I'm thinking about buying an aeration system from northern brewers buts it's a bit costly. A average fish tank pump is 10 bucks the NB system comes with a in line HEPA filter. Has anyone DIYed one from a local pet store and is the in line filter necessary.

The stone will run you about 20, tubing another 5-8, filter 5-10, plus the pump. You also need a tricky reduction fitting if you use a s/s stone, that ran me 7 in brass fitting workaround.

I piecemealed it trying to save in i think it cost me more and was a lot of trouble. If i could rewind 7 days, id just get the kit from williamsbrewing.

Another reasonable option would be to get a plastic paint stirrer from mega-low mart. Attach to a drill and whip to a froth. That's what I do.
