    Airbrush Compressor vs Fish Pump

    I have just put together an aeration system with a Tetra 10 air pump a 2 micron sani-filter and 2 micron stone. I started to wonder what about using my airbrush compressor instead of the Tetra pump. What would be the pros/cons? What PSI setting should I use?

    Wort Aeration & How To Build A Free Pump

    One of my favorite aspects of home brewing is the ingenuity that can be used throughout the process. Some people have the finances to buy the biggest and best equipment, some like me do not. For me, the fun comes in when I can use some ingenuity to come up with a way to do something cheaper and...

    Pitching and bottom-up transfert to fermenter

    Dear brewers, I have been looking at several places but cannot find any reliable info on this specific topic. With some friends, we bought a SS brewtech chronical fermenter. As mentioned in many textbooks and in the user manual, the best is to fill the fermenter by the bottom, in order to...

    Oxygenating/aerating tea prior to primary fermentation?

    Hello, community! I am moving from homebrewing beer to making kombucha, and I'm working to see what of my beer making gear I can adapt for kombucha use. I have an oxygenation stone for aerating wort and I'm wondering if the SCOBY yeasts benefit from well-oxygenated tea, just like yeasts benefit...

    Where do You Find Notable Difference with Oxygenation Stones?

    I've been trying out some oxygenation stones (both 0.5 micron + O2 tank, and aquarium pump + 2 micron stone) lately. My standing process is I pass the wort through a strainer as I transfer from kettle to fermentor and let that aerate/splash. I did two trials where I split my wort into 3...

    Sanitize HEPA Aeration Filter?

    Hey all, I'm about to use an aquarium aeration device for first time and am sanitizing. Can I put the whole tube, HEPA filter included, into my starsan bucket? Will that ruin it? Thanks!

    What happens if you aerate mead towards the end of primary fermentation?

    I've read on multiple occasions that it's bad for the mead. What is it that actually happens? Some people have mentioned that your mead can oxidize - what does this mean? I only know of the term "oxidize" from rusting w/ iron - is there a comparable process taking place here? I ask, in part...

    How late can/should you aerate a huge beer?

    I'm seen a few threads and recipes for huge beers where a brewer will aerate once or twice a day for the first few days of fermentation. Sometimes this aeration occurs during a sugar addition. So, how late into fermentation can you aerate without worrying about oxidation? What is the ideal...
