Why An Oxygen 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 an oxygen flow meter.  A flow meter, gives you an idea of flow rate

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.

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.
