I don't think you can over-oxygenate. For one, the yeast need the oxygen for the first part of their life cycle. The more oxygen disolved in the liquid, the happier the yeast will be. Besides, without intoducing heat or a pressure chamber to the mix, there's a saturation point after which no more oxygen will be absorbed anyway. Anything else is waste.

Default Source for O2?

After a few slow or stuck fermentations and lots of input here, plus the incentive of a gift certificate at Christmas, I ordered an oxygenation system from MoreBeer.com. It sounds like most folks get their O2 canisters from Home Depot or Lowes. Is that correct?

I ask because I just called my local HD and Lowes, and no one seemed to know if they had them, and if so, what department would stock these. Any input on this would be appreciated!

Welding Area. Bernzomatic Red O2 Tanks. About $8.50 per tank. Guess you'll get 8-10 uses out of it.

What DB said. Head for the tools section then look for welding supplies. Just make sure you get the red one... not the yellow one!

Default boiling air stones

After losing another (cheap) air stone to sanitation fluid, I've decided to boil my air stones for sanitation. I am hoping they last longer this way.

I find the stones break right off... the last one broke off before I even got a chance to use it. One of these times they're going to break off right in my beer.......
