The bottles need a regulator-Williams Brewing=$20.00, plus some 3/16" tubing, and a bubbler stone or wand. I plan to make a wand out of some 1/4" copper tubing with very small holes drilled near the plugged end.

He said he bought the kit...so I'm figureing that's the kit with the regulator, hoses and stone...

I agree that a wand is a great idea, I used a piece of racking cane with a small piece of hose to hold the airstone.

If you plan to rely on holes drilled in the copper tube to work as a diffusor, think again. That will make the bubble size too large and you'll waste a lot of O2 that way. I'd even suggest using disposable aquarium stones if you don't want to pony up for the stainless stones.

Those red bottles are also at HD and Lowes in the tool section near the welding equipment.

You only need to crack the regulator open the slightest bit possible for 30-60 seconds.

With the 2 micron yes with the .5 you will need to turn it up almost all the way at least that the way mine is.

Mine too....

I think I've done a dozen batches so far, and I think the tanks has run dry...

I get about 5-10G brews. I don't mind a little waste for speedy yeast.
