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.

6 x White Labs Servomyces Yeast Nutrient from MoreBeer – $9.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Servomyces Yeast Nutrient

6 x Servomyces from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Add servomyces to your beer to increase yeast health because healthy yeast make better tasting beer. Other benefits include a decrease in fermentation time and increased alcohol potential. Servomyces stimulates the uptake of maltose which results in drier beer with higher alcohol yields. It is made by saturating beer yeast with zinc and then drying it. Zinc is a missing nutrient in wort and is more readily absorbed from dead yeast cells than by adding it directly as a mineral. Originally available only to professional brewers, this wonderful yeast nutrient is now to the homebrewing community, thanks to White Labs and Lallemand. Since it’s introduction, we have been after White Labs to make a smaller, more easy-to-use version of the product. It wasn’t until our very own Shea Comfort came up with the capsule idea that they were able to move forward and deliver this “super food” to us! Olin Schultz of MoreBeer did an intial side-by-side trial batch using “Servo” and found the beer with servo started faster, fermented quicker, and finished 1 gravity point less than the control batch. While it is not a cure-all pill for your brew, it offers the serious home brewer an easy, effective way to help ensure yeast health. Servomyces was developed in Germany at the Weihenstephan brewing school and the Munich University, so of course it conforms to the German Purity Law! Contains 6 capsules good for 5 gallons of wort each. Add Servo in the last 10 minutes of the boil. If your ferment does not require a boil ( as in a mead), open the capsule and add the Servomyces directly.

MoreBeer 2,000 mL Erlenmeyer Flask – $19.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Erlenmeyer Flask - 2000 mL Y430

2,000 mL/2 Liter Borosilicate Flask from MoreBeer for making yeast starters.

More Info

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

These Erlenmeyer flasks help the best brewers to make large yeast starters to get their beer fermenting fast. Large populations of active yeast help ensure a healthy fermentation, free of off flavors.  One of our favorite things about the Erlenmeyer flasks is that you can boil your starters directly in them!

Our large 2000ml Erlenmyer Flask is the ideal vessel to make a large yeast starter for 5 gallon lagers and high gravity brews. Because it is made from borosilicate glass you can move it from a boil on your gas stove into a cold water bath for cooling, without the risk of cracking. (We do not recommend the use of an electric element. If this cannot be avoided, we recommend using a larger pot as a hot water bath on the stove.) This means you can do the whole process in one container, keeping it simple and helping to reduce the risk of contamination when transferring from one container to another.

Recommended Process for Use of Flask:
Double Boiler Method

It is important for your safety to heat water in the flask with a heat source that distributes heat evenly. Our manufacturer has confirmed that direct heat to the glass can break down its integrity and break if the heat source doesn’t distribute evenly.

Morebeer! recommends using the “double boiler method.”  This process involves using a boiling water bath on the outside of the flask to heat up the water inside the flask.  All you need is a kettle 3 gallons or larger.  This process is much safer and efficient. If the flask should break or boil over, your kettle will be there to collect the contents, thus keeping your stove clean and keeping you away from potential harm.

Features

  • Massive 2L (2000mL) Capacity
  • Made from Borosilicate Glass
  • Fantastic price for a flask of this size
  • Produced for MoreBeer!
  • 6.5″ base 2.5″ top 10.75″H

Why make a yeast starter? (from our FAQ)
We build starters for 3 main reasons. First, to ensure yeast health. By making a starter 1-3 days in advance, you ensure that your yeast is healthy and strong and ready to do its job. Second, to create more yeast. By making the starter you will increase the cell count of the yeast, giving you a better chance of keeping bacteria’s and wild yeasts from fermenting your wort. Third, if you are making high gravity beers. If you are making a high gravity beer (1.060+) you will need more yeast to start the ferment faster. High gravity beers will also finish more completely when you pitch ample quantities of yeast.

In the lab world, these flasks are known as “Student Grade”. A great flask for making yeast starters!(Student grade is not the highest grade flasks and will have minor defects)
