Wort Aeration System?

Hello I have a ? about this aeration system in which i own. The ? is this system of aeration good enough for brewing high OG’s beer’s an Lager’s . Or should I gotten the O2 system I would of gotten it but money for me is short. ???

Is this what you have

?

If so, you are fine.

Many resources list 8-10ppm of dissolved O2 for the yeast for ales, and 10-12 for lagers.

Method… …DO ppm …Time
Siphon Spray… …4 ppm …0 sec.
Splashing & Shaking …8 ppm …40 sec.
Aquarium Pump w/ stone …8 ppm …5 min
Pure Oxygen w/ stone …0-26ppm …60 sec (12ppm)

Remember, you have to replace the O2 tanks from the hardware store. More cost. Or up grade to a large 02 tank from the welding shops. Again, more cost.

The aquarium pumps should give your yeast a healthy environment to hang out in.
