Default Injecting Oxygen and Chilling

I remember sonewhere i saw a system that chilled and injected O2 at the same time.

But I cannot find it anywhere. I'm looking for an easy and measurable system that can cool the wort as I move it from Boil Kettle to fermentor and oxygenate it at the same time.

Buying one or DIY is either option but my DIY skills are a bit suspect :-)

You want a conterflow chiller of some kind Blichmann makes a nice one. then After the work goes throught the cooler you Oxygenate. using a stone again several compnies sell them. I would just buy them but if you want to DIY build a counterflow chiller its not that hard and buy the stone and rent the oxygen tank

while you're at you should get a device that will rack, ferment, condition and bottle your beer....Remote control brewing, maybe they have an ap for that?

Despite other replies, what you're looking to do is quite common. Most brewers build their own.
Fast chilling and the addition of clean oxygen are both beneficial.
If you look at Sabco's BrewMagic site, they have a Chill-Wizard that does just what you are looking for at $830. We could build you the same thing for $200 less.
Blichmann sells a plate chiller, not a counter flow and it's overpriced. Plate chillers can be had from several vendors at a reasonable price.

Thank you One Hoppy Guy. I appreciate it. Yes that was exactly what I was looking at. I think I could probably build one for less. Right now I use an immersion chiller and then a o2 wand.

For speeding up my brewing days I'm thinking if I can incorporate both the plate chiller and the o2 infusion at roughly the same time it would save some time and save me additional steps.

That looks awesome and ridiculous at the same time.

Is saving that 30 seconds really that valuable?

You'll love the plate chiller you just have to make sure you keep it clean.

The key is to keep it simple - here's my knockout setup:


Untitled by brewerJP

As chilled wort passes I have my air compressor injecting air into it. I prefer to use air because it's impossible to over-aerate. And yes - it is highly filtered! I have a Meissner 0.1um capsule filter inline and a coalescing filter before that to capture any liquids.
