Oxygen Regulator Kit
Using compressed oxygen is one of the best ways to aerate wort. It's quick, easy, and limits the risk of contamination. This kit is everything you need except the oxygen tank itself. The brass covered oxygen regulator fits most commonly available oxygen tanks. And the ½ micron Diffusion Stone is ideal for quick, efficient aeration.Kit Includes
- Oxygen Regulator (For Disposable Oxygen Tanks)
- Diffusion Stone 0.5 microns
- 3′ of ¼″ tubing
This high quality product will help provide an optimal environment for yeast and fermentation. Takes a mere 1-2 minutes of operation to achieve adequate oxygen levels. 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 flavours. 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.
