Default What off taste should I expect?

My last batch I brewed while i was cooling the wort down after the boil I stirred fairly heavy. There was a little bit of splashing but mostly I had a nice whirlpool going. I didn't know that this was not good. I have purchased a immersion chiller so this will not happen again. I am just curious to what off flavors to expect from adding oxygen during the cool down.

You are good. It's only important not to add oxygen after you pitch the yeast! Whew!

In fact, you should aerate with o2 before you pitch

Don't worry, hot side aeration isn't thought to be the concern it was made out to be years ago.

Ah I mis interpreted, HSA. Yeah, it's more of a homebrew boogeyman these days

Pre-pitching of yeast you want to aerate your wort so stirring & splashing should not be a problem.

The yeast need oxygen to multiply, you should always aerate/oxygenate your wort after cooling and prior to pitching yeast.

Once I get the wort in my carboy I give it a good shake. But I was reading that before the wort is room temperature that oxygen was bad for the beer.

Yes,it's def the reproduction phase where yeast need the o2. You then get healthy,very hungry yeast.

Yeah as Shooter said, hot side aeration is not really an issue
