    I brewed a Kolsch yesterday and tried out the medical O2 aeration method. I hooked up the O2 to
    the gas port and pressurized for 1 minute and then shook it for a few minutes. I hooked up the

    PID just ho...

    Nice and informative thread!It's a good idea for dual purposing, but for yeast washing aren't
    you concerned about thorough sanitation of that basket? With all that mesh and welds there are
    areas that ...

    I'm waiting to hear Skid's brewday report too. My biggest concern with this method would be
    over working the grain and end up extracting a lot of tannins. Otherwise, it is automation on
    the cheap and ...

    Working on building a modified version of this system. My plan is to also hook up to a HLT so I
