  • Q and A

The aquarium pump aeration system is a safe and economical way to introduce oxygen into your wort. The pump works to force air first through a sanitary in-line filter, which removes dirt and contaminants. It then pumps the air into your wort through the included 2 micron diffusion stone, dissolving much-needed oxygen into solution in the process. This system can help you achieve an oxygen concentration of 8 ppm. Simply allow it to run from 20 to 30 minutes. Unlike oxygenation systems where tanks must be replaced, this will never run out of air! Simple, effective and economical. If you are not yet actively aerating your chilled wort, you don't know what you (and your yeast) are missing!

Comes with aeration pump, tubing, in-line filter, and 2 micron diffusion stone. Carboy NOT included.

Pump is waay to weak

Great customer service and speedy delivery from great fermentations, as expected. Opened this thing up and tested it out and have some product quality issues: 1. The tubing supplied is much shorter than that shown in the image. There is about 2 1/2 feet of tubing from the pump to the filter, and another 2 1/2 feet from filter to aeration stone. Going to be rather difficult to find somewhere to set the pump to reach the top of my conicle. Tubing is permanently kinked in a few spots, but doesn't seem to impede flow. 2. This is the biggest issue - the pump is waay too weak to get adequately small bubbles. The airflow is so poor that the small bubbles produced at the stone join together until buoyancy carries them upwards. If I remove the stone and just put the tubing straight into water I get the same number and size of bubbles. I remembered that I had an old air pump for an aquarium from a decade ago. Pulled that sucker out and attached it to the filter and stone. works like a charm now. Until the pump is upgraded I would highly recommend not purchasing this rig. You would be better off buying the pump from a pet store, buying longer tubing, and the filter and stone separately.
Owner Response:Thanks, Matt for the feedback! Not sure how big your conical is, but the tubing seems to be just right for a 6.5 gallon carboy. In terms of the pump, we'll be sure to bring your feedback up with the manufacturer. Cheers! Bryan
