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, Matches 2016 Deal! + Hands on Review

The OxyWand™ - 0.5 Micron

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.

More Info

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

  • Get your grain bed evenly mixed and break up dough balls in seconds!
  • Using a handheld electric drill, this heavy-duty stirrer makes mashing in a breeze
  • Made from all stainless steel with a 1/4″ hex head to securely attach to your drill

This stainless mixer attaches to an electric drill for easy and thorough mixing of your mash. To get the best mash efficiency it is important to break up dough balls (clumps of grain) and ensure that the grain bed is not compacted. Allowing maximum recirculation through your grain bed will always yield higher extraction / efficiency rates of your brew. Are far as mixing grain goes, this stirrer is much more efficient and less time consuming than a mash paddle or large spoon.

Simply attach to your portable electric drill and secure the 1/4″ hex head tightly.

Overall length is 23.5″ with a mixer diameter of 2.75″. Highly recommended for all sizes of BrewZillas.

Fermentap Magnetic Stir Plate Y705

This is valid 5/30/24 only while supplies last


About Stir Plates and Erlenmeyer Flasks

Stir plates are pretty simple machines. There’s a small electric motor in a housing with a flat surface for you to set your vessel on that has wort needing to be stirred. When the motor spins, a magnetic field is created as a by-product of the electric motor. This is used together with a small plastic-coated magnet that looks like a small capsule, called a stir bar. If your flask is filled with wort, the stir bar spins around at the speed of the electric motor in the stir plate and creates turbulence in your wort. It creates a vortex like an underwater tornado as the spinning motion pulls wort down towards it and then flings it away when it contacts the stir bar.

This underwater tornado is the key to the stir plate’s success in preparing starters. This stir plate motion has two functions: 1) Keeping the yeast constantly in suspense and not letting them settle out, 2) The constant circulation of wort helps expose all of the wort to the surface where it can interact with incoming oxygen and purge CO2 developed by the yeast’s fermentation processes. There have been experiments done that show you can more than double the amount of yeast cell growth in a starter made with a stir plate versus a starter that doesn’t.

The vessel of choice for starters made on a stir plate is the Erlenmeyer flask (named after a German chemist who invented it in 1860). Its wide, flat base make it stable to sit on your brew table or on the stir plate without concerns of it getting bumped and tipping over. And very importantly, its flat bottom allows your stir bar to rest in the center and spin. A glass growler with its domed-in bottom, will not keep the magnet centered and then won’t work to stir the wort.

When looking for Erlenmeyer flasks, you want to make sure you get one made with Borosilicate glass. It is less sensitive to growth/shrinkage with temperature extremes, meaning it can go through thermal shock with less risk of breaking. But there’s an important caution here. Borosilicate is not recommended for direct heating. I heard from a Customer Service Manager at a homebrew shop about the horrific pictures he got from someone that was carrying their boiling starter wort from stove to sink when the glass bottom broke and showered his [sandaled] foot with glass and 200 degree wort. So boil in a separate vessel before pouring into your flask, or let it sit and cool a bit before you move to the cooling stage.

Last Call… William’s Brewing Oxygen System w/Stainless Wand, Tubing and .5 Micron Stone – on sale for $44.29 via Spring Sale

Oxgenation System from William’s Brewing

More Info

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

Why aerate your wort? 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.

The advantage of the Oxygen Aeration System is that the wort can be aerated to 60% of its oxygen holding capacity in just 20 seconds, something that takes our Air Aeration System 5 minutes to accomplish. This shorter aeration means less foaming of the wort before pitching, an important consideration in higher gravity beers. This system includes a .5 micron aeration wand, for thorough oxygen dispersion.

Includes 22″ Aeration Wand with a .5 micron stainless aeration stone, 4′ of tubing, and an Oxygen Regulator for standard hardware store oxygen welding tanks. Pictured red oxygen bottle is not included, these disposable 1.4 and 2.1 ounce left hand thread bottles can be purchased at any hardware store in the welding or brazing section. One bottle will aerate 20 to 30 batches. Pictured glass carboy is not included.

Why buy a William’s Oxygen Aeration System? It has a 22″ U.S. made stainless wand, longer than any other system, so you can easily reach the bottom of a 5 or 6 gallon fermenter without dipping the plastic tubing into the wort.

Unlike other Oxygen Aeration Systems, which feature imported regulators and wands, all parts are made in U.S.A.


 

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.

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 3 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.

Knowing flow rate gives you the missing piece to the puzze. This allows you to know what rate of oxygen is going into your wort.

The model pictured is from Kegland and uses EVABarrier tubing. If you’re not an EVABarrier and DuoTight user, no big deal, it’s really not necessary. Just grab some EVABarrier tubing to use with this.

Note that a lot of the oxygen flow meters on the market these are typically used for medical applications.  You will need to figure out tubing and connections to your existing regulator and aeration/oxygenation stone.
