    You got it South Country, on some our high gravity beers I use oxygen but right now I'm just using the "Oxynator" and those small O2 cylinders from Lowes and we go through them really fast if I use them for all our beers.

    Pumping wort into the top of the primary fermenter and letting it fall to the cone to aerate?! that's how I read it.

I also recently started brewing a holiday porter with spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) and have noticed the same thing. Both use US-05 and I aerate by splashing into the primary. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed any similar patterns and might have any suggestions to speed up primary fermentation. Thanks!
