In line wort aeration

Post #1 by Sfgiant » 1 month ago

Hi haven't posted in 5 years but been lurking. I moved a few years back and haven't able to brew but my obsession with the hobby has persisted. I have been upgrading my system and will be brewing soon. I generally brew 10 gallon batches will be moving up to 15. One of the last things to upgrade is a way to oxygenate wort. In my early days splashing was fine in a carboy moved up to 10 gallons and used an aquarium pump. I just want to streamline the system going to get this https://www.morebeer.com/products/st...-assembly.html

Insteed of oxygen I'm just going to use with a pump and air filter. I've looked on line any cant find any info on how long to airate. I'm going to place after plate chiller before conical. Any help would be appreciated.

I remember an episode from the Brewing Network a few years ago and they said it takes awhile to get the proper oxygen level in your wort. I don't remember how long though. Have your thought about using the small red oxygen tanks with a regulator? 2 or 3 minutes per 5 gallons of wort and you are done.

All depends on your gravity if it under 1060 just airate for 1-2 mins
If it is over 1060 do it the second time 12 hrs after you pitch your yest
