The Wit is Brewed...

10 gallons sitting in carboys below, aerated, pitched, and awaiting fermentation.

This batch has definitely underscored the need for me to start using pure oxygen instead of my aquarium pump and aeration stone. Sorry, but waiting around for 1.5 hours to pitch into two carboys (45 min each) SUCKS BIG MONKEY BUTT.

So I'll be going the el-cheepo route initially and getting the little knob that will let me use disposable O2 bottles. $24 for the regulator, I've already got the stone/tubing, and then $7/bottle.

And it will save me 94 minutes on brew days like today.

I think it is nearly a necessity for 10 gallon batches.
