I'm off work until Jan.4th, so tomorrow it'll be a Vanilla Porter and on New Year's Day I plan on either an American Barley Wine or IIPA (still undecided).

I use a MixStir to aerate (not oxygenate) my beer...I also use a mix stir and it works great for making mead and wine too.
Under $20 and in my unscientific survey as effective as O2 or an aquarium pump.
Sooooo, I didn't dry hop the porter. I wasn't able make it work but in the end, the porter ended up being an extra stout at 6.8%. Has a nice flavor but is going to need some time to condition. I need to get another vessel to dry hop.You could always try dry hopping in your primary fermenter, maybe after initial fermentation has taken place.
