Commercial breweries introduce up to 10 ppm of dissolved oxygen before the process of fermentation. But at least 5ppm is necessary for proper yeast proliferation. There are many techniques in providing oxygen to beer and these include manual agitation and splashing. However, the most effective way is to inject pure oxygen to the wort by using an aerator. This technique uses pressurized oxygen and diffusing it to chilled wort. It is necessary to introduce oxygen to chilled beer because it does not cause the oxygen to evaporate and transform back to its gaseous form.
To become a successful home brewer, you need to pay extra attention in the oxygenation of the chilled wort. If you are looking for aerators that you can use for your home brewing system, let us help you find the right one. At Ontario Beer Kegs, we have a wide selection of oxygenation assembly for you to choose from. We also carry oxygenator spare parts and accessories for those who want to repair their old and broken aerators.
Oxygen is critical to the successful formation of yeast and we make sure that we have the right tools to help you achieve this process.
