I have been looking for an oxygenation set-up (for a o2 torch tank). The set-ups i am finding are like 50 dollars for a brass regulator and a stainless stone.

Pardon me for being a miser, but that regulator is just a small brass valve... seems a little expensive. anyone know where to get one of these on the cheap? maybe on that is not purposed for brewing specifically?

I also have one available for $34.99. I also have a 10% discount going on right now just to make things easier on the pocket book.

Thanks,

Ed

i'm just gonna use a crappy old propane torch head. I've had it for years and as long as it fits and doesn't leak, I'm using it.

Probably costs about $10 new for the torch, then add a $14 airstone and some $2 tubing.

Or just go with one of the deals above on your next order.

Its not gonna fit, I tried it already. I didnt want to spend a lot of money on a little valve either.

Will an O2 tank fit in place of a propane or MAPP gas tank on a standard "burnzomatic" type torch? I was thinking I could put an 02 tank on an old torch, put some vinyl tubing in place of the torch tip, and attach an airstone to that. Has anyone tried this approach?

It would be awesome if that would work but sadly it will not. MAPP and Propane cylinders are right hand threads where the O2 cylinders are left handed.

Unfortunately through my research I haven't found anything cheaper than the $30-odd bucks for just the regulator plus the tank cost. I'd love to hear if anyone has another way.

The O2 is not for boiling. O2 is pumped into the wort for the yeast to use, at yeast pitching time.
