Aerating your wort leads to faster, healthier fermentation, and that means better beer! Stop lifting and shaking carboys to try to introduce oxygen for your yeast--smart brewers use the right tool for the job.
Our aeration system (FE380) comes with an inline filter, stainless steel diffusion stone, and tubing. This kit does not include the air pump. Most aquarium style air pumps will work; we recommend a deep water pump.
About the inline filters: There are two sides to the filter - an "in" and an "out". The direction you use doesn't matter, however, you want to take note of which way you first push air through it and always keep it that way. There is an arrow on the edge of the filter housing that we use to keep the airflow going one direction when using it. The filter should never get wet, so don't try and sanitize it by dunking it in sanitizer. If you want to clean the outside of it, use Alpet D2. To store the filter, use a little tinfoil on the ""In"" of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag. Can last up to 1 year. Discard if there are any signs of discoloration.
STORE DRY AT ALL TIMES. DO NOT SANITIZE FILTER.
