So I did brew an IPA last week and oxygenated with my wand. I did things a little out of order, and I took my hydrometer reading AFTER oxygenating. The OG reading that I got was way off. The OG was supposed to be 1.065, and it was 1.05 something. It was so far off that I didn't even note it. Should I have taken a sample and read it BEFORE dumping all the oxygen in? I can see where the added oxygen might affect the gravity/buoyancy.
Am I way off the mark here?
It's doubtful that made a difference... you're not going to dissolve a meaningful amount of O2 at room temperature/pressure. 10ppm is good for yeast but very little overall.
