Or just stay away from oxygen all together.
By doing what?
I gave up on the PITA of oxygen and use a Mix Stir now.
Amanda, you get today's pragmatism award! My experience is that a MixStir works as well as an O2 setup.
Hooray! Do I get a sticker or something? But seriously, on a homebrew level I just don't see the point of pure O2.
I think a mix-stir is just fine for medium gravity ales. I was always a fan of the old whisk until I started getting whisk-elbow....
But I like using O2 for high gravity ales and lagers. It was also a Christmas present so if it didn't come from Santa I would probably still be using the mix-stir.
I put my canisters in with the recyclables. Asked and was told it was not a problem if empty.
