Hey I saw your thing and I like it. I also noticed there wasn't a group on Thingiverse dedicated to things for home-brewing related activities so I made one! I just wanted to see if you wanted to join and add your thing to it so we can develop a community of brewers with printers.

Hope all is well!

How do you print this?! I'm guessing with much support?

Yes, support material is needed. I'm actually going to redo this for smaller ID tubing when time allows. I'll see if I can come up with an alternative design which doesn't require support material.

You would also be able to use this for fly sparging. I have seen these sold at homebrew shops for that reason.

Also, can you explain what material it would be made out of?

Using PVC since that's what I have spools of. Printing with a Replicator.

How are you printing with PVC????
You dont mean PLA?

I've recently gotten into home beer brewing, and being an engineer, I've wanted to bring more control to the involved processes. Aeration seems to be a crucial control point for a good batch, but there aren't many good ways of controlling it without the use of expensive equipment such as oxygen stones, so I'm very excited to see this!

Would you mind adding some more documentation as to how to use this device properly?

Thank you!

I'm not to brewing myself, but here's how I plan to use it. After cooling the wart, I'll hook up a 3/4" ID transfer tube from the ball valve on my kettle to the aerator. The aerator will hang in the carboy or fermentation bucket and in theory will aerate the wart so the yeast can do it's job effectively. If you don't have a ball valve on your kettle, you can probably add a small section of tube between your funnel and the aerator.

Designed with a 3/4" OD for a 3/4" ID transfer tube.
