Mine is red. All the others like it at HD were red. Maybe it is a regional thing?

I think that most real oxygen tanks probably are green but these disposable oxygen canisters by Bernzomatic are red.

There is an aeration store built into the copper tube right after the CFC to add oxygen to the wort before it goes into the carboy.

Beautiful looking rig. I have one concern though and that is having a canister of highly flammable oxygen that close to an open flame...

Oxygen is not flammable. How ever it will aid in burning everything around it. Sorry, I got carried away.

You might be thinking that I have a burner under my mash tun but I don't.
It really isn't that close to the flame since it is under my mash tun and it is not a direct fire. This is a Herms system and I recirculate through a copper coil in my HLT to pick up heat. I only have burners under the left keg and the middle keg. There is no burner there for the keg on the right. There is also shielding around the front and sides where the burners are. Hopefully I am safe but maybe some others would like to chime in here.
