I just bought a aquarium pump to aerate my wort which the package states is rated for 5 gallons. I was wondering if anyone know a good trick to determine air flow rate (ml/L/min?) to determine how long to aerate my wort. Or should I just sit back and follow the 30-60 minute rule of thumb.

I'm guessing the rating is for the size of the aquarium. Do you have any other info from in or on the box? If not, do you have a link to the manufacturer?
