Default Aeration kit..??

Williamsbrewing Aeration Kit

I ordered this kit last Friday and can't wait to get it in the mail... too bad I brewed this weekend, so it'll be another week before I can test it out... Has anyone else ordered this kit..??

I purchased and used this system for years until the stone got clogged. I purchased a new stone about a year ago.

It says it oxygenates the wort to 80 percent. Is this adequate or should pure O2 be used? 80 percent sounds pretty good to me.

I was going to bring up the pure o2 option as well but since he already purchased this setup... Jester, in case you weren't aware another option for oxygenating is with a similar setup to what you purchased at about the same price that uses Benzomatic oxygen tanks instead of an air pump. The two differences is using pure oxygen naturally but also you need to purchase the tanks at about $8 each which will last for 4-6 batches. I use the o2 setup but with what you bought, you at least don't have consumables to purchase.

I thought about the pure 02 systems, but I have a ton of aquarium pumps laying around the house... so it seemed like the best thing for me... this will let me use some parts from a past hobby... hehehee...

I have the same setup but with the Bernz O2 tank. I've used it several times with success. Sure is nice not to have to shake 40 lbs of liquid.

I don't know how long it takes with a pump, but the tank system does its thing in 1 to 2 minutes. I think the 80% is the saturation point that either system will get you to.
