Thought this might appeal to beginners since it's cheap and easy to use. I got the idea after reading in the British brewing textbook Brewing: Science and Practice that traditional British ale breweries aerated their wort by passing it over a fantail as it went into the fermenter.

Nice idea. After seeing this I thought maybe I could use my glass wine airator for the wort. It would require me to use another container that I could control the pour speed with. But...do you think it is worth it or necessary? I mean, I poured my wort violently into the ferminter and shook the bucket up petty well...If more airation is needed then I guess it would be worth while.

I think with this you're just trying to avoid shaking & sloshing; you are not going to get much extra O2 The wine aerator probably wouldn't be worth the extra work

I usually just shake the **** out of my fermenter and it always seems to give me beer. :P

I like the method of first putting wort into the bottling bucket and then opening the spigot and letting it drop like a mofo into the fermenter.

Tryin that Saturday

Olive oil costs less than copper!

Nice fantail, though!

I actually primarily used this stainless steel version

And yeah, I've heard about using olive oil, New Belgium apparently does that. But I'm afraid I'll use too much.
