Hey there Im looking into buying an inline wort oxygenation setup. I keep coming across the one from GW Kent and the one that Stout tanks offers. I just now saw this one one from Morebeer. Has anyone used this particular setup? http://morebeer.com/products/pro-series-oxygenation-assembly.html It appears to be your typical arrangement, just curious if anyone has used this and found anything that they do or don't like about it.

Cheers,

2 T's. 4 clamps, a sight glass, a pressure gauge, and a carb stone.

pretty simple design and easily built with parts. Seems a bit expensive considering, and I will assume this, that these are chinese parts.

I have not used this item, but I have used other inline carb assemblies. I say build your own. easy and probably could get close to built with parts you have at the brewery.

I can't help but agree. Zahm & Nagel makes excellent SS stones. Get a T and a TC mount stone, being sure that the stem of the stone is long enough that the stone itself is fully in the flow of wort when installed into the end of the T. Z & N will be more than happy to help you with this. Probably won't be cheap, but someday you'll realize that this is the x-thousandth brew you've used it for. The gauge on the other T should be a thermometer, not a pressure gauge. Be sure you get one that can be easily calibrated (most can, also get a glass lab thermometer for a reference and use it regularly) and use a thermowell to mount it in the boss of the T. We had a problem with contamination on the cold side, and we've eliminated every threaded fitting after the HX--you just can't clean and sanitize exposed threads.
