How does that mixstir get the O2 in the wort? Unless you have to splash a lot. And do you have trouble with the foam up?
Is the Mixstir powerful enough to get a whirlpool going in the kettle ( 10 gal ) or would a paint stirrer be more appropriate for this?
I pour wort through funnel into Better Bottle, put a tennis ball under the center indent in the BB and swirl it.like this http://www.better-bottle.com/products_master.htmlI have been pondering this for a while the Mix-Stir, are sold as wine "de-gassers" so if it it's degassing wine how is getting oxygen (which is a gas) into the wort?
I also use the mixstir for aerating the wort. It's fast and easy to use. I've also used pure O2 from a sintered stone, but have switched back to the mixstir. Both methods work well.
O2 in the air is free. Pragmatism wins again.

Be careful Bo! You could go blind doing that.
