1vertical, how long do you typically "gas" the wort? I typically go anywhere from 60 sec to 80 sec. I've heard you can go into several minutes for big beers.

The beers have been fine, so I may have overstated the temp a wee bit!  This summer has been hot and my chiller only gets it down to those temps, by the time I get it into the carboy and get my self together it's probably closer to 70 - 73, not sure. Guess I should actually check next batch. I could wait longer in my basement which is cooler.

I typically pitch between 75 and 80 degrees. I use a stone with those red oxy bottles you get from HD. I have read many different opinions on how long to oxygenate, some based on temp, some based on OG, etc.. Most of my beers tend toward the higher OG range. I have been increasing the time of late because I don't seem to get as far along in fermentation as I think I should. Is there a "Too Much" when using a stone? Is there a "Rule of Thumb"?
