High Capacity Disposable Oxygen Cylinder:
- 157 Litres (213g) Food Grade Oxygen
- M12 Metric Thread
- Steel cylinder pressure rated to 110Bar
Pure oxygen is the best way to get your yeast off to a cracking start. Simply use this high pressure and high capacity disposable tank to boost dissolved oxygen levels in your cooled wort. Oxygen is great for use with high gravity beers or pilsners where you are trying to build up a large population of yeast. We would recommend the use of a diffusion stone. These small diffusion stones create very fine bubbles of oxygen in your wort and help the oxygen to dissolve into solution faster. We therefore recommend the use of this oxygenation wand.
Attach the regulator to to the top of your disposable cylinder. Turn pressure up to 10-20psi. Immerse diffusion stone in wort for 1-2 minutes. The wort must be cold as it is extremely difficult to get oxygen to dissolve into hot wort so it's essential to cool wort completely before starting this process.
These particular disposable cylinders are made with a metric M12 thread so they have a different thread to conventional refillable oxygen cylinders. High Capacity Unlike Bernzomatic cylinders, these high capacity cylinders hold more than 5 times more gas meaning better value for you in a cylinder that is not much bigger in size.
