Default oxygen canisters from home depot

Those of you who are using the oxygen canisters to oxygenate their wort, what are you using as a valve and connector to the tubing?

I had an old torch set that I got the parts from. You can buy just the parts you need from online homebrew stores, or even your local shop.

Yeah, I was afraid you'd say that. Beyond removing the end of the torch, did you have to remove or add anything else?

This is one example of a "regulator" for the hardware store tanks. Some other HB shops sell them as well.

I didn't tear anything apart. The oxygen tanks require a reverse thread valve and I had one of those with a barb fitting on it (from the propane/O2 torch kit). I just got a simple air stone and some tubing and it worked fine.

Just get yours online. Like this: (edit: that's kinda expensive, might shop around)

Williams sell a stainless rod with a welded stone and cheap regulator.

Works well.

I use those home depot canisters, but its hard to tell when full/empty. Bought one last time and when i got to the point where i was going to oxygenate (Williams Brewing regulator) nothing came out. When they do work they work great, made my WLP 565 dupont yeast kick hard and fast

I use the stainless rod as well. Not sure if it makes a difference, but I put the air filter that I had from the aerator. I tend to keep two of the canisters on hand, just in case I empty one mid oxygenate.

I use the Williams one as well. It works great and is easy to clean. I scrub it down then boil the stone for 5 minutes.
