The Spike Oxygenation (O2) Kit was designed to provide homebrewers with a simple solution for oxygenating their wort prior to fermentation; Happy yeast = happy beer! The days of slow or failed fermentations are over, and a giant 10lb oxygen tank is no longer the only solution! The O2 kit is designed to attach to a standard hardware store oxygen tank and will precisely oxygenate your wort to make sure fermentation goes smoothly! With that precise flow control, eacg oxygen bottle will oxygenate up to 200 gallons of wort; saving you time and money!
Quality of Beer
Oxygen is to wort as coffee is to Monday mornings...it gets you going! So what does that have to do with beer? We teamed up with White Labs to give you the 411 on all things fermentation. When experts unite, amazing things can happen—just like when oxygen dissolves into the wort, allowing yeast to begin a healthy fermentation, leading to high quality brews.
Easy to Use
Set up your Spike O2 Kit in a minute or less! With quick connect fittings, a compact oxygen tank, built in pressure gauge and adjustable flow control, this kit has everything you need to keep your yeast happy, beer delicious and your space neat and tidy.
Accessible Oxygen Supply
Oxygenating your wort is crucial to yeast health—but there are many ways to do it. Methods range from a drill and paddle, the old-fashioned shake method and all the way up to using a bulky 10lb tank of oxygen. The Spike O2 Kit is designed to fit a standard red oxygen tank, which can be purchased at most local hardware stores. These tanks are inexpensive and the perfect size for out-of-sight storage.
The Spike O2 kit has adjustable flow control built right in to provide the perfect amount of oxygen for your wort and a pressure gauge which reads how much oxygen is left, so you never run out halfway through a Brew Day again. And if you do need a new bottle of oxygen, don't fear. Most local hardware stores will carry them.
Saving You Time & Money
The built-in pressure gauge indicates when the bottle is getting low, which won't be often since the small tank can oxygenate about 200 gallons of beer—saving you time and money.
Most oxygenation kits on the market have a regulator that is more or less an 'on' and 'off' switch. Because of the precise flow control built into our O2 Kit, our engineers were able to determine that the perfect setup is 1/4 LPM (liter/min) for 30 seconds per gallon of beer. That's about 200 gallons of beer with just one red oxygen tank!
