Description

Instead of diffusing pure oxygen into your wort this system uses filtered air. The included air-pump pushes air through an inline sanitary filter which is then dispersed into the wort through our two micron threaded stainless steel diffusion stone. The advantage of an aeration system is that you never have to buy replacement oxygen tanks. The down side is that aeration takes longer than oxygenation. Because the atmosphere is only about 20% oxygen, the diffusion stone must be left running in the wort for approximately 30–120 minutes (however even 5 minutes of aeration is better than shaking the carboy.) There is no concern of contamination during this period, however you do have to monitor the fermenter periodically for possible over foaming. While you are brewing, this system can also be used to pre-fill fermenters with sanitary air. Replacement filters, FIL90, which need replacement every few years, are available for $4.99.

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 air flow 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 (CL60). To store the filter, use a little tinfoil on the "In" of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag.

affordable for a beginer that has never aireated wort

Reading book called "Yeast" looking to put 8ppm in my beer without shaking anything.

Foam
Well, I don't know if it really does anything for my yeast but it definitely foamed up my beer.

Air it out
If you can't afford an oxygen tank, get this. Much better than shaking a heavy carboy. Plug it in, and let it bubble for 30 mins or so. Complete and ready to go.

Oxygenating Wort
This pump is easy to use and easy to clean. Dropped in in the fermentor and let it run. Foam reached the top in twenty minutes, but as it was only a small batch (2.5) it seemed to be just fine. While I can't actually measure the O2 ppm, I got a very robust fermentation after a about a 12 hour lag. Looking forward to a great beer.

Not convinced it’s worth the trouble
Difficult to get the bubbler to stay on the bottom of the carboy. Finally used a long meat fork to hold it down. I don’t notice any difference after using it. In fact, time to yeast activity was increased. Coincidence? Possible.

Response from MoreFlavor
Hello Jeannie - When oxygen is introduced and forced into a fermentation schedule, yeast will indeed have an increased time in their aerobic respiration stage. There is more oxygen in the medium to consume, this will also depend on pitching rates. Oxygen gives yeast a stronger cell wall, making them more adapt and stronger for high gravity fermentations.

Worked like a charm
Decided to up my game and start aerating my brew. This little pump, filter, and stone worked well. Easy to use and clean too.

Waste of money
This item is worthless in my opinion. The hose from the pump to the filter is so loose it couldn't get air through the sanitary filter if it wanted. After the stone gets wet in the wort, it takes more pressure to release bubbles. I ended up buying the Oxygen bottle regulator and taking the hose assembly and using it with the regulator as told to by one of the people there.
Hmmm. I thought that I was finished with tropical fish... anyone need a pump?

Great system for the $
I've been using this for over a year now and it has really increased my attenuation. Love it.

Improves Fermentation
I've been using this product for about 2 months with spectacular results. Now I can get fairly good attenuation down to 1.005 for my dry Kolsch brews, even at lower ferm temps. I typically run let the pump run in a bucket of Star San for about 5 minutes to sanitize the stone, bubble off the foam, and then aerate for about 30 minutes in the wort.
