Default Inline wort aeration build

I did some searching and i cannot find the thread I am looking for. I am looking for a build where i can add O2 to the wort after it comes out of the chiller. Similar to the Chill-Wizard from Sabco. (http://www.brew-magic.com/chillwiz2.html)

I would like to hard plumb it in, some how add a diffusion stone, let the wort pass through it and them I'm done. Does anyone know if there is a thread out there that I cannot find? I'm sure someone has already done this.

$829 for a chilling / aeration device. Are they crazy?

That's alot of money for something that I'm not convinced is all that important frankly.

Assuming a healthy yeast pitch and you are making "normal" beers (less than 1.080 OG), I've gotten away without any aeration whatsover and produced clean and properly attenuated beers.

Seems like a better way is to buy the standard $40-60 oxygen kit from your homebrew shop of choice and drag it out for that occasional big beer.

My 0.02.

How much did he charge for this? It would work well with my setup.

Get in touch with him to find out what will work with your system.

I believe the parts cost was around $35.00 without the cam-locks. That may have changed. I supplied the airstone, QDs, and Teflon tape.

Very nice, thank you sir.

From the looks of yours, i have everything i need except for the stone. I have left over nipples and tees so i could do this. Question, how is the stone mounted? That is the part I don't get.

Yeah, I won't be ordering one of those. I have extra parts left over and I just want to build the assembly that holds the stone. Thats all i'm after.

A couple questions on yours, what did you use for the sight glass and where did you get it?

The bottom picture you posted, the left hand "t" what is sticking out of it? Right hand "t", I'm assuming thats your diffusion stone?
