    Compressor for Continuous Aeration

    I have a couple tanks I have outgrown that I am interested in turning into yeast propegators. Anyone have a suggestion for a continuous running pump that won't be loud as hell that I can use to aerate the yeast? The old Homebrew Aquarium pump is not powerful enough and I don't really relish the idea of having a noisy compressor turing on and off all day long.

    Bottled Air

    While I'm not sure about this, isn't it possible to buy food/medical grade compressed air, or the same grade O2? And would the cost be prohibitive to go that direction instead of using a pump?

    I'm not sure, but something to think about.

    What about an air pump from a hot tub with a HEPA filter in-line? I've seen them for around a couple hundred bucks for something like 1 HP.
