The OxyWand is a new take on existing Oxygen wands. Featuring a 24" long 1/4" stainless tube, this wand is made with a flared end to mate directly with existing flared oxygen stones. The advantage of this is the ability to easily remove and boil the stone, ensuring a bacteria free environment for your beer.
The 2.0 Micron size works great with aeration pumps, as well as Compressed Oxygen Cylinders. The 24" length allows for use with carboys, conicals, and most other homebrew vessels!
The OxyWand™ comes with the 24" stainless wand with turned end, a 2.0 micron diffusion stone, and the nut / washer required to connect the two.
Can also be used for oxygenation of wine must during fermentation.
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 1-5 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 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.
The advantage of using a pump for aeration is cost - you never have to buy compressed oxygen cylinders vs 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.
