I built it recently but I can't remember if the prices changed. You don't have to buy those parts from him. I found each part for this fixture online for different stores. However, i didn't want to pay shipping for 2-3 different companies so I bought it all from him.

Question for you guys who are using inline aeration fittings. How long are you running the oxygen for? For those using sanitary air and not pure O2, does the inline stone provide sufficient aeration for even high gravity beers? A 5 gal batch can be run off through a plate chiller in about five to ten minutes. Common wisdom for sanitary air aeration with a stone is 20 to 30 minutes in the fermenter. Does the inline stone cause more air to be dissovled in the wort in a given amount of time compared to aerating the whole five gallons in the fermenter (due to surface area exposure)?

I stopped using mine. I did not the gunk that would build up, not worth it. When I did use it I would run it the whole time at a trickle.

Here's what I did. Maybe you can get some more ideas on how you want to build yours.

If you need a stone welded to a fitting let me know. I will do it for free.

I was considering using one of these NPT to Digital Probe compression fittings to insert my Williams Brewing aeration wand/stone into a tee at the output of my therminator. Seems like it would be cheap and easy:

But I have started to favor using an aquarium pump and stone for aeration and I was wondering if inline sanitary air could achieve proper wort aeration levels.

I have the O2 line clamped until I turn the O2 on. I pump boiling wort thru my chiller, tubing and oxygenator for 5 min to sterilize. Then, I turn on the counterflow water and wait until I get the wort under 70F and then I turn on on the O2 and open the clamp.

Can happen without a check valve.
I set my O2 tank pressure above my pump pressure (15 psi) to prevent any feed back.

I built one also and quit using it. You have to tear it down and clean it often or it gets nasty inside. Also if it starts foaming too much you can't get all of your wort in the fermenter until the foam settles.

It was more of a pain then it was worth so I went back to dropping the stone in the fermenter after it's filled. Much easier to control.
