Just get yours online. Like this: (edit: that's kinda expensive, might shop around)

I use a very similar one from my LHBS but it's cheaper and has an inline filter. Works great.

I wish I had bought one of the stainless steel wands, but was able to rig up my stone to a racking cane with good results.

I just bought the Williams regulator/wand/airstone as well. Went to Lowe's and bought two canisters which don't weigh anything. Got to the register and told the lady that I hoped there was something in them because they were so light and she said "yeah... air don't weigh much." Good thing I wasn't drinking anything because I would have snorted it out my nose that was so damn funny. Now it's kind of an inside joke with my sons and we use that line as often as we can. Not brewing for 2 more weeks but I seriously hope there is oxygen in those canisters!

I did kind of think that when I first picked it up. But I have gone through 4 five gallon batches @ 60 seconds each, and am waiting for it to run out. Just remember you only want small bubbles to be coming out. Doesn't take much to open it when you start..

Silicone tubing, airstone, brass regulator from NB. Boil the tubing and stone together, super easy.

From Amazon I ordered a .5 micron stone posted on homebrewfinds.com. With my Prime membership it was less than 6 bucks shipped and arrived in two days.

For the regulator, I went with the all brass number sold at Adventures in Homebrewing for $29.99. It seemed pretty heavy duty so I spent the extra ten bucks on it compared to the Williams. I'm in Michigan though so shipping wasn't a concern.

Both items have 1/4" barbs, so I just bought 6' of tubing to go along.

You can usually get that same regulator in kits, Adventures in Homebrewing has the full kit, but I think I saved $9-15 buying the pieces separately compared to other kits I've seen online.

I did not buy an inline filter, and hopefully I don't regret that in the future.
