Wort Aeration System
The aeration system is designed to provide yeast cells with the necessary oxygen for reproduction and fermentation of your brew.
This system includes an aerator pump, a sanitary air filter, a 2-micron diffusion stone, and two 12-inch pieces of tubing that connect directly to both ends of the sanitary filter.
To effectively aerate the wort, it is recommended to do so after it has been chilled and before the yeast is added, as well as before fermentation begins. Aerating the wort while it is hot can result in undesirable flavors in the final beer. Similarly, it is best to avoid aerating the beer during fermentation to avoid the same issue.
This unit comes fully assembled and ready to use. Once the wort has reached a temperature of 26°C or lower, you can lower the diffusion stone into the fermentation tank to reach the bottom. Plug in the pump and let it aerate for approximately 30 minutes before adding the yeast.
