Description

Yeast across the World have a new best friend, the OxyWand™.  Insert the areation wand into your fermenter and pump in thousands of microscopic oxygen bubbles for 1-2 minutes to improve the health of your yeast. Healthy yeast produce amazing flavors and have the stamina to completely finish fermentation. 

That is not the only reason yeast love the OxyWand™.  Yeast hate to compete with bacteria and you hate to drink them.  Sintered stainless stones are made of tightly compressed stainless steel powder to create a porous block through which oxygen can flow. This micro maze is also the perfect environment for bacteria to live in after the stone has been used once in wort. That is why we love to boil our stones prior to use.  The stone on the OxyWand™ is connected via a 1/4" flare fitting and can easily be removed and cleaned after use and then boiled before your next brew day.  

The assembly is 26" long and will easily reach the bottom of glass carboys, dropped into stainless conicals, Speidel fermenters, etc. The 2 micron size stone works well with both compressed oxygen or aeration pumps. You will want to use 1/4" tubing. See the recommended regulator below to connect to disposable style compressed oxygen cylinders available from your local hardware store.  See the high-pressure, deep water style air pump to use with regular air. 

The advantage of using compressed oxygen to oxygenate is speed - you can oxygenate your wort in 60 seconds as opposed to 5 minutes with aeration. The advantage of using a pump for aeration is cost - you never have to buy compressed oxygen cylinders.

persnickety, but effective
I really liked the flow in my wort on the first use but quickly learned that, as stated in numerous places on the internet, you can't do a lot of touching the stone as the oils from your fingers are liable to plug up the tiny tiny holes on this unit. I suggest just using some latex to rubber gloves when handling the stone (screwing it back on after cleaning). It works great when not plugged and a cycle of rinse with hot water, maybe some pbw, rinse and then sanitizer works well. MAKE SURE YOU BOIL THE STONE JUST PRIOR TO USING AGAIN! This will kill bacteria and flushes any remaining residue on the inside. Goes together easy, hooks up easy and is effective with both the oxygen and whisper pump hook ups. Nice size!

I keep my stone in an old White Labs vile full of Vodka. I don't boil it anymore and have had no problems. Nothing lives in ethanol.
