An economical way to build your own oxygenator

Review by John Yates on 2/3/2018

After looking at several different oxygenation kits, I found this valve to go on a disposable O2 tank that I got at the hardware store. With a 3’ section of tubing and a .5 micron air diffuser my own kit was complete. I just tied the diffuser to the long end of a brew spoon, turned on the air and gently stirred the bubbles into my cooled wort. After getting the best and most active fermentation ever...I’m a total believer in oxygenating the wort with pure O2. I could never get enough O2 into the wort by just shaking the fermentor.

Works Well

Does what it's supposed to do. Fits well on a Bernzomatic O2 cylinder, remembering it is left threaded. Aquarium tubing fits well, too. Just does its job nicely, without excessive spillage and hazard.

Great regulator and great price

Review by Jayson on 10/15/2015

The regulator is well built. It's smooth to adjust to get a gentle flow. Note that the hose barb is not removable and is 3/16", whereas most carbonation/oxygenation stones have 1/4" hose barbs. You can force a 1/4" hose barb into 3/16" hose, but its very difficult to remove then. You can use a hose clamp and probably get a good seal, but there's a good chance it'll leak. What I did is buy a nylon hose coupler (Menards sells them) for 1/4" hose and then force it into the 3/16" hose on the regulator side, and 1/4" hose on the other side to the stone.

Work Great

Does what it needs to do. Extremely cost effective and a solid product.

Mandatory tool for giving yeast Oxygen

Review by Tarsicio on 7/25/2013

I picked up this tool and use it with every batch that I brew. I like that you can pick up this component, makes it cheaper if you already the other parts.
