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

These tubes are made from PET and are what are used to make PET bottles.   These are similar to what White Labs used to use for selling and distributing homebrew yeast pitches.

Possible homebrew uses include storing yeast slurry and general small parts storage. On the non-brewing front, I’ve also found these handy for storage for smaller items when traveling.
