Wort Aeration System
Complete Wort Aeration System
Instead of diffusing pure oxygen into your wort, this is a system that uses filtered air. The included air-pump pushes air through an inline sanitary filter which is then dispersed into the wort through the 2 micron threaded stainless steel diffusion stone. The advantage of an aeration system is that you never have to buy replacement oxygen tanks. The downside is that aeration takes longer than oxygenation. Using this system, 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 be also used to pre-fill fermenters with sanitary air. Replacement filters will need to be replaced every few years.

Could use some improvement August 16, 2014
Reviewer: Tom Sellers from Alberta  
This system uses a noisy single outlet aquarium pump (they normally sell for about $15.00) and a small cheap looking directional flow air filter that was attached backwards when I got it. Rather than using it as suggested in picture, I ended up fabricating one of the orange carboy siphon caps so that I had dual air inlet and blow off tube capping the carboy at the same time. The air feeder line on the outlet side of the filter only allows the aeration stone to go about 1/3 of the way down a carboy, whereas I assume it would be much better to have it near the bottom. You have to connect the airlines by sliding them over the airfilter outlets, a rather fussy procedure that improves your chances of contaminating the line when it is ingressing through your carboy cap before you get it sanitized properly. Overall you could build a much better system for less money if you can find an apppropriate air filter and food grade lines for it that you can attach to a better quality aquarium pump.
