more likely to poop-out and stop fermenting. On the contrary, fermentations that have been infused with oxygen will have healthier yeast that start faster, ferment faster, have a greater tolerance to alcohol, produce beers with less residual sugar, and produce better overall flavors.

Currently, the standard practice of getting oxygen to the yeast is to splash the wort as it enters the fermenter or to shake the fermenter once full. This practice is definitely better than nothing, however it is impossible to infuse enough oxygen by shaking or splashing and the air you do infuse is usually contaminated to some extent.

Please Note: Disposable Oxygen tank is Not Included. These are available at some hardware stores. Each disposable oxygen tank will last for approximately 10-15 five gallon batches.

About the inline filters: There are two sides to the filter – an “in” and an “out”. The direction you use doesn’t matter, however, you want to take note of which way you first push air through it and always keep it that way. There is an arrow on the edge of the filter housing that we use to keep the air flow going one direction when using it. The filter should never get wet, so don’t dunk it in sanitizer. If you want to clean the outside of it, use Alpet D2. To store the filter, use a little tinfoil on the “In” of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag.

Oxygen Regulator Features:

  • 1/4″ Barb Output
  • Max Delivery Pressure: 100 PSI
  • Max Flow Rate: 180 CFH
  • Regulator is Left Hand Thread
  • Stainless Steel Actuating Rod
  • Machined brass body with adjusting cap, piston and hose connection

 

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

This setup gets you an oxygen tank regulator, tubing an inline sterile filter and a .5 micron oxygenation stone.  Add an oxygen tank (from your local hardware store) to this and you’re good to go.
