Default Aerate too much?

I use one of those Aerating spinner things with my drill to aerate.

I was wondering if it's possible to aerate too much?

Wyeast has a good video here on the subject:


Looks like you can't over aerate due to physics of how much 02 is in the air.

Yep gotta love physics. There is also a maximum point where the wort can not hold any more air in solution and it will bubble right out.

But yes you can over aerate, if using pure oxygen
