That may be the cheapest, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's the best.

I dump my wort in the bucket and stir it vigorously. Seems to be working so far.

Actually you only need to use pure oxygen for approx. 20-40 secs. provided its added as fine bubbles and not a big blast.

I run .25 lpm for 1-2 minutes. It barely creates foam on the top which means it's working.

Let me clarify: with time and a bit more effort, it works just as good, and it's way cheaper, which makes it IMHO, the best. But to each, his own.

I guess everyone's definition of "best" is different. Personally, I try to introduce as little unfiltered air by stirring or agitation as necessary since it's, unfiltered.

Bobby, do you use one of the williams regulators? Are there numbers on the dial or something to know what LPM you are running it at?

if not, do any of you williams regulator users have a specific place you set the dial to know what rate you are pumping o2 in?

Bump for this question. Just purchased mine and would love to know.

I've not ever paid attention to my dial setting, I just know you should aim for a slow steady stream of small O2 bubbles. You want to avoid blasting it.
