---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2008 07:56:58 -0600 (CST) From: David Kudrav <dkudrav at hiwaay.net> Subject: Oxygenation Recent discussions have raised the following questions in my mind: 1. I've never gone out of my way to oxygenate, other than using a funnel with a filter after cooling the wort to transfer from my boil pot to my fermenter (filter and funnel to remove hops and debris from bottom of boil pot). But I've never noticed any type of problem with my beer without forced oxygenation. Should I force oxygenate, with a stone & gas tank?--what difference would I notice in my beer? Other people have had my beers and like them (ie, no obvious problems with most batches). 2. What of olive oil as substitute for oxygenation? I've read an article or two about this, but am not sure I'm convinced of it. Is the chemistry sound, or is it bunk? Does anyone use this method? What are the results? Thanks, Dave Kudrav Return to table of contents

When sanitizing, I have been using RO water with StarSan. I want to use my tap water that has gone through the water softener instead. Will that work alright? I want to stop using the RO water for sanitizing. Thanks, Keith Return to table of contents
